By Chinta Strausberg
CHICAGO, IL â€“ Just two-days before Valentineâ€™s Day, Pastor Ira J. Acree, author of â€œIn Pursuit of Mr. Right,â€ is holding his first book-signing for this book at 1 p.m., Sunday, February 12, 2012, at the Greater St. John Bible Church of Chicago, 1256 North Waller, in Chicago.
And if that is not a huge achievement, Pastor Acree is also celebrating his 47th birthday complete with cake, ice cream and light refreshments.
When asked what is his birthday wish, the activist Minister, Pastor Acree, said his ultimate dream and birthday wish is â€œfor each child in Chicago to have an opportunity to receive a quality education.â€
In the interim, Acreeâ€™s book not only teaches women the art of getting and keeping â€œMr. Rightâ€ but to do so in a righteous and biblical sense. His book also gives excellent advice to naÃ¯ve women who want to avoid meeting â€œdeadbeatâ€ men.
Pastor Acree gives women some controversial advice on how to get a man by being aggressive, how to keep him happy, and how to win your man when there is female competition nipping at your heels.
What is his secret solution? Acree uses the bible as his source of reference.
â€œIn Pursuit of Mr. Right is definitely a page turnerâ€¦. just from the title youâ€™re inclined to dive in and see what biblical principles Pastor Acree has to share. Finally, a book that on point with steps that unlocks secrets to lasting love. This book allows singles liberation without condemnation for wanting to be in the â€œrightâ€ relationship and marriage,â€ said Effie Rolfe, speaker and radio personality, assistant program director/music director at Inspiration 1390/WGRB AM 1390 and author of â€œThe (K)Nots Prayer Journal & SuperSize Your Thinking.â€
Rev. Dr. Marshall Hatch, pastor of New Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church who is professor of UrbanÂ Ministry at the Northern Baptist Seminary, said, â€œI find it interesting that many are reading Steve Harveyâ€™s book, the â€œKing of Comedy,â€ as if they are reading the bible. Here is Rev. Acree, married almost 25-years and is a pastor. I think people will find his book, one based on the bible, much more helpful.â€
Acree is also the author of â€œThe Man in the Mirror,â€ which was released in January 2011.
