At Council this year, I purchased A.B.: The Unlikely Founder of a Global Movement, by David Jones. I started reading it by the pool in Orlando and had almost finished it by the time the plane landed back in Sacramento. It is worth reading for those of us in the CM&A family.
In my thirty-nine years as an Alliance pastor, I have heard all kinds of anecdotes about A.B. Simpson. I never really felt like I had a handle on the “real” Simpson. This book took me closer than I have ever been to knowing him. It also helps the reader to grasp the theology behind the movement that is as relevant today as it was in Simpson’s day.
I hope you will find time to begin to check it out next time you are sitting by a pool, riding in a plane, or sitting in your study!
This freshly minted A. B.: The Unlikely Founder of a Global Movement not only gives us a glimpse into one man’s remarkable transformation of mind, body, and soul but also reminds us that the same loving Father longs to do the same in us—to shape us into exactly who He made us to be and prepare us for the unique work He’s called each of us to do.
All proceeds from the sale of A. B. support the Great Commission Fund, which helps extend the reach of the gospel among those who have yet to hear about Jesus and His message of hope, salvation, and grace.
