While autobiographical, this was mainly a narrative of incidents throughout his early years of ministry and evangelism.

In many regards it was fragmented and jumped from story to story to exhortation and so on.

However, the fragmentation of the book did not take away from the power of the stories and the truth that was presented. I found myself intrigued and encouraged by the stories. Many years ago when Dr. Rutland was the president of Southeastern University, I heard him give his testimony which is included in the first part of this book. It was powerful then. I heard him speak at many chapel services, but his testimony was powerful. Having heard him speak gave life to the stories within his book.

This book had some great stories about patience, the work of the Holy Spirit, and Dr. Rutland's adventures around the globe, however midway through the book it becomes very difficult to keep a running interest to finish. Also, due to the era when he was writing, many of his statements come as a shock (as they are not socially appropriate anymore). There are many positive elements to this book, but it does not land itself on my list of highly recommended reads.

This is the powerful and candid autobiography of Dr. Mark Rutland, one of the greatest influences and people I have mentored under in my Christian life.
