    more from this reviewer

    This is an intriguing well written inspirational tale

    Seven years ago Allison Chamberlain found Jesus, but now he had yet to find the forty something woman though she diligently prays (and whines) wishing he would. At the Flagler Community Church while the Reverend Howard eloquently slings arrows, Allison finally receives a divine message telling her to buy a Harley.

    Allison fears she lost her mind, but also has learned to follow her impulses even if they seem inane. She purchases the Harley and soon still heeding the mental nudges from she assumes Jesus, Allison begins riding into the darkest communities she previously avoided like these were leper colonies as she brings the Word to the impoverishrd unfaithful while the members of the congregation she faithfully sat with in the pew fear for her mental state.

    This is an intriguing well written inspirational tale starring the aptly titled The Reluctant Prophet. Character (and bike) driven, readers will reassess their own faith and church as Allison follows the voice in her head riding her bike to places she avoided out of fear before she bought the Harley. Nancy Rue provides a terrific Christian inspirationa talel.

    Great book

    I liked this book so much that when we had the opportunity to go to Nashville, TN we went to Thistlefarm store and Thistlestop Café, the organization that was the model for Sacrement House. This is boots-on-the-ground Christianity...the kind Jesus lived. The characters were real and intriguing in their interactions, even those who only got a passing mention...leaving me wanting to know more about them also. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and purchased the remaining books in the trilogy. They didn't disappoint either.
