Product description

In the Old Testament, God called His people to action with the blast of the shofar, a ram's horn. He still calls His people today.In this relevant and timely novel, dynamic young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church--but at what cost? When Paul accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didn't take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance is up, way up, and everything is going so well. If only his wife, Eunice, could see it that way. Still, he tries not to let her quiet presence distract him. But Eunice knows that something isn't right . . . and it hasn't been for a long time. The more Paul's zeal and ambition builds, the more he loses sight of the One who called him. As Paul and those around him struggle to discern what it truly means to live out their faith, they must ultimately choose between their own will and God's plan.

Review quote

"Francine Rivers' latest work lives up to her reputation as a truly gifted Christian writer ... Her prose and style are poetic ... I have anxiously awaited for this book since I found out in February that it was due in May and I was not disappointed.," "As I read through I was amazed at the various parts of my own personal and professional journey where I may have taken credit for things I had done and not given all the glory and honor to the one who so rightfully deserved it - Our Lord! As a wife and mother I was married to my job and my family suffered a great deal. I laughed, cried and was amazed at how the story really grabbed me.," "Please read this book. There is no way you will be disappointed."

Back cover copy

"He seemed like the perfect pastor to lead Centerville Christian Church. She was the perfect pastor's wife." When Paul Hudson accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didn't take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance was up-way up. Everything was going so well. If only his wife could see it that way. Still, he tried not to let her quiet presence disturb him. She knew something wasn't right, and it hadn't been for a long time. . . . Eunice closed the bedroom door quietly and knelt beside her bed. " I'm drowning, God. I've never felt so alone. Who can I turn to but you, Lord? Where else does a pastor's wife go for help when her marriage is failing and her life is out of control? Who can I trust with my anguish, Lord? Who but you?" Grasping her pillow, she pressed it tightly to her mouth so that her sobs would not be heard.
