My New Hobby - Reading...Hopefully for Edification Purposes!!

And the Shofar Blew
by Francine Rivers

I just finished this book, and I highly recommend it! It shares the Gospel over & over in the midst of real-life experiences, or 'human blunders.' It's encouraging, as the author ties in Scripture that you'll remember and be encouraged to share with others in need.
Here's the author's synopsis:
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.
