Call of a Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife : A Book Review

Call of a Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife  by Marcia Moston

“The problem with promising God you’ll follow Him wherever He leads is that you just might have to go…”

There is nothing more intriguing than a great story that happens to be true! That is what Marcia Moston has done in her non-fiction book, Call of a Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife.

It is the stories of saints, like Marcia and her husband, Bob, who have had their faith tested that give us courage to persevere when our own is tested.

Marcia pulls the curtain back to provide an intimate view of what is truly at stake when we choose to follow Christ. From the beginning the reader feels as though they are partakers on the journey with Marcia and Bob. Their thoughts and emotions are palpable. You will share their fears, their challenges, their devotion, their love and their faith.

The scenery is vivid. Like a motion picture in your mind, her words will find you flinching on narrow escapes, squirming to the adjustments of a new culture, and being drawn into the colorful surroundings and personalities of those they encounter along the way.

You will laugh, you will cry and you will long for more. I whole heartedly recommend this book.

Call of a Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife is available online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christian Book Distributors or from your neighborhood bookstore.  It is also available in e-book formats for Kindle and Nook.

  1. “The problem with promising God you’ll follow Him wherever He leads is that you just might have to go…” I cried just reading the first line. I love God in the storms. He leads me places I really don’t want to go My trust has grown though and I wouldn’t change anything about the life He has given me. Courage is doing it afraid.

  2. raising2forhim–“Courage is doing it afraid.” Love it! And Sara–Hopefully the stories of others will encourage you not only that we all face fear, but that God is more than trustworthy.

  3. Thank you for the personal insight you share about this book. We have a women’s bookclub that meets sort of monthly and this is our read for the month of October. After reading your review I am looking forward to beginning the book. Thanks.
