In the Rich Tradition of The Shepherd of the Hills
and The Least of These My Brothers
Recognized as one of America's early twentieth-century beloved fiction writers, Harold Bell Wright possessed the remarkable ability of crafting timeless, dramatic stories charged with spiritual significance. A Higher Call, a compelling drama involving a young minister, promises to challenge the perspective of the twentieth-century church.
A new and rather naive pastor, Dan Matthews accepts his church call with great anticipation. But he quickly runs into deeply rooted problems: judgments, 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?
How does a beautiful young nurse who seems to have no heart for the church fit into a pastor's life?
