Along the way, through God’s providence, a subject and an author come together as a perfect match. E. Stanley Jones was an is one of God’s great gifts to the world. We are only now beginning to grasp how significant his witness was and is – deeply Christ-centered and yet profoundly open to the world; I his words, “anchored and free.” Bob Tuttle is an evangelist and scholar of the highest order.
