A relevant and timely novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and The Masterpiece
Dynamic young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church―but at what cost? When Paul accepts the call to pastor a struggling church, he has no idea what to expect. But it doesn’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.

Absolutely great book
This was a tough book to read because the message was so powerful. It really spoke to me and convicted me of many of my wrong attitudes regarding my church family / church home. It was very well written and timely. I highly recommend this book to any and all!
And the Shofar Blew
Great! Loved this book! The minister's fall to pride and tickling his congregation's ears is hauntingly familiar in many churches today. I encourage you to read this book and sound the "Shofar" in your own church.
