Présentation de l'éditeur

She feels God nudging her toward ministry, but what options are there for a young single woman?

Emily Evans has a hard time getting herself to class on time, much less figuring out God's will for her life. Then, to her surprise, she feels that God is calling her into full-time Christian service. She expects the Lord will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry, but Emily does not want to marry any of the available young men. She squares her shoulders and decides she will accept the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community--alone.

When Emily arrives at her new assignment, she is disappointed to find the church building in disrepair. After many days of hard work fixing it up, she announces her first service and is once again disappointed, this time in the size of her congregation. Is her faith strong enough to stand against the local doubters and myriad challenges that will test her calling?

Book Description

When young Emily Evans went off the Bible School, she had all she could do just to keep up with her studies, let alone discover God's will for her life. That discovery seemed to be limited to those who had everything together, not for those who struggled even to make it to class on time. Then comes the chapel hour when the vast needs of the prairie settlements are presented. To her surprise, Emily feels God's call into full-time Christian service.

Emily expects that along with His calling, God will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry. But Emily does not feel comfortable with agreeing to marry any of the young men who present themselves. The decision is made: On her own, Emily will take on the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community.

But were those struggling years of Emily's training sufficient preparation for all the responsibilities and challenges of running a parish? Is her faith planted firmly enough to not be shaken by local doubters? It is one thing for her church to have faith enough to send her, and quite another for her faith to sustain her away from family and friends.

A Timeless Story of Enduring Strength and Commitment Through Hardships and Joy

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Calling of Emily Evans - A GREAT book! 9 juin 2000
Par "anne-girl" - Publié sur
This book is about a woman who is called by God to set up a church. She has many problems along the way, including poor attendance, a low food supply, and a difficulty convincing people that God is indeed real and needed in every single life. She does NOT step out of the boundaries of the Bible. Emily simply sets up a church and teaches because there is no preacher in the area. She doesn't preach, only tries to help people see the importance of a faith in God and tries to help them understand the Bible and how important it is. This is a wonderful book that helped me understand things more clearly and get things sorted out in my own faith. I thank Janette Oke for writing such a great book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Her Best 25 avril 2004
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur
Despite the fact that Mrs. Oke created a good plot for this book, I was keenly disappointed in it. I felt as though Mrs. Oke knew not how to write about certain scenes in the book. She therefore, quickly brushed through that certain scene and TOLD us what happened, not necessarily SHOWED us. It seemed as if huge chunks of the story were missing, leaving me hungry for those chunks. I didn't particularly, like the ending at all. Although I believe in surprise endings, which is what she gave us, this ending didn't quite seem to fit. True, all of Emily's (the main character) struggles would have been solved with the ending (I'm not telling you just what the ending was...he he.), but...I don't know, I was also disappointed with it. Now, Mrs. Oke didn't do such a bad job; the plot of the story was very charming itself. Mrs. Oke just didn't do the best job of telling it.
The plot begins with Emily Evans, a slight, young, and not the healthiest woman, studying dutifully away at Bible School. She isn't the brightest little thing and has to work harder than others to achieve her good grades. She isn't quite sure what's she doing at Bible school, but she strongly feels it's what God wants her to do, for ever since she was young, she's had a strong desire to serve the Lord. Then, during chapel one day, she decided to fill that desire and become the "deaconess" at the mission in Wesson Creek. Her father packed a bunch of gunny sacks and crates and sent her off, although he wasn't too sure that any woman (no matter of their health) should do the preaching. He thought that preaching was a man's job, and especially since Emily is so often sick, I guess you could say he sort of resented her going. Nevertheless, he gives her his blessing and prays for the best.
Once Emily arrives, she is very disappointed in her house and church. She spends about a week fixing it up (with the help of some crews). Then, she holds her first service and is once again disappointed, except this time, it's in the size of her congregation. Emily struggles on, meeting new people, finding enough money for her food, and laboriously preparing sermons. She even falls in love with Shad, but his unbelief in God, makes it seem rather hypocritical to allow him calling. Big John, the mercantile owner, poses hard questions for Emily to answer, and she has to do some researching. To sum up, the book is all about Emily's struggle to obey God's calling, even though it isn't her first choice.
All in all, I guess what I'm trying to say is that; Oke had a good plot, but skipped some major parts. The book was ending all too soon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Read 6 décembre 2002
Par G. B. Mccormick - Publié sur
This account of a young woman following God's voice to the mission field in an era where women were only supposed to marry the first boy or man that came along and raise a family is truly inspirational. Not that I have anything against raising families. This book inspired me to believe through writing only as Jeanette Oke can, that I too, even with a family of my own can be used by God. What a wonderful adventure in someone elses shoes as well! I highly reccomend this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A tender and touching story 1 septembre 2001
Par K. Morgan - Publié sur
The Calling of Emily Evans is a tender and touching story. Young Emily gets her calling to become a pastor while in Bible School. While her father doesn't want her to go off by herself to minister to a new community, Emily's mind is made up. This is her calling and it is what she's going to do.
Emily does not have an easy time trying to build her congregation. She is met by challenges but faces them head on. She never gives up. She is very determined to make her church successful and doesn't want anyone to know when time are hard for her.
The Calling is a wonderful story. Ms. Oke writes about characters the reader finds themselves caring about. From Emily to Big John the characters are wonderfully written. The plot is good and the development of the characters is excellent. This book is great! It is a tender,touching story that will warm your heart. Definitely worth reading and recommending to someone! Read today!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great and inspiring story 24 avril 2013

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I always enjoy historical fiction and especially anything by Janette Oke. I happened across this book while trying to find something new to interest me. It is a wonderful story of a young girl who heads out to answer her call to minister to a small rural community. Along the way she faces challenges and hardships. She even has moments of doubt when tragedy strikes, but her faith helps her find the strength to help those who need her most. In the end it also helps her to find love. This story is simple, but compelling and you won't want to put it down.
