Overview

THE CALLING OF DAN MATTHEWS.....A GREAT CHRISTIAN NOVEL! INSPIRATIONAL...YOU WILL GROW PERSONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY FROM THIS READ! 375 PAGES IN PRINT!

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 between his role as the spiritual puppet of the church elders and his strong desire to prescribe a dose of heavy ministry to his ailing congregation.

Here is the main theme: A young, rookie, naive preacher comes to the Ozark town of Corinth to take the reins of the church. He was raised in the mountains and is a strong man. He quickly generates a rapport with the working class of the town. However, the church elders dislike him on account of his sermons drifting from the old "Jerusalem" stories they are accustomed. Instead, he preaches loving the down-trodden and the poor.

In "The Calling of Dan Matthews" I have tried to say that the one thing above all that a man cannot do and reckon his life worth it's face value is to be untrue to his own heart and soul convictions or to occupy himself with other than his own work. That Truth, first to self and thus thru self to the race -- truth expressed in its only adequate language, life -- is inseparable from the Christianity of the Christ -- that without this truth for the goal of all striving neither man nor society nor institutions can be rightly called Christian.
