'Walker's laterally thinking humour shows an intimate knowledge of the sometimes strange behaviour of us church folk. I haven't laughed so much for ages ... An excellent Chrsitmas present for almost any churchgoer.'
'... slightly irreverant, but very humorous ... If you have friends who think church is dull and boring, and wonder what you see in attending, then this might just settle their minds once and for all. Alternatively keep a copy in your smallest room and listen out for the guffaws.'
