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 author Nancy Rue, The Reluctant Prophet shows how one person's response to God's call can change a community forever.

Well done. The main character is edgy and "has issues" yet she hears the promptings of God and acts on them. Her heart is filled with compassion for local women of the street, and she has a great impact on them. Well written and inspiring.

Very well done. Good characters and not too "preachy". Definitely not cliche.

Only not wonderful part is near the end, when the main character reveals something in her past--I won't give it away, but it is not realistic that this did not consume a huge part of her thoughts.
