"For Christ and the Church" by Charles Monroe Sheldon is a powerful and thought-provoking novel that explores the challenges and complexities of living out one's faith in a rapidly changing world. The story follows a group of dedicated Christians who are faced with a moral dilemma when their beloved pastor is accused of a crime he did not commit.

Sheldon's writing is both engaging and poignant, drawing the reader into the lives of his characters and challenging them to consider their own beliefs and actions. The themes of social justice and Christian ethics are woven throughout the narrative, reminding readers of the importance of standing up for what is right, even in the face of opposition.

It is a testament to the power of love and faith in the midst of adversity, and a reminder that true discipleship requires courage, compassion, and a willingness to challenge the status quo.

Book Description:
Rev. Mark Spencer is about to give up on writing his sermon one Saturday night when the Devil comes to him and tries to discourage him by reminding him how few of the people who have pledged themselves to make their motto, 'For Christ and the Church' keep it. The minister decides to preach a sermon like nothing the people in his congregation have ever heard before--a sermon that stirs them to action and to give themselves fully to God. A sermon that urges them to pledge themselves again to Christ and the Church! - Summary by Esther ben SimonidesCast ListRev. Mark Spencer: David OlsonThe Devil: K.
