D.A. Carson's father was a pioneering church-planter and pastor in Quebec. But still, an ordinary pastor - except that he ministered during the decades that brought French Canada from the brutal challenges of persecution and imprisonment for Baptist ministers to spectacular growth and revival in the 1970s.
Through Tom Carson's journals and written prayers, and the narrative and historical background supplied by his son, readers will be given a firsthand account of not only this difficult time in North American church history, but of one pastor's life, dreams and disappointments. This unique book serves to remind readers that though the sacrifices of serving God are great, the sweetness of living a faithful, obedient life is greater still.
"This account gives us valuable insight into the life of a man who accepted the challenges of ministry with both integrity and grace, and into the life of a Protestant pastor in French Quebec. A powerful reminder that there are no little places if we are faithful to the God who called us." - Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor, The Moody Church, Chicago
