“And the Shofar Blew” – Book Review, Whitney Hopler – Read more Christian book reviews and excerpts. 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 this relevant. The results can be disastrous, both for the shepherd and for his flock and Francine Rivers’ And the Shofar Blew (Tyndale House) illustrates.

I always learn so much from Francine Rivers’ writing about the heart and character of the Lord. At first I didn’t understand, but I’ve got to give Rivers credit, that is extremely realistic. I really felt like slapping him so many times, seeing the way he sidelined Samuel, Stephen and even his beloved wife Shotar and son Timothy. Return to Book Page.

Many people will leave, and the church as it was known may die. As a pastor’s daughter married to a pastor’s son, I hte tell you firsthand that a pastor’s life is a difficult one, and the same goes for his wife and children.
And the Shofar Blew is a reminder of God’s faithfulness to us even when we are not faithful to Him. I’m saying there is more to the story. And she also makes sure her characters don’t “pray away” their troubles. I read this book in 7 hours. I found this story a sobering reminder of how the slow fade of sin can take you places you would never dream you would ever go.
The conclusion of the story worked for a tidy Christian novel.
And The Shofar Blew
The reminder of God’s faithfulness to us even when we are not faithful to Him, and how the gospel is needed every day is uplifting. I recommend it to those seeking a realistic but hope-filled glimpse into the life of church leadership as well as people in leadership who want a fresh reminder into the shfoar of pride. Really well done, a great read.
This is an all time favorite of ours. This book speaks to a great number of people and the relevance of its themes makes it a good novel for church leaders, wives, mothers, fathers and people struggling with addiction, to read and learn from.
Attendance was up, way up. We sympathize with Paul’s wife Eunice, who suffers mostly in silence as she watches her husband slowly turn into a copy of his dad.
Eunice endured trial after trial from this man and the congregation–couldn’t we see some of the worldly payback that surely came Paul’s way? The narration was divine. Once you read the first few chapters you will find yourself engulfed in this modern day story that could dhofar taking place right now. I think I will try some other books by this author!
