We all have our different stories to tell, and we all have real-life testimonies to share. Pastor Rodney Bankens' debut, Sufficient Grace When Your Life Is in the Sewer: Messages About Life and Living (paperback, 978-1-60477-734-5), is a testimony containing all the messages and stories the minister has preached throughout the USA and Canada. Everything in the book has been lived and experienced by the writer and his family, and all the stories are true, although some names have been changed slightly to protect the identity of those involved.
Says the Louisiana native, "The majority of the people who will read this book will be able to relate to these messages and stories. I would like every reader to understand no matter where life brings them, God is there with them and they must continue living for God through every phase of life."
Bankens did not begin preaching until the age of 42, after which he preached in hundreds of churches all over the USA and pastored two of his own. He says these experiences were what equipped him to dedicate his life to the call of God. "I have been involved in dealing with people most of my adult life," he says. "I understand struggles, and I understand success; I understand how it is when an individual does not live for God with all their heart, and I also understand what it means to fully dedicate one's life to the call of God."
