Embellishing each story of personal conversion and priestly vocation is a poem on the priesthood by Ronda Chervin, and a prayer for priests by a saint. The book is illustrated throughout with woodcuts and engravings from numerous sources.
Wishing there were more priests? Wishing that men sitting on the fence about a vocation knew how much lay people long for them to say yes if they are good men but just not confident of their abilities? Goodbooks Media has a great tool for letting such men catch fire from the stories of late vocation seminarians and priests from many countries and backgrounds. It was assembled by Ronda Chervin with beautiful graphics by Jim Ridley.
Paperback, 262 pp. 5"X8"
Last Call: Twelve Men Who Dared Answer edited by Dr. Ronda Chervin is a beautiful compilation of inspiring and colorful personal stories from men who discovered the call to the priesthood later in life. The perfect book to give to the guy you know with a possible vocation. It may be just the nudge he needs. It's also a wonderful read for yourself.
