Francine Rivers, the internationally best-selling author of Redeeming Love (K0031), has won many prestigious awards, including the Christy Award for Inspirational Historical Fiction and the ECPA Gold Medallion. More than a million copies of her books are in print. And the Shofar Blew is her poignant tale about the danger of straying from God's true path. Energetic young pastor Paul Hudson rejuvenates a dying church and boosts attendance so high that a new building must be constructed. But in his eagerness to please the new devotees, Paul loses touch with what truly matters.

"The sin of hubris in preachers whose pulpits give them great power is a riveting subject. AND THE SHOFAR BLEW, a contemporary story of an ambitious young minister and his flawlessly Christian wife, opens with Paul Hudson's call to revive a failing church in California. It thrums along as he builds it into a vehicle for self-aggrandizement and competition with his TV evangelist father, badly damaging family, friends, flock, and self along the way. Ruth Ann Phimister's beautiful work of conveying wife Eunice's piety, Paul's brash egotism, saintly old Samuel's patient sorrow, and so on with a cast of dozens, could not be bettered, unless she could be persuaded not to pronounce "realtor" as "relator."
