622 Comment The Calling of Dan Matthews

  1. This is the sequal to Shepherd of the Hills, one of my all time favorites, but it could stand alone This book is thought provoking and a little harder to read due to its message Even a hundred years later this book seems relevant to life, the church and Christianity today I enjoy this author s description of the country side and of people I liked his use of the Ally as a character to represent the murkiness of thought and action behind the scenes This was a product of its time so be ready for s [...]


  2. Read this a long time agojust a warning that the theology is a trifle out of the box, but it definitely made me think a bit I liked the story but was not too keen on some of the doors opened by interpretation of some beliefs Definitely a Christian story, though A sequel of sorts to Shepherd of the Hills, with recurrent characters.


  3. This book was a lot deeper and harder to read than The Shepherd of the Hills It was good, but definitely incredibly thought provoking I found myself disappointed with the ending, but seriously pondering the criticisms of the modern church This book still seems relevant 100 years after it was written.


  4. This is the sequel to Shepherd of the Hills Dan Matthews, son of Sammy and Young Matt, becomes the new minister of the Midwestern town of Corinth The peaceful town is turned askew when the town s new nurse, the minister s romantic interest, comes to the aid of an outcast woman after her suicide attempt Dan battles his conscience about whether to be the spiritual puppet of the church elders or to prescribe a dose of heavy ministry to his ailing congregation This is a timeless story based on the p [...]


  5. I was impressed with this book, as I was fearing a sequel to the Shepherd of the Hills could only be disappointing Apparently I did not have enough faith in Harold Bell Wright He was wise in making it connected but not so much that if you hadn t read the first one you couldn t enjoy this one His writing style is superb and using The Ally was a most descriptive way in capturing this small town.


  6. The book is based on the author s experiences in Lebanon, Missouri aka Corinth in the book After living in Lebanon for awhile, I can testify it hasn t changed much in a century The truth hurts, and I was just as glad to leave Lebanon as Dan Matthews was to leave Corinth Nearby Bennett Spring is described in the story referred to as Gordon s Mill and it is just as it was in the story a beautiful getaway with some fun fishing.


  7. It s funny sometimes to read books which were written in and about a world separated from ours by so many years, and yet the characters and situations feel so familiar Some aspects of the book were a bit confusing but the no apologies message confronting hypocrisy among those who call themselves Christians came through clear and strong Good storyline and very convicting read.


  8. This was a good book with great depth of things to think about The writing was tough At times the story just flowed and then it would get so hard to follow The depth of the story speaks to all of us of growing up and following our calling and sometimes finding our calling is not what we thought at all.


  9. This wasn t as much of a page turner as the first book The plot seemed a lot predictable as well But I did consider this book thought provoking I agree with the other reviewers that claim that the book begins with a lot of promise, but seems to fall short in the end This book is worthy of reading due to it s message But I wouldn t consider it Bell s best.


  10. This is the sequel to Shepherd of the Hills I enjoyed this and found it to be very uplifting and full of good old fashioned values and home spun wisdom but for me it was nothing like Shepherd of the Hills An excellent book and beautiful story but Shepherd of the Hills is just at another level in story, language and writing.


  11. It is a story written in 1909 regarding a young pastor of a set church in the Ozark Mtns It is a little tough on the church but a good story examining the difference that sometimes surfaces between the work of the church and the work of the Lord A little romance, etc, but regardless a good read.


  12. Didn t care much for this book It seemed to lead to of a humanitarian lifestyle as being better than a Christian worldview Writing style didn t flow very well eitheris book showed great promise at first, but fizzled at the end.


  13. One of my favorite stories The subject of the true church is an inspiring, yet disturbing topic The corruption within the temples of mankind is enough to turn many believers away.



  14. Wright does it againNot quite as good as Shepherd of the Hills, but still worth the time Good quality old literature, not like the many new cheap books.



  15. This book is a product of its time, so expect racism and sexism However, the storyline and theme are so strong, I was compelled to finish despite the dated aspects of the book The message about hypocrisy in church circles has not lost its effectiveness Romance and heartbreak are always compelling, and the author may have been ahead of his time in pointing out that true faith can be found outside of the church I wonder how that went over in his day.
