A Call to Compassion is your personal invitation to discover the joy of committing your life to a cause higher than your own personal desires and learn to be a reflection of God's steadfast love. Be inspired by the stories of these eleven great women:
- Catherine Booth, cofounder of the Salvation Army
- Nancy Ward, hero and "last beloved lady" of the Cherokee Nation
- Florence Nightingale, reformer and pioneer of health care and a well-trained nursing profession
- Gladys Aylward, missionary to the sick, orphans, and poor in China
- Mother Teresa, devoted servant to the poor in Calcutta, India, and the world

"A Call to Compassion is a book about a journey to which all of us have been called. It will no doubt help men and women alike, as Michal Ann and James have brought wonderful insights, moving personal testimonies, and stories about our heroes of the faith who embraced the same journey. This priceless couple has once again brought us a gem that will help us come into the fullness of Christ."
––Bill Johnson, Author of When Heaven Invades Earth and other books
"I have personally known the Golls for years, and I had the honor of commissioning them as apostolic prophets within our HIM global network. Sue and I cherish our years with them as a couple and cheer James on as he continues to carry the Kingdom message of Jesus around the world. Together they birthed a fresh movement, now stewarded by others, called Women on the Frontlines. I applaud their work together and the distinct lineage and legacy of Michal Ann's life message as expressed in Compassion Acts."
—Dr. Che Ahn, Founder of HRock Church and Harvest International Ministries, Chancellor of the Wagner Leadership Institute
"A Call to Compassion, along with the other books in the Women on the Frontlines series, is full of encouragement, exhortation, and compassion for women who are struggling to become the women of destiny God has created them to be. Michal Ann poured out her heart in a vulnerable, even tender way to her fellow sisters in Christ. It is almost as if she is God's cheerleader for the reader even to this day, exhorting them, "Go on, Sister, you can do it!" It is my honor, along with my husband, Mike, to continue to walk with James now that Michal Ann has graduated to her heavenly reward. So, come on now, pick up the baton! Let love take action in your life and make a difference for Jesus Christ's sake!"
—Cindy Jacobs, Generals International, Red Oak, Texas
"We loved our years ministering together with Michal Ann and James Goll. Their writings have impacted the global body of Christ. Beautifully, they have called us to take courage, dwell in the secret place, and to let compassionate love take action. These many anecdotes and examples from both the past and the present from those who made a difference in this life call us to follow in their footsteps. Michal Ann used to exhort us to have our own Hall of Heroes. As you read these Women on the Frontlines books, I am sure she will be added to yours. Now it is our turn to answer the call of the Holy Spirit and volunteer freely in the day of His power. Above all, like Michal Ann, let love have the final say."
—Wesley and Stacey Campbell, Revival Now! Ministries, Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada
"I have personally had the honor of knowing James and the late Michal Ann Goll for more than forty years. They served with me in Kansas City for over a decade in various capacities, always demonstrating a lavish love for Jesus. I commend to you these vintage writings in this Women on the Frontlines series of books. The Golls are among those who long to see Jesus receive the rewards for His suffering. I give a hearty amen to Michal Ann's lineage and legacy of her ministry and the teachings found in these books."
—Mike Bickle, Founder of the IHOP-KC, Author of Passion for Jesus and many other books
