Another great story by Dr. Richard Mabry. I always enjoy his characters and how he skillfully portrays them along with an interesting and inspiring message in his writing.
Scott, once a practicing surgeon, has abandoned medicine and gone to seminary. He blames himself for his wife’s death. He is now an associate pastor at a small community church.
Abby is a general practitioner who seems to be counseling people more than helping their physical ailments.
Bannister moves from town to town preaching and doing healing services with his sidekick Randy.
These three are seeking and searching for their purpose in life. Will God use them, and in what way? Adding to the storyline is a sinister soul leaving threatening notes to Bannister to get out of town. And his message gets louder and louder. Each deed he does gets bolder and bolder. What does he really want and what’s the reason for the threats? God must cause each one to swallow a “bitter pill” in order to get their attention and listen to him.
I received a complimentary copy of this novella from the author but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
