And The Shofar Blew (Paperback)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 and God’s plan

SAMUEL MASON sat parked in his white DeSoto across
the street from Centerville Christian Church. The
old place was like him; it had seen better days. Half
a dozen shingles were still missing from the steeple, blown off in
the windstorm of ’84. The paint was chipped, revealing aging gray
clapboards. One of the high, arched windows was cracked. The lawn
was dying, the roses overgrown, and the birch tree in the courtyard
between the church, fellowship hall, and small parsonage had some
kind of beetle killing it.
If a decision wasn’t made soon, Samuel was afraid he would live
long enough to see a For Sale sign posted on the church property and
a Realtor’s lockbox on the front door. Reaching over, he picked up the
worn black leather Bible lying on the passenger seat. I’m trying to keep
the faith, Lord. I’m trying to trust.
“Samuel!” Hollis Sawyer limped along the sidewalk of First Street.
They met at the front steps. Hollis gripped the rusted iron railing with
his left hand, planted his cane, and hitched his hip, lifting his prosthetic
leg to the second step. “Otis called. He said he’d be late.”
