The name of Derek Prince would be familiar to many Christians around the world. Many of us will have benefited from his Bible-based teaching as a pastor, writer, and broadcaster over the years.

Beginning with Prince’s birth in India in 1915, Derek Prince - A Biography follows his life for the next 87 years until he died in his sleep in Jerusalem in 2003.

The obvious rapport built up between author and subject has resulted in this God-breathed book that gives a moving insight into this man’s walk

Well written story of my favorite Bible teacher. I loved the honesty of Derek's rough times, his reflection of mistakes made and the wonderful way God worked in his life. I don't necessarily agree with some of Derek's doctrine but his love of The Lord and scripture is evident in everything he teaches. I have grown so much in my spiritual life listening to his podcasts on my way to work every day.

Fascinating story of a remarkable man. The author does a great job telling the unusual story of Derek marrying a woman 20 years older than well as completing the story. He never leaves you hanging. Kudos to the author.

Some fascinating insights into the life and ministry of Derek Prince. Some of the exchanges between Stephen Mansfield and Derek are engaging and highlight Derek's wit and quick mind. Listening to or watching his talks reveals a dry sense of humour.

A very unusual and strange tale...its amazing that this is non-fiction...indeed God has different paths for all of us ..we are fearfully and carefully constructed to please Him in His own predetermined way. Very well written and easy to wont drop this book until you finish reading.

A well written and easy to read book. His time spent in Israel (he was there at creation of Jewish state) and his love of Israel are of particular interest. The book was produced by dp ministries after his death but it is a warts and all account of his life
