It is a must-read for anyone in ministry and especially for those wrestling with the call to preach. The stories of eight outstanding preachers are honest, inspiring and timeless.

It is a joy to read and a pleasure to recommend.~~Rev. C. Edwin Chase, United Methodist Minister (Retired), South Georgia Conference, The United Methodist ChurchThe stories in this book will be a valuable resource for those in the ministry or those contemplating entering the ministry. I was especially touched by Frank Robertson’s story of his call to preach. Bishop Robertson was the best Christian man I’ve ever met.

He was a mentor for me and for other young ministers. His call to preach was authenticated by the life he lived—his love of Christ and devotion to His church. I heartily recommend to you I Heard the Call to Preach.~~Rev. Dr. Albert Clarke, United Methodist Minister (Retired), North Georgia Conference, The United Methodist ChurchI congratulate Dr.

Westerfield upon re-publishing I Heard the Call to Preach. I read the original writings some fifty years ago. Since that time, it has been my privilege to know and serve with five of these ministers. These men would enjoy long pastorates and would be highly regarded for their work. The need exists today for others to take their places and to serve with the same faithfulness.~~Rev.

Dr. William Oliver, United Methodist Minister (Retired), South Georgia Conference, The United Methodist ChurchWhat is it like to receive “a call to preach”? I Heard the Call to Preach addresses this question with autobiographical accounts of eight clergy who served in the South Georgia Conference during the 1940’s. These inspiring stories are an encouragement, not only to those sensing a call to preach, but to all those discerning God’s call on their life.~~Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett, North Alabama Conference, The United Methodist ChurchThroughout my life, it has always been my honor, my joy and my privilege to be the daughter of Bishop Frank Lewis Robertson, one of the contributors to this book (see Chapter VI).

In the weeks and months after my father entered into immortality on December 19, 1992, my mother and I spent many hours sorting through his papers and his extensive library so that we could donate them to churches he had served, seminaries and the Arthur J. Moore Museum on St. Simons Island, Georgia. We knew that Daddy would want others to benefit from them. One day I was delighted to rediscover this book, I Heard The Call To Preach, 46 years after its publication! I was acquainted with all seven of the other men in the book- however, four of them were very close friends of my father’s: Dr.

Anthony Hearn, (the minister who originally compiled this book and who served as a Mentor to these eight ministers), Dr. Jason Shirah, Rev. Jim Webb and Dr. Tom Whiting. Their friendship with Daddy extended all the way back to college and seminary days, in some cases, and all four of them served the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church faithfully for many decades together.Now, almost 70 years after these men of God shared their stories of how God called them to preach the Gospel, I feel that it is important to share their stories with new generations.

Why? Because, despite the passage of time, some things never change. As human beings, we all struggle with career choices and we struggle to make the right decisions, sometimes even “fighting” God’s will in the process.
