Item description for On the Tail of a Comet: The Life of Frank Buchman by Garth Lean...

This definitive biography of Frank Buchman starts with a small-town American who set out "to remake the world" and in the attempt affected the moral and spiritual condition of thousands of people at every level of society throughout the world. From the rise of black nationalist independence movements in Africa to the civil rights hotbed in the U.S., in the lives of great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Konrad Adenauer, and Harry Truman -- Buchman's remarkable influence kept turning up. Buchman was called "a man of genius" and an "apostle to the twentieth century" by Henry van Dusen in the "Atlantic Monthly." He was founder of the Oxford Group and Moral Re-Armament, and the man whose ideas provided the impetus behind many change-oriented initiatives such as Alcoholics Anonymous. Buchman's biographer, Garth Lean, was a British journalist and prolific author. He held a masters degree in jurisprudence from Oxford University, and was a lifelong student of history. Among his books is "God's Politician," a biographical study of William Wilberforce.

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Tail of a Comet: The Life of Frank Buchman?

through  Oct 20, 2000
I'm assuming that this is basically the same book as Frank Buchman: a life by the same author which is out of print. It's a very through and well researched book about the life of a remarkable man, gives one a different world view from the late twenties right up to the sixties and explains what a life of faith really means. Could have been a little more critical but still a very intresting book, not a typical christian read.
