  • The High Calling By Charles M. Sheldon A novel from the best selling author of In His Steps What Would Jesus Do The story, The High Calling, was written at two different periods, in 1909 and 1910, and was read at two different periods, chapter by chapter, to the young people in my church, on successive Sunday evenings The main purpose of the story is to illustrate the value of the average family trainingA novel from the best selling author of In His Steps What Would Jesus Do The story, The High Calling, was written at two different periods, in 1909 and 1910, and was read at two different periods, chapter by chapter, to the young people in my church, on successive Sunday evenings The main purpose of the story is to illustrate the value of the average family training and the final victory of the spiritual ideals over material or physical attractions The final outcome of the struggle which Helen Douglas makes between her natural inclination to follow a life of ease and luxury, and the real training which she has received at home, is the picture of what is going on in the best homes to day As my own young people gave the story a beautiful reception in their listening to it, it is my earnest hope that if the book has the good fortune to find a larger audience it may reach young people with the same message.

    Although this novel was not as popular and well known as Sheldon s In His Steps it is a better written novel with better delineated characters and a tighter plot.

    I read The High Calling in a few settings after one abbreviated start It was slow to build, but once I was into the story, I couldn t put it down It was such a dear contrast to modern times and I loved pondering the massive amount of change in a century or so The characters were warm and personable I related to the central family and so enjoyed spending time with them as I read along I mourned the end of the book a bit, as I felt so at home with the characters and was sorry to see them go

    Excellent I had previously read In His Steps and enjoyed it This book is very good It takes you through many different moral dilemmas and requires you to think about what you would do in the same situation
