A novel that tackles the question: Do I truly do the Jesus thing - or do I stay safe? In obedience to a divine Nudge, 47-year-old Allison Chamberlain buys a Harley and waits for further instructions. Those instructions turn her into a reluctant prophet who points out the narrow fears of her church group and take her into the darkest parts of her city.

I was scared at first, sometimes I feel like a reluctant prophet, the sense of if I read this I'm going to have to change was large so I read another book, when I finished that one there was no where for me to hide, this story chased me held me down, calmed me down and made me say OK God here I am send me, I know if you're in it if will be OK, the writer is wonderfully cheeky and real and encourages you to be you, the story is a treasure, if your a Christian and want to be useful. Read "the reluctant prophet". It will make you stand up and be counted, it has humour, danger, heartbreak, reconciliation, LOVE, and God's help & assurance all over it.
Hard working with 3 children and little time to read books however love the escapism that Audible offers me.....addicted listener
Absolutely brilliantly written novel that had me captivated from the moment the audiobook began. As brilliant as the writing is, Kirsten Potter brings this book to life with her brilliant narration........ well there's 3 'brilliants' in one paragraph, must be good.
"Very Good Christian Fiction"
Allison went from being a rich teen to out of work forty something. When God tells her to buy a Harley she has no way of paying for it, but somehow God provides the money. She goes from being what her church wants her to be to an outcast because she reaches beyond their comfort zone. It makes you want to ask yourself which Christian will you be?
Of all the characters we meet I loved the teenage boy Desmond the best, the reader brings his character to life in such a way it's both humerous and real.
I understand there is a second book and I can't wait to either read or listen to it.
I loved every bit of this book. I plan on getting all of her works. I saw there's a 2nd book for the reluctant prophet, but it's not on Audible! Please make this happen! I highly recommend this book!
"Average story that left me wanting more"
I wish Alison was more relate-able as a christian. You never hear her praying except for "Please God Please God". You never see her make mistakes in her christian walk. I wish she would have been more human in her christian walk, but stumbled at times in a relate-able way and was then redeemed from her mistakes.
This was my first
Her accents helped me quickly differentiate who was speaking. It was helpful.
Alison would be played my Helen Hunt and Chief would be Tommy Lee Jones.
I tried to hang in there because I thought it was a great topic. However, the story line moved a bit too slow without a lot of depth into the characters. I stopped short of finishing.
