A Billy Graham Library Selection, this book tells us that "God calls the church to overcome racism in the world. God called Howard Jones to overcome racism in the church."

Particularly relevant to the 2008 Presidential race because Howard Jones might be considered a "trailblazer" for those who came after. Christianity Today calls Howard Jones the "Jackie Robinson of Evangelism." He experienced early challenges in a white Bible school, yet went on to triumph as the first black evangelist to conduct (Billy Graham) Crusades in Africa.

Jones is an authentic model of what it means to be not just an African-American leader, and also a man who understands the absolute necissity of following God's call wherever it leads.
