World-changers do not appear out of a vacuum. They follow the path lit by those who walk before them. E. Stanley Jones was a man who spent his life lighting the path. A missionary evangelist to India, Jones became friends with Mahatma Gandhi. Upon the assassination of Gandhi, Jones penned biography on his life. It is this biography that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr credited with having inspired his non-violent resistance philosophy that would change the course of United States history, placing E. Stanley Jones as the link between these 20th century world-changers.
E. Stanley Jones lived in and wrote for a complicated time. The 20th century saw not only the death, destruction, and horror of wars but also saw good resisting evil and the dignity of people standing together. In these complicated times of our own, these words still resonate with today. Perhaps these words can once again light the path for the world-changers of the 21st century.
Abingdon Press is releasing a new compilation of E. Stanley Jones writings. Beginning with Christ: Timeless Wisdom for Complicated Times features selections from Jones's writings complied by his granddaughter Anne Mathews-Younes. With a foreword from Adam Hamilton, this book offers you the companionship of the man who shared the table of fellowship with Gandhi and inspired world-changers such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Billy Graham. This collection is timely because these reflections are timeless.
Beginning with Christ offers you the opportunity to discover these writings for the first time or sit again at the feet of E. Stanley Jones.
