Item description for Clarence Jones: Mr. Radio (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) by Janet Benge & Geoff Benge...
Overview A NEW STANDARD HAS BEEN SET IN CHRISTIAN BIOGRAPHY! Each inspiring true story of a man or woman who answered God's call is a testimony to a real-life adventure of faith and determination. Returning to Radio HCJB, Clarence (1900-1986) brought up the rear as the men rode in the dark along the narrow horse trail carved from the mountainside. Suddenly Clarence's horse stumbled and slid over the trail's edge, taking him with it. As horse and rider fell toward the canyon floor one thousand feet below, Clarence was not even able to scream. Although born into a devout Christian family, Clarence Jones wasn't interested in religion. It was this Midwesterner's ear for music that led him to play trombone at Chicago's Moody Church, where he gave his life to Christ and volunteered for mission work. Clarence's work began in Chicago, where he helped pioneer something unheard of-Christian radio broadcasts. Soon God called Clarence to "go south with radio." Led to Ecuador, Clarence worked unswervingly to cofound Radio HCJB and the World Radio Missionary Fellowship. His legacy of broadcasting the gospel to the ends of the earth soars on the airwaves today. This best-selling, missionary biography series - Christian Heroes: Then & Now - chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory.

Addiction Alert: My children won't put these books down! Apr 5, 2008
This series of books is captivating! I enjoy them every bit as much as my children do. Even my nearly 14-year old son cannot put them down! We own about 4 of them now - but my children have requested the entire series. Little-by-little, hopefully we can do that for them!
The books are exciting, moving, and are great faith-builders. The missionaries featured become heroes in the eyes of my children. I cannot recommend this series high enough. Hope you'll give it a try!
