Steal Away Home by Aaron Ivey & Matt Carter
Happy Hour Book Club - August 2017
Thomas Johnson and Charles Spurgeon lived worlds apart.
Johnson, an American slave, born into captivity and longing for freedom--Spurgeon, an Englishman born into relative ease and comfort, but, longing too for a freedom of his own. Their respective journeys lead to an unlikely meeting and an even more unlikely friendship, forged by fate and mutual love for the mission of Christ.
Steal Away Home is a new kind of book based on historical research, tells a previously untold story set in the 1800's of the relationship between an African-American missionary and one of the greatest preachers to ever live.
Authors Matt Carter and Aaron Ivey tell a compelling story in a fresh, new way about one of Christianity's most famed ministers. Readers will discover, perhaps for the first time, Spurgeon was merely one among many in a court of London preachers.
