Product description

Review

"This account gives us valuable insight into the life of a man who accepted the challenges of ministry with both integrity and grace, and into the life of a Protestant pastor in French Quebec. A powerful reminder that there are no little places if we are faithful to the God who called us."
Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor, The Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois

"How can the application of a Bible-saturated mind (Don's) to a Bible-saturated life (Tom's) produce an even more helpful story to encourage pastors? Let the 'mind' be carried on a river of love because the 'life' is his father's. Then add a kind of narrative creativity. That's how."
John Piper, Founder, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary

"A rare and precious gift from one of evangelicalism's greatest scholars. How generous of Dr. Carson to bequeath his father's quiet legacy to us all."
C.J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville

"Carson strikes at the heart of what's wrong when we forget that, as servants, we were meant to live ordinarily under the gospel of grace. Read this book. You will be deeply encouraged in your life and ministry."
Michel Lemaire, Pastor of Eglise Baptiste de la Foi, Drummondville, 1984-2005

"This personal testimony is a healthy reminder of heavenly priorities in the pastorate and Christian ministry."
Pierre Constant, Associate Pastor, Eglise Baptiste Montclair de Hull, 1982-1997

"Read this book and be strengthened. You hold in your hands history, humor, and an amazing amount of wisdom for the Christian life (especially for pastors!)."
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; President, 9Marks
