Memory Lane Monday: And The Shofar Blew by Francine Rivers

Happy New Week Lovelies!

Welcome to Memory Lane Mondays!

This is a weekly feature of unforgettable books I have read in times past which have not had the chance to be reviewed on this blog as I read them a long time ago. Lets’ call them my personal classics. I will be featuring a new favorite every week and I hope you will be interested to read and enjoy some as I have.

This week’s pick is….

‘And The Shofar Blew’ by Francine Rivers



I think the above picture of my personal copy of this book should tell you all how many times I have read and re-read this book. This is a very relevant and predominant story in today’s church and it is one that I urge every Christian to read.

I always enjoy going back to read this story because considering how long ago the author wrote this book, the theme is still something that is a foremost concern to many Christians about their church leaders and I loved the way the story was told and the perspectives that the author allows the reader to view the characters.

Have you read this book? Please let me know your thoughts.

I highly recommend this book.


In the Old Testament, God called His people to action with the blast of the shofar, a ram’s horn. He still calls His people today.

In this relevant and timely novel, dynamic young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church—but at what cost? When Paul accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didn’t take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance is up, way up, and everything is going so well. If only his wife, Eunice, could see it that way. Still, he tries not to let her quiet presence distract him. But Eunice knows that something isn’t right . . . and it hasn’t been for a long time.

The more Paul’s zeal and ambition builds, the more 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.
