Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
R. W. Metlen's timeless adult fable, The Voice, tells a simple, brilliantly presented story replete with quirky humor and spiritual insight. A man in a rowboat is fishing when a Voice says, "Follow Me". The man disregards the Voice. When the boat springs a leak, the man blames the voice. When he discovers that his boat is stuck and he cannot reach his oars to propel the boat, he fears that if he gets out of the boat to follow the Voice he will surely drown. The Voice again says, "Follow me" and "I love you". Finally the man takes the risk, steps out of his boat, and discovers he can walk upon the water. The Voice is a perfect little allegory completely accessible to readers of all ages and backgrounds, of the call to discipleship, a new endeavor, a new life style, or taking any other kind of personal risk to follow the commands and entreaties of God.
