McGowan's Call is a collection of short stories and a novella that
chronicles Davis' path from the river town of Hatteras, Ohio to the
suburbs of Dayton. This work of fiction provides a rare insight to
pastoral ministry outside the scandals that regularly make
headlines. It is an honest expos of the real crisis that afflicts
those who live in the public eye. Here is what was said of
McGowan's Call in Heartlands Magazine: "The stories take us through
Davis McGowan's years of ministry and his struggles and rewards in
dealing with parishioners' illnesses, aging, deaths, doubts, and
even a homicide in the suspenseful novella "False Witness." One
could compare the book to Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio
collection of Midwest portraits from a small town; only these are
contemporary tales. A wide variety of townsfolk are shown, but the
focus is squarely on McGowan as he matures into his job." -Larry
