The Reluctant Prophet
Title: The Reluctant Prophet
Author: Nancy Rue
Forty-something Allison Chamberlain is still halfheartedly trying to figure out what to be when she grows up. It’s a surprise to everyone when she feels a divine nudge to buy a Harley motorcycle and go wherever it takes her. Soon Allison finds herself in the darkest corners of society, bringing home drug addicted prostitutes and pointing out the narrow fears of her church group. Along the way, she learns the heartache of the very poor – and how healing can come through the voice of God and those who follow it.
At age forty-two, Allison Chamberlain is still making a half-hearted attempt to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. Although she has been a pew-sitting member of a church for seven years, “prophet” has never been on the short list of possible careers. Then one Sunday Allison senses a divine nudge to buy a Harley motorcycle and go wherever it takes her. Soon she is wondering if she is called to present the reality of Christ to one of society’s darkest corners—and challenge her own church to look beyond their fears. The first in a brave trilogy from seasoned writer Nancy Rue, The Reluctant Prophet shows how one person’s response to God’s call can change a community forever.
