I discovered this book one day on a trip to the library and the back cover blurb intrigued me and so I took a chance on the author. (I had never read a Nancy Rue book before.)
Wow, was I glad I took the chance. This read was entertaining but one that made me think.
Here’s the premise so you can see why: “At age forty-two, Allison Chamberlain is still making a half-hearted attempt to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. Although she has been a pew-sitting member of a church for seven years, “prophet” has never been on the short list of possible careers.
Then one Sunday Allison senses a divine nudge to buy a Harley motorcycle and go wherever it takes her. Soon she is wondering if she is called to present the reality of Christ to one of society’s darkest corners—and challenge her own church to look beyond their fears.
The first in a brave trilogy from seasoned writer Nancy Rue, The Reluctant Prophet shows how one person’s response to God’s call can change a community forever.”
How many of you took forever to know what you wanted to be when you grew up? (Am I the only one raising my hand?) Even if you know your career path, sometimes we just don’t know how that fits into God’s plan. That’s what I loved about this novel. Despite the looks and conversations whispered behind Allison’s back, she follows God. And because of her obedience, lives are changed forever.
