Stanley Jones, discover not only how God desires more for us than we could ever think or imagine, but freely gives us that abundant life of body, mind, and spirit.

Meet the Author

Each generation yields a few Christian leaders whose life commitment to Christ and spiritual gifts continue inspiring faith beyond their lifetimes. E. Stanley Jones (1884 1973) was such a person. As a widely known and universally admired Christian missionary and evangelist of the 20th Century, Jones spent 70 years traveling throughout the world. As an ecumenical leader and spokesperson for peace, racial reconciliation, and social justice, he was a constant witness for Jesus Christ. A confidant of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi, and an inspiration to Martin Luther King, Jr., and numerous other world leaders. He was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

In 1938, Time magazine called Jones “the world’s greatest missionary evangelist.” His approach to evangelism presented Christ as the universal Son of Man without the trappings of Western culture. His tireless effort in advancing the Gospel knew no bounds. He delivered tens of thousands of sermons and lectures, traveled 50 weeks a year, and often spoke two to six times a day. His message of the necessity of “surrender” to Jesus Christ and “Jesus is Lord” had a life-changing impact on the millions of people throughout the world who read his books or heard him speak.
