When the quarterback gets to the line and sees how the defense is lined up, he may decide to change the game plan. This is called an “audible.”
The Preacher Calls an Audible, by Dr. Joanne Nelson King Brown, is about an Idaho cowboy turned preacher. It begins where her first book, I Swam with the Piranhas and Still Have My Toes, left off, with John returning from the mission field after a heart attack and being told his cholesterol would kill him in a very short time. The fire of evangelism burned brightly in him for seven more years as he called his “audibles” for his Lord.
This is an exciting account of a servant of God giving his life in the battle against evil. It will inspire you to do your best here on earth, in spite of hardship and pain.

Dr. Joanne Nelson King Brown was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington. Dr. Brown attended Northwest Christian College, Butler Seminary, Phillips University, Drew University, and the College of Languages in Costa Rica. She met and married her “Idaho cowboy turned preacher” while at Northwest Christian College. She and her husband both received their Doctor of Divinity degrees from the Universal Bible College in Texas just two weeks before he died of a massive heart attack. They had served as Disciples of Christ missionaries in Paraguay and her first book is about the exciting times in the jungle there: I Swam with the Piranhas and Still Have My Toes.
This book about John, the preacher, began on the night of the day he died. He died in 1975, leaving her to raise their three boys, one in grade school, one in junior high, and one in high school. Her eight single years are the topic of her next book, Fishing with Cinnamon Rolls.
The author is a sought-after exciting, and humorous speaker who knows God’s love and mercy personally.
