The political unrest Walker portrays amongst the lives of these fictional members is interesting to read. Oftentimes, people have misperceptions on the way certain churches operate, and this novel allows readers to take a look behind the curtain to see just who the puppet master is and how he functions. In order for CHURCH FOLK to be truly enjoyable, though, fundamental changes to the organization of the book need to be made. There are a plethora of characters inserted into as many pages as possible, which clouds the plot terribly. The book is divided into twenty-three chapters with incongruous dates which lead to further confusion on what exactly is going on with whom and when. The scriptures included with each chapter seem to have no significance to the main point of the chapter and are often distracting. Overall, it was a struggle for me to really get out of the novel what the author intended to promote.

In the first couple chapters Church Folk started with a real church conflict. Then the fashback worked well as scriptures are interwoven with the plot and characters' actions. The plot's ending was right on time with Christians principles!
I recommend Walker's Church Folk to serious adult Christians and churchgoers. Blble study groups and seminary students will find this book helpful.
THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK!!!
