More Church Folk: Book Review and Giveaway



About The Book:


It is now 1986, and the preachers of the Gospel United Church are preparing for their much-anticipated Triennial General Conference. The last time readers encountered the good Rev. Theophilus Simmons, he was a newlywed and the pastor of a modest-sized congregation in Memphis. Now he's the father of three and running a congregation in St. Louis. His best friend, Rev. Eddie Tate, is now with a fast growing church in Chicago, but he is getting real frustrated with the way things are run in the Gospel United Church.






About The Author:


Michele Andrea Bowen graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an M.A. in History and a M.P.H. in Public Health. She lives in Durham, North Carolina. Michele is the author of the #1 Essence bestsellers Church Folk and Second Sunday.


My Review:


This is the first book by Michele Andrea Bowen that I have read, and I have to say it was a pleasure. Although a follow up novel to best-seller, Church Folk, I had no trouble following the characters and story-lines within More Church Folk. It was a very well-written book that combines humor, mystery and church politics all in one. I am definitely going to go and read Ms. Bowen's previous work, as I really enjoyed this book. The descriptions of landscapes, and characters were so vivid that I felt like I was right there in the story. That is one thing that I look for in a book, so that was a huge bonus. If you have been a fan of Michelle Andrea Bowen and African American Christian Fiction, you will definitely enjoy this book. If you have never read her work before, you need too! You will enjoy it thoroughly!


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
