Bishop Eddie Long and Steve Harvey

Bishop Eddie Long (L) and Steve Harvey

*Steve Harvey sits down with Bishop Eddie Long, pastor of Georgia’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, for an exclusive interview to air Wednesday, May 25 on his daytime talk show.

In 2010, Long ran into controversy after several lawsuits alleged that he used his influence to coerce a number of the church’s under aged boys into sexual relationships.

All of the lawsuits were eventually settled out of court, and Long has denied all allegations through attorneys and spokespeople.

For the first time, Long will discuss his struggles during that time period, as he and his wife considered filing for divorce, and he contemplated suicide. Bishop Long will talk to Steve about resilience, as described in his latest book, “The Untold Story: A Story of Adversity, Pain and Resilience.”
