Manley Beasley: Man of Faith - Instrument of Revival is the story of not just a man but of his message--a timeless message for every generation--a message greatly needed in our day. On these pages are found the biblical principles of faith and of how to deal with adversity. From intensive care units to the pulpits of America and beyond, Brother Manley, as he was known to the thousands of lives he touched, goes on living through the testimonies and teachings found in this book that some are saying is destined to become a classic.
Manley Beasley was a remarkable and powerful Southern Baptist evangelist who struggled for his last two decades of life with the pain and debilitation of multiple fatal illnesses. Throughout the difficulties, Beasley maintained his faith and said God was using his weaknesses for His greater glory. Beasley died in 1990 at age 58.
Beasley's friend and colleague, Ron Owens, writes about Beasley from the perspective of one who watched him up close, knew his innermost struggles, and admired him greatly. The book offers excellent insight on where is God when a Christian suffers and what are the purposes of Christian suffering. The book utilities numerous personal testimonies from Beasley's friends and family members as well as his own words spoken in sermons, personal conversations, and interviews.
Author Ron Owens has multi-faceted ministries. These include teaching, preaching, and music ministry primarily in North America and Eastern and Western Europe. He has composed, recorded, and had published many songs in collaboration with his wife, Patricia. View the book's website at www.beasleybiography.com and the Owens' website at www.owensministries.org.
