Description du produit

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 Faith-filled Historical Romance 18 janvier 2014
Par Voracious Reader - Publié sur

Training for ministry work didn't come easy for Emily Evans. She struggled to study, make the needed grades, and be accepted into the field as a single woman. She gets the chance to open a church in an impoverished pioneer community, but conditions are hard, and she often doesn’t even have enough to eat. She keeps pushing on, however, but along the way she begins to wonder if this is really what God wants her to do. When she’s drawn to Shad, a non-believer, she really questions herself. As things unfold, she learns to trust more and more in God for all things.

With Janette Oke’s books, the readers always knows what they’re getting--a good historical romance with a strong thread of faith holding it together. Here, I could crawl inside Emily’s life and live it along with her. I rooted for her through all the difficulties, and reveled with her in the end. What more could you ask for?

The Calling of Emily Evans by Janette Oke
An insightful glimpse of finding and answering God’s call.
Emily Evans wanted to understand God’s will and plan for her life. How was one to know such a thing?
Set in the early 1900s, Emily studied at Gethsemene Bible School in West Canada in the early 1900s. On Christmas break, Emily approached a subject sensitive to her father; she told him about the women at her school who were preachers and helped in the ministry, sometimes with their husbands. Her father’s opinion of women preaching was less than positive. Emily sought God in her prayer time to know if He was calling her into His work.
When she returned to school, a desire within Emily’s heart to minister in the Missionary Church and lead people to Christ kept her seeking His will. By spring she answered a call for volunteers to help start churches in far-away places.
Following her schooling, her strong spiritual commitment to God led her to new places, new people, and new opportunities. Her ministry assignment was a hard two-day drive from her home in her secondhand buggy with her grays.
This courageous young lady was obedient to the call of God in difficult circumstances. Reading this book you’ll see how God was faithful to her.

I enjoyed every word of this story about a time in the past when women were finally permitted to study for the ministry. Emily is a brave pioneer, forging ahead in spite of the worst circumstances, setting aside her own needs and desires to serve others. I was so caught up in the story, I couldn't help worrying that Emily was going to make a mistake in trying to secure her own future with a marriage. She turns out to be wise as well as brave and strong and the conclusion was satisfying. I was amazed by the hardships these women were forced to endure and my respect for them is enormous. I'll keep this book on my Kindle to read again one day.

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.
