    " It's one of my favorite books because it's about things that happen in a church. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Milli | 2/20/2014

    " This is my 5th Francine Rivers book. I love that it is an easy read, but still has spiritual applications. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy Oler | 2/19/2014

    " should be required reading for all people involved in a church! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy Dion | 2/9/2014

    " A good look at the damage that can be caused by focusing on quantity over quality in a church. A cautionary tale, a parable about the importance of humility and love instead of efficiency and worldly success. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerri | 2/8/2014

    " Not her best work, in fact was a little disappointed. However, I liked the recurring theme of redemption though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 2/4/2014

    " Pretty good -- she's a good author. "

    " A must read for all Pastors & Pastor's wives.......or anyone in who wants to learn what can happen in a church or how to help a young couple called to minister to a church. Your heart will go out to this young wife! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 1/7/2014

    " Another one of the books that brought me to tears. There are just so many life lessons in this book. So many things that you will have seen or know someone who has seen....and it reminds you how much love means, and how many things it can over come. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shélah | 1/7/2014

    " I read this years ago and cannot for the life of me remember what it was about... clearly it wasn't very memorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorinda | 12/18/2013

    " A reminder - "that we are Christains first" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Bragman | 11/23/2013

    " Love Francine Rivers...great book..frustrated me a bit about the actions of the pastor in the story but so real... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelly | 11/15/2013

    " Very mixed feelings about this one. Has good points but I'm not sure they outweigh the bad. This is DEFINITELY fiction and the ending may even be classified as a fairytale! Can't wait to talk about it at book club! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simamile Ndaba | 5/31/2013

    " Francine Rivers captures the challenges of the modern church perfectly. "

    " This was the best education in what NOT to do in ministry! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 7/11/2012

    " I would give this a 4 1/2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 4/2/2012

    " Excellent! This book should be required reading for all seminary students, worship leaders, and anyone in a position of authority in the church. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillain Foreman | 3/12/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Morrell | 12/20/2011

    " Good overall message. A little hard to get through in the middle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kdesoto | 11/11/2011

    " This is a wonderful book. It makes me realize that I must depend on God for EVERYTHING! Reminds me that it is easy for any Christian to start thinking they're in charge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Von | 10/22/2011

    " This was a pretty easy read. It was cheesy at times but gave a pretty good glimpse into the world of an average pastoral family's life and complexities of what pride does to us. It kept my attention b/c I wanted resolve. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Honkanen | 8/25/2011

    " It was ok, but I had a hard time relating to a person who had such an old fashioned name as Eunice. The struggles in her marriage were hard to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 8/6/2011

    " This is a Christian Fiction that EVERY church member should read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelia | 7/16/2011

    " Pretty good book but not her best. About a minister who gets the big head when his church begins to grow and he forgets about who God is and to keep Him exalted above all... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryjo | 4/9/2011

    " Although I rarely read Christian fiction, a coworker recommended this book. Wow! I think pastors both young and old should read it. Sadly, I have witnessed some of the stuff that happens in this book happen in churches today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 3/14/2011

    " What an awesome story of how God can take any situation and work through it to bring his children home. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/23/2011

    " This book was such a realistic portrayal of what happens when we stop relying on God, quit listening to the Holy Spirit and do things in our own strength. I loved this book. It is so applicable to the Church today, every Pastor needs to read it and heed the warning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 1/9/2011

    " Accurate portrayal of unhealed people in ministry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/7/2011

    " Powerful story of what could happen when we forget that its all about God and not about us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corrie | 1/1/2011

    " Started slow but got a little better. Not my favorite book of hers but entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/1/2010

    " Note: hard to read through such a troubled story but makes you analyze your own life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 8/26/2010

    " A must read for all Pastors & Pastor's wives.......or anyone in who wants to learn what can happen in a church or how to help a young couple called to minister to a church. Your heart will go out to this young wife! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marla | 8/6/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 7/29/2010

    " Another awesome book by Francine Rivers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 7/20/2010

    " Responsible for many late nights.... I was a little disappointed in how quickly all of the loose threads were wrapped up in the last two chapters. Without a doubt, a riveting, thought-provoking read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 7/16/2010

    " The book was well written, but it really made me sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 7/8/2010

    " Great Christian principles taught but definitely not her best. One of the main characters was intolerable... if I hadn't wondered what would happen with the rest of the characters, I may not have finished it. "
