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.
"This book is a powerful and almost-prophetic statement of the church in America. . . . And the Shofar Blew is a must-read."

Pastor Paul Hudson has finally received his calling to lead a church of his own. With his wife and young son, he moves to the small town of Centerville to begin his ministry and breathe new life into the floundering church, eager to prove himself and follow in his mega-church pastor father’s footsteps. But in his zealous pursuit of his own vision for the church, he quickly loses sight of God’s plan.

This book is a warning against the way of the world creeping it’s way into the body of Christ. Some people may appear to be Christians outwardly, but only God knows what’s truly in our hearts. Real faith produces good works, but not all good works are motivated by real faith. But no matter how far off the path we’ve strayed, God has the power to transform our hearts and lives, bringing redemption and reconciliation that would be impossible without Him. This is a picture of what a healthy church should look like, and what it doesn’t look like. ( )

I don't read a lot of Christian fiction but I loved this book as it speaks of a reality that few people talk about. A young, enthusiastic and dynamic Pastor is given too much power and has too little accountability in a growing church. He justifies this on the basis that if it is growing it must be a sign of God's blessing and so he continues to move forward gradually using more and more of his own strength and less and less of God's. The change happens over a long period so is less obvious to acquaintances but very obvious to those close to him. He begins to treat family and friends with contempt thinking that they don't understand him or aren't "gifted" in the same way. There is only one way the story can end...

Pride and ambition can creep into any Christian's life and ministry and this book is a timely warning especially for those in leadership who might lead others astray. In this book the Pastor has many superficial admirers that continue to praise him and his works even when his sin is hurting others and should be obvious to him. He is blinded to his sin and ignores those that care for him and try to warn him for his own sake, preferring the praise and admiration of those who will soon get bored and move on to someone else. Those who praise him are in reality a stumbling block to him as they allow him to continue in pride.

Recommended for all Christian readers ....as a reminder to stay humble, listen to God and to those that really care about our Spiritual walk. ( )

Excellent story for a book club discussion. Francine Rivers creates a story that modern families can relate to. ( )

Samuel Mason sat parked in his white DeSoto across the street from Centerville Christian Church. The old place was like him; it had seen better days. Half a dozens shingles were still missing from the steeple, blown off in a windstorm three years ago. The paint was chipped, revealing aging gray clapboards. One of the high, arched windows was cracked. The lawn was dying, the roses overgrown, and the birch tree in the courtyard between the church, fellowship hall, and the small parsonage had some kind of beetle killing it.
