My new novel
Just launched on Amazon
A true story about facing the challenges of Christian leadership in a volatile environment of political intrigue and church secession
Twenty-eight year old Andrew Murray has just married Emma Rutherfoord, the girl of his dreams, and is looking forward to resuming his ministry in Bloemfontein with her at his side. But he is barely back in town, when trouble strikes.
The small, land-locked Orange Free State throws up a series of nail biting situations in which Andrew is called upon to play a central role. They include:
Then there is the ‘small’ matter of Andrew only knowing his wife Emma for about seven face-to-face weeks before he married her. So on the home front, Andrew finds himself having to navigate marriage with a wonderfully talented wife, but one who knows her own mind.
Added to this is his growing desire to start over again in a new congregation. But although he hankers to go, there are responsibilities forcing him to stay—that is, until God has finished with his training.
