The Gate Seldom Found

Front Cover
Harvest House, 2004 - Fiction - 631 pages
Alistair Stanhope faces this question when his faith is shaken by the untimely death of his friend, Ben Aberlochy. Dissatisfied by the traditional answers of his church, yet driven by an urgency for understanding, Alistair and his wife, Priscilla, turn to a close circle of friends for reassurance and support. As these believers seek a deeper faith, they embrace a simple manner of worship in Alistair's own parlour. The resulting intimacy of their fellowship offers a testimony to the enduring nature of authentic Christian communion and the simplicity of the gospel. This novel dramatizes the true story of a little known Christian fellowship that flowered late in the 19th century. Resolute men and women lived out their faith in a world of violence and rejection to their message by some...and acceptance and transformation by others. Unforgettable characters step out of the story with an invitation to join them as they follow in the footsteps of Jesus and His disciples. As a result, we find our own lives irrevocably changed as we too must decide to follow wherever God leads. Book jacket.
