Item description for The Gospel According to Rev. Walt "Baby" Love: Inspirations and Meditations from the Gospel Radio Legend by Walt Baby Love...
Overview For more than three decades, Walt "Baby" Love has touched the lives of more than ten million listeners across the world. Every week he shares his triumphs, challenges, and soul-stirring moments through his award-winning radio programs. He has built a following of millions of listeners and repeatedly shattered racial barriers as a black man in an industry long dominated by whites. Yet this former army paratrooper with the famed 82nd Airborne Division, who served in Southeast Asia, also broke ground as a man of disciplined, abiding faith who refused to bow to corrupt influences. His enormously popular syndicated rhythm-and-blues show lost its spot on a Chicago radio station because Walt would not refrain from counseling his listeners to look to Jesus. Though beloved by his devoted listeners, Walt was often treated as an outcast by other African-American broadcasters and industry executives because of his outspoken and steadfast devotion to the Christian way of life. Still, both earthly and heavenly rewards have come in great abundance to the man raised by his great-grandparents in rural Pennsylvania. In The Gospel According to Rev. Walt "Baby" Love he offers reflections and inspirational thoughts drawn from his life. He shares how his religious convictions helped him survive and thrive in an industry he believed to be rife with corruption and ungodly influences. And he recounts the story of his progression of faith from a player of gospel and R&B music to an ordained minister and preacher of God's Word. Each chapter focuses on a Bible verse, reflecting on its significance to him and guiding you on how to incorporate its teachings into your own daily life. An uplifting story of faith, family, and forgiveness in the face of God's plan, The Gospel According to Rev. Walt "Baby" Love is inspirational reading at its best.

Spiritual Love Jul 28, 2007
Reading the testimony of one person who has traveled a road he never expected is very inspirational. THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO REV. WALT "BABY" LOVE is a great book for everyone to enjoy and acknowledge their own testimony of how God has blessed them.
Rev. Walt never expected that one day he would be teaching God's Word. The book covers his life as a young boy and the Biblical teachings he learned from his grandparents. It continues into his time spent in the service as a paratrooper, sharing his brush with death, while jumping out of a plane when his chute got tangled. He landed safely, with minor injuries, and knew his faith and trust in God saved his life.
After the service, he went on to become a celebrated radio host and has been instrumental in bringing good music and wonderful words of faith and encouragement to his radio listeners. However, his career didn't stop there, being a God-conscious person, he never waivered, but still couldn't imagine when his pastor told him years ago, he was destined to a higher calling. All the while he was pursuing his radio career, he was also being molded for the ministry. Today he is a minister at the First AME Church in Los Angeles.
I enjoyed THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO REV. WALT "BABY" LOVE and applaud Rev. Walt for sharing his life journey so others can learn and understand the insight to living a good life, strongly grounded in God. I also appreciated the Bible scriptures which gives spiritual credence to pursuing your dreams and allowing God to reveal your calling in life.
