Description
Dodo Collections brings you another classic from Bell Wright Harold, ' The Calling of Dan Matthews .'   Wright was motivated to leave the ministry because he realized he could make more money writing fiction. In most of his novels, he attacked the hypocrisy and impractical nature of popular churches. To Wright, hard work, integrity and concrete efforts to aid people in need were far more important than church doctrines or sermons.   In 1909, pastors across America were incensed by his third book,  The Calling of Dan Matthews , which told the story of a young preacher who, like Wright, resigned from the ministry in order to retain his integrity. The story included the town of Corinth, which was obviously that of Lebanon, Missouri. Several townspeople from Lebanon were highly disappointed in the novel and called it disgraceful.   Harold Bell Wright was a best selling American author of the first part of the 20th century.   Between 1903 and 1942, this minister-turned-author wrote nineteen books, several scripts for stage plays, and several magazine articles. At least fifteen movies were made from his novels. Seven of Wright's books appeared on the top ten best sellers lists, two of them twice, including a number one seller in 1914, a number two in 1916 and a third best seller three times.   He's best known for his work entitled The Shepherd of the Hills which was made into the well known, outdoor play, of the same name, performed in Branson, Mo.
