BOOK BLURB: One of the first contemporary novels to highlight a female pastor in the evangelical community, along with the tensions and controversies surrounding her leadership role. Riveting, compelling, and inspirational. Destined to become a classic.

Randall Arthur rocked the Christian world with his first novel Wisdom Hunter. Then there was The Betrayal and finally Jordan's Crossing. These were ground breaking books because nobody had written a novel like he did about legalism. He was transparent and brutally honest of it's affects on a community and the world. It was a wild ride that wasn't preachy. He gave the circumstances and let the readers make up their own mind. Many (including myself) found this refreshing.
Randall Arthur is back with a novel that has blown me away even more then his first novel. Again he brings up a subject and lets readers decide for themselves how to respond to what they read. I'm thrilled to introduce this new novel Quiet Roar: Sometimes disruption is overdue.
That gives a peek into a congregations experience through change of Pastors, traditions, and a brutal look at what missionaries can get caught up in as they share the good news of Jesus. It made me think of the original disciples. They were on a mission to share the news Jesus told them. They weren't always well received but they kept sharing.
How did you come up with the idea for A Quiet Roar?
RANDALL: My wife and I were driving through the backroads of Georgia. As we approached Toombs County, we were discussing the subject of ‘women in ministry.’ As we passed through the small towns of Vidalia and Lyons, I asked out loud what would likely happen if the most prominent church in the area announced they were hiring a female pastor. We were in deep, central Georgia; a conservative, traditional, church-going culture. Being a Georgia native, I knew instantly how the community would respond. And within thirty minutes, I had built the basic outline of the novel. Even though I had another novel outlined and ready to commence writing, the story of A Quiet Roar took precedent. And it wouldn’t let me go until I finished it four years later.
NORA: Thank you for sharing all these photos and the story behind your novels. I'm THRILLED to share this thought-provoking book (that discusses much more than a woman pastor in a small town. Your story rocked my world as much as Wisdom Hunter did!
Thank you Randall for stopping by and giving us a look at your new novel; a peek into your heart and a front row seat into how Quiet Roar came to be. This book is about so much more than a woman pastor it's about the human heart, change, and a peek at missionaries on the front line risking it all to share the good news of Jesus.
I love that your books cause me to go back to the bible and look at things for myself and let God do the rest. Like Wisdom Hunter (which is a book I still think about); readers will be moved to dig deeper into their heart and think about why they do what they do. This book would be great for book club there is so much to discuss. This novel is definitely a keeper.
