He was just a drifter, moving from town to town and helping out as a ranch hand at any ranch along his travels. Yet Eric Wall was a thoughtful man and was thinking deep thoughts about his purpose in life. What he learned when he entered one little country town would change his life in many ways, in the new Christian novel by author Chuck DeHaan The Makin' of a Cowboy Evangelist. A chance listen to a radio preacher encouraged Eric to find a "readable Bible" where he could learn about God, Jesus and the gospel. A sought-after cowboy knowledgeable about haltering colts, Eric soon found a place working at the Crafts' ranch and was invited to a cowboy church one day by the Crafts' daughter, Mary. What he heard at church led to his acceptance of Jesus and his life-changing pursuits of God and a calling as an evangelist.
