This Is My Story is an unusually fascinating account of one man's life.
·It is a story of the making of a man, initially written with grandchildren in mind--"Who was my grandfather? What kind of person was he?"
·At another level it is a story of a growing faith, telling how amidst the ups and down of life he has remained a "soft-hearted" pilgrim.
·At yet another level it is a story of the making of a leader who never stopped learning how to lead, care, preach, and engage in effective mission.
·Perhaps even more significantly, it is also a story of a ministry, in which the author never lost his sense of delight and privilege in his calling to be a pastor.
·Finally, as one who has at time been at the center of controversy, it is an opportunity to tell "my side of the story."
This is a book for pastors--and for any Christian--who wants the "inside story" of the pains and triumphs of a Christian leader.
