Editorial Reviews

"In this short biography, Davis presents presbyterian Church in America pastor D. James Kennedy as man of conviction, determined to overcome adversity and to excel. With warmth and humour, she successfully blends the highlights of his personal life and ministry.
It is an unassailable fact that Dr. D. James Kennedy through the ministry of Evangelism Explosion has done as much or more than any individual in the last 40 to 50 years to, not only promote evangelism but, provide an avenue to train every day Christians to participate in the joy of leading men and women to Christ.
More than anybody I know, Dr. D. James Kennedy epitomizes evangelism and the sovereignty of God in his ministry. His influence on me has been profound. This well-written biography provides a history, wonderful anecdotes and insights into one of America's most powerful Christian leaders of our generation.

    This book was a very insightful and interesting read. I couldn't put it down. What struck me the most was Dr. Kennedy's passion for soul winning. He made it a way of life, a regular part of his language, and then trained others to do and live the same. Every Pastor should read this book and see what principles they could bring into their own congregations.
