From the Hood to the Hill / Black, Barry C / (HB/2006-2006/A/USED)



*Condition Note: Like new with dust jacket in place.*


A story of beating the odds and keeping the faith.
Barry Black credits his strong spiritual beginnings to his mother's prayer at her baptism when she asked God to bless the child within her. Using vignettes and illustrations from family, education, religion, the military, and politics, Black presents a determined and unyielding faith in his Creator. His confidence in God's control of life led not only to amazing achievement but also to abiding peace when things don't work out as planned.
-Shows with frankness and insight how you can find blessings in affliction, harness the power of prayer, and learn to lead.
-Demonstrates how confidence in God's control can lead to abiding peace - even when things don't work out as planned.
-Written by Barry C. Black, the first person of color in the nation's history to serve as chaplain of the U.S. Senate.
