A new edition of early 20th century best-selling author Harold Bell Wright’s The Calling of Dan Matthews edited by Michael Phillips.
A new and rather naïve pastor, Dan Matthews accepts his church call with great anticipation. But he quickly runs into deeply rooted problems: judgements, party spirit, church politics, and hidden agendas. Some problems come from well-intentioned people who don’t know better; others stem from selfishness and evil motives. In both situations, as Dan obeys the life and teachings of Jesus, the consequences are severe.
Dan Matthews believed he had a calling from God. Faced with the loathsome hypocrisy in his church, what will become of him and those he befriends?
