"He will be the preacher." Whether this was just an offhand remark or the woman leaning over his crib was speaking under inspiration from the Holy Spirit
, either way, her prediction came to pass.
This is the story of a shy, wisecrack kid from rural Canada becoming a well-known American preacher. It's a story of seemingly random events deciding one man's destiny. But most of all, it's a story of God leading one of His dear children along.
Join Erwin Lutzer on this tour of his life--from a Saskatchewan farm to a Dallas seminary to the historic Moody Church in Chicago. Hear his personal reflections and tales of pastoral hardship. Meet the people who have shaped him: his parents, professors, family, and even the great evangelist Billy Graham. And see how his many roles--author, speaker, evangelist, historian, and cultural critic--have carried his prophetic voice beyond Moody's pulpit, even abroad.
Part story and part reflection, full of heart with a dose of wit, He Will Be the Preacher is a personal and engaging witness to the providence of God.
