Michele Andrea Bowen's writing captures the era and the culture beautifully while Denise Burse narrates the unfolding events with the style and flavor of an American Southern town during the story's timeline.

The story puts the reader in Mississippi among people who may remind them of those with whom they grew up, interacted, or worked. If it does not, this reader can attest to the feelings of authenticity and charm these people bring to the story.

Church Folk is an enjoyable read/listen about a black community in Mississippi circa 1961-1963. The plot centers around a young, handsome, black man, Rev Theophilus Simmons, and his courtship of Essie, a young, good, black woman worthy of marrying. The story evolves through the characters' behavior with one another during the days of Civil Rights. Some of the male minor characters, including those of the cloth, use women in the community as objects to satisfy their sexual urges which makes them feel desirable and important. As one elder female citizen points out, some women think that having sex with a man of God is a pathway to grace by way of his penis. This slice of life is fraught with humorous colloquialisms like this. At first, Essie questions Rev Theophilus Simmons' intentions knowing many men, especially good looking ones, like to play the field. She did not want to be a player in any man's field. This quality in Essie is one of the reasons Theophilus courts and eventually marries her. Theophilus proves to be the man Essie believes him to be by his devotion to her and his stance against the corruption in the church.

Church FolkThis Story is a breath of fresh air in literature dealing with the church. Though it is fiction,its bases is rooted in Historical fact,anyone associated with an episcopal-type church setting[churches run by Bishops} can readily see its reality. The

church organiztion described is a grass-root organiztion as the clergy are paid a nominal salary inducing some to take shortcuts in gaining funds to downright extortion. Rev. Theophillus Simmons is a dedicated minister who ends up well. Rev. Marcel Browm and cronies break the rules and is brought down by his spurned fiance Saphronia. Saphronia is the real heroine of the story. Hell Has no fury like a woman scorned. The story is set in the rural south between 1960-1964. This story needs a sequel,or a series. It would lend itself to the big screen. the story grips you from the start,it is easy reading . It is worth your time.

I purchased this book a few years ago. I just couldn't find time to read it. I decided to read it last week and could hardly put it down. I finished it today. Very good!

Chile! This book is too funny. (hint) Pastor's false teeth falling out during service (I laughed so hard while reading it on the bus the lady next to me just got and sat somewhere else-She must have thought I was crazy!) I LOVED IT!*!*! I like the way she tells this story. This book comes at a time in my life when I struggled with the dilemma of dealing with crooked christians. It reminded me that I am not losing my mind, but that the wheat and tare will be growning together until harvest time. The characters are so tangible. The storyline was excellent! I am now reading her next book "Second Sunday". My only critizism is this, the slang used in the book doesn't seem to fit the era or maybe its me. Maybe she should do some research and find out what slang terms were used during the 60' & 70's. Other than that she has my vote!

This book is a true page turner. There are a few areas where the story gets a bit hard to imagine, but over all it keeps you laughing and wondering what will happen next. The characters develop nicely and the story flows smoothly as more people enter the picture. I will have to read more of this author's material.

This book was very good, i enjoyed every minute of it. I like when the good overcome the bad. The way she describes the people, the clothes, the scenery, it makes you feel like you are right there with them. She is a gifted writer and i read all of her books and i always will.
This book wasn't "my cup of tea", but I am glad I read it. The story line reminded me of my Baptist church days for some reason and the details were very vivid. This book was written by a woman, but the author did a good job writing it from a man's point of view (if not only from the description of the women in the book). All in all....I give it a thumb down. I wouldn't read this again. However, I would recommend this book. It may be enjoyable for others. Hopefully, Ms. Bowen's others books are better. I will give her one more chance then on to the next author.
