I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Book Review: The Man Who Moved A Mountain

The following is a repost of a book review by Kathy on Kathy's Blog "

Moonshine stills, gun slinging, a '34 Chevy with a jersey cow in the back seat . . . The pages of The Man Who Moved a Mountain are filled with one man's true adventures living and ministering in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia during the first half of the 20th century. This is an entertaining, thought-provoking, easy to read, and inspiring story of the difference one man can make when he is completely sold out to God's leading in his life.

First published in 1970 and reprinted many times, this book is endearing to those who are familiar with the Southern Virginia mountains, those who enjoy history and the local color of isolated regions of America, those who enjoy testimonies of God's power at work around us, those who, like me, are actually related to the this mountain-moving man (Bob Childress was my great great uncle), and those who just enjoy great story-telling. I just finished reading it for the second time!
