Burlington, KY (PRWEB) August 03, 2013
In "The Lord Is Not Through with Me Yet: The Story of Dr. John W. Rawlings" (published by CrossBooks), author Kaitlyn O. Rawlings’ new biography, readers are invited to experience the life and times of the author’s great grandfather.
Hailed as one of 20th century’s best Baptist preachers, Dr. John W. Rawlings rose from a humble beginning in the foothills of the Ozarks near the Mississippi to lead a nation of believers for over two decades. Rawlings takes readers through these simple beginnings and shows, through detailed accounts, how Dr. John was able to use his love of the Lord to begin his own journey towards the light. With heartwarming and often humorous stories peppered throughout, this historic biography will not only help readers see Dr. John’s significant contributions to the founding of the Baptist Bible Fellowship, International Baptist Network and multiple youth camps and colleges around the world, it will also leave them immersed in a story that transcends time: a story about God’s love and how he works though his servants.
Praise for "The Lord Is Not Through with Me Yet" from Jerry Falwell, Chancellor, Liberty University
Thomas Road Baptist Church, Lynchburg, Va.:
"Dr. Rawlings has been my mentor for forty-eight years. He taught me the sanctity of the local church and the centrality of the local church in the enterprise of world evangelization. He is the greatest visionary I know. He has always been ahead of his peers. He is a man of great wisdom. He is an obsessive reader. He is unbelievably progressive without ever compromising truth and principle. Humanly, I owe him more for the success of my own ministry than any other mortal."
