Hank Gavin's struggle to know God better and his willingness to give up the life he knew for what he believed he was being called by God to do made me ask questions about what I, myself, believed. The book started me on a lifetime journey. I wanted to believe that the God Hank found was alive for me, too. I had attended church all of my life, but what I was reading was a new way of seeing God - - new to me but forever present in His Word. I owe Mrs. St. John a tremendous debt of gratitude. I, too, believe that she must have had personal experiences which provided the idea for her book. My experiences with sharing the book are that one either loves it or cannot get into it. I've read it many times now and will read it again. It should be put back into circulation.

Perhaps it was what I was experiencing when I first found this book in a second hand book store, but whatever the reason I could not put it down until I finished it.
It is a powerfully moving story written without heavy theological dogma as to what is involved when a person has a personal experience with the Divine and chooses to follow that calling.
This is a book that changed my life and seemed to come at just the right time.

This book moved me immensely. As stated above, I read it 5 times from the public library and have recently decided I'd like to do so again. And, after this decision, decided it would behoove me to have it in my library.
It takes a man of the world who is "hit by religion" on an adventurous/spiritual journey. His wife, an agnostic at least, cannot buy into the whole idea. Sounds trite and not "of the times" but has some really deep values and decision making aspects that are great. Every time I read it I feel better myself.

I picked this book from a rack in a grocery store many, many years ago. It is a fictional story, but I found it absolutely fascinating that a story could be written about having such faith in God. It really opened my own thinking as to God's abilities and standing on His word. I would recommend it to anyone having a curiosity about the Christian walk or a desire to have a deeper Christian walk. Of course, after you have read the fictional book, then you must start reading the Bible to get a complete and non-fictional understanding of God's word.

I thought that "Tell no Man" was written by Edna St. Vincent Millay. If not it showed up under this author. The book will remind you that the minor miracles of our lives are really quite real and should be heeded. Although written as fiction, I have wondered if the author had some of the experiences that were written from the perspective of the protagonist. I hope that Amazon will make an attempt to find, and distribute this very interesting book.

I have given at least a dozen copies of this away. They almost never come back as they get passed from one Christian to another. At least one is still being passed around a cancer ward. The book uses the premise of "How would your life change if you saw an angel?" and describes one man's journey from affluence and power to a seminary and his own growth of faith. Warning: it's impossible to read this book without a Bible next to you - you constantly want to look up the actual passages referred to in the narrative. Acts, in the Bible, follows the gospels and gets little attention but it describes the promises Jesus made to his disciples of what would be possible if done in His name. Tell No Man is out of print, but Amazon can find it and it's a must-read for all Christians.

Love this book, but somehow, the address for its recipient got mixed up, so the book itself was never delivered to her. I had ordered it as a Christmas present.

The recipient address was on file correctly, so I have no idea what caused the mixup.
