And the Shofar Blew: by Francine Rivers
Author: Francine Rivers
|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.|

He seemed like the perfect pastor to lead Centerville Christian Church. She was the perfect pastorís wife.
When Paul Hudson accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didnít take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance was upóway 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 wasnít right, and it hadnít been for a long time. . . .
Eunice closed the bedroom door quietly and knelt beside her bed.
Iím drowning, God. Iíve never felt so alone. Who can I turn to but you, Lord? Where else does a pastorís 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.
