Abstract:

John Perkins has long been recognized by those in community development as one of the great African American leaders of our time, but there has never been a comprehensive account of his life and ministry - until now. Writing as both friend and historian, Stephen Berk presents a richly detailed narrative of the central people and events that have shaped Perkins's life. Based largely on oral history and extensive interviews, Berk's personal and moving account reveals a multifaceted man who founded several successful ministries and who profoundly influenced both American evangelicalism and the civil rights movement.

Perhaps more than any other African American leader of his generation, Perkins has been able to cross racial boundaries and draw support from traditionally conservative, white evangelicals who might not have otherwise committed themselves to programs of social reform. As an internationally known speaker and author, John Perkins has helped people everywhere face their own attitudes about race and the ramifications of social injustice.
