From the Back Cover
"A provocative and moving spiritual autobiography that vividly portrays the ongoing struggle of a person of faith toward wholeness and healing. It poignantly shows how the author has been mightily used by the Spirit of God to spearhead a ministry of renewal and celebration."--Dr. Donald G. Bloesch, author, Essentials of Evangelical Theology
"I am delighted to recommend this fascinating account of an unusually interesting life. This is more than an autobiography, however. Indeed, the details of the author's life--told with great color and conviction--serve as the opportunities to insert deeper reflections on the significance of God's blessing on her life and ministry."--Fr. Patrick Henry Reardon, editor, Touchstone, and author, Christ in the Psalms
"What we have here is the courageous, candid, and intense witness of a woman whose experience of God has asked, quite simply, everything from her. In chapter after chapter, readers will see what wholehearted obedience to God may cost His servant. It is an extraordinary tale."--Thomas Howard, author and retired English professor
"Each path to heaven is unique. Leanne Payne's account of her journey to date relates a steep and often lonely path, full of rare terrors and beauties. Reading this rich, eye-opening memoir of pilgrimage, one cannot but be grateful for the bravery and frankness of the walker, not to mention the faithful persistence of her Guide. A story of dead ends, rabbit trails, giddy ridges, and spectacular summits, Heaven's Calling quickens and encourages one's own steps along the way."--Michael Ward, author, Planet Narnia, and chaplain, Peterhouse, Cambridge --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
