This book was revolutionary in aiding me in my Christian growth and is a must read! Tom Skinner's life declares the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as he describes first hand how Christ changed him from a gang leader to Evangelist. As a contemporary of Billy Graham, his ministry reached Black urban America with an astounding impact. This book has been out of print for a while, so if you can find one available, purchase it.
Tom has gone to be with the Lord, but his work and the lives he touched is still evident. Words can not say enough about this man and most of all the Lord he served!
Wonderfully written Aug 30, 1999
I read this book and loved it. It not only tells about the oppression suffered by black males, but it gives hope and shows a path free from despair.
This was a great book!
Answers how he was "black and free" in the late 60's Jan 20, 1999
I did not read this book, but I read an excerpt from this classic 1968 autobiography in the January/February 1999 issue of New Man magazine by Strang Communications. Mr. Skinner grew up in Harlem, as a leader of a street gang, but when he heard the gospel of Jesus Christ, he went on to become an urban evangelist. His wisdom shown in this little excerpt convicted me. He knew who he was. He did not need all of society to accept him. He knew where his relationship with Jesus Christ placed him - as an heir to God! He is now with the Lord, and I bet he's getting more respect now than any man ever had during his/her life on Earth.
