In the Old Testament, God called his people to action with the blast of the shofar, a ram's horn. God still calls his people today. In this relevant and timely contemporary novel, dynamic young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church - but at what cost? As Paul's zeal and ambition build, 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 or God's plan. Download and start listening now!

    " I couldn't put this book down!!! Took three days to finish it, staying up until 1AM sometimes, and I cried through the last chapter and epilogue! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie Crothers | 2/3/2014

    " Really slow in starting as author has to set up so much background but toward middle of book it gets really good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Bogelund | 1/30/2014

    " ok, I was surprised by this book. I am such a snob about Christian fiction! And yet everytime I pick up something by Francine Rivers I am pleasantly surprised. This book hit really close to home, made me sad and grateful and prayerful and thoughtful, and stuck with me for days. A really good read. Warning, it is slow for the first third- skip ahead if you have too, but keep going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 1/22/2014

    " I really liked the whole book except the end. As a Christian I suppose I should appreciate the end. God gave grace where grace was desperately needed. I guess as a sinner, I wanted Paul to suffer more than he did. It wasn't enough for me. AHHH How horrible of me to say that. I loved the theme of the book and I personally felt that the book was speaking to me in so many ways. It broke my heart reading how much a Pastor's wife struggles. I wish I was more like Eunice in many ways but I know I will always be a strong willed person no matter how much I love the lord. It's just how I was made. Good book but for me, I wanted a different ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Savacool Taylor | 1/16/2014

    " It is good to read a christian book that has so many themes from recovery! If only she would of expanded that addition and recovery are not just alcohol but codependancey and other sins that keep us from God and having a closer relations with Him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/12/2014

    " 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 Rshelite | 1/12/2014

    " Very very good --Really liked this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chandra | 1/5/2014

    " not my favorite of hers, but still good... i would say this one is written more for christians than some of her others which i would recommend to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/3/2014

    " this book changed my life "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 T Phillips | 12/20/2013

    " When you attend a church on a regular basis you realize that by reading this book that most if not all churches are prone to the same difficulties. This book shows that God never promised that the cross would not get heavy or the hills not hard to climb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/19/2013

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 12/17/2013

    " As a pastor's wife I could relate to much of the feelings of the main character. I was hooked on it from the first few pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 11/22/2013

    " This book really made me look at my own relationship and see if there were areas I was neglecting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 10/13/2013

    " Francine Rivers is best known for writing about outrageously impossible choices with heart wrenching consequences. This book followed the same suit, but reading about the arrogance of the husband was intensely uncomfortable, and the end tie-up was much too neat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorinda | 9/13/2013

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendra | 8/19/2013

    " This story is an incredible story of grace, mercy and the miracles God works within even the most difficult of circumstances. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 7/2/2013

    " Also one of my favorites... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 3/29/2013

    " Usually love Francine Rivers. Instead of historical fiction, this book was set in relatively modern times. Interesting to see impact of societal norms/pressures on a church, but the characterization of the pastor was a little too much....made the character less believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Milli | 7/26/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 5/4/2012

    " Very different from her other books. Still a good read. A bit slower. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel N | 2/1/2012

    " Not Rivers best, but it kept my interest. A sobering, extreme picture of the destructive nature of pride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleisha Luck | 12/11/2011

    " Anyone who is looking to become a pastor or is going to marry a pastor should read this book. It is an amazing book and I learned a lot from it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 12/2/2011

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 8/25/2011

    " 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

    " I really enjoy Francine's redemption storylines, as in The Last Sin Eater. "

  • 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. "
