For over 40 years, Dr. Stanley's preaching has attempted to move a complex, sophisticated community beyond the 'kindergarten' Christianity of its childhood to a powerful, relevant gospel that reconciles their complex lives while affirming the simple truth that in spite of all of our shortcomings, we are all God~ beloved children. This volume illuminates a life and ministry obedient to a worthy call.- Ambassador Andrew Young, Civil Rights leader/ministerlhumanitarian, Atlanta, Georgia

One Sunday morning, Dr. Stanley preached a sermon that so illuminated an aspect of my life~ journey I wrote one of my strongest musical compositions. On the Sunday after Coretta Scott King died, through his teaching and preaching, he showed us a woman with a deep moving spirit and commitment to justice. I was able to cry again as we closed the service singing the spiritual, "There is a Balm in Gilead." I have continually found inspiration and hope in his words. May you also find water in your dry times from this well. — Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, singer/composer/cultural historian, Washington, DC
