Grace Upon Grace: Nine Decades of Stories from a Farm Boy, Midshipman, Officer, and Evangelist

Without Jim Wilson, Doug Wilson, and certainly Canon Press, would not exist.

Jim Wilson was born in 1927 and raised in a Depression-era farming family. When he was sixteen, at the height of World War II, Jim became the primary breadwinner for his parents and four younger siblings. At age seventeen, eager to fight for his country, he enlisted in the Navy. Germany surrendered while he was in the recruiting office, and the war was over by the time he entered boot camp. But God had a plan for Jim Wilson in the U.S. Navy. Through adventures of sickness, poverty, hard work, and war, this is the story of God's provision and protection in the life of one Nebraska farm boy turned ardent evangelist. 

N.D. Wilson, grandson, author of the 100 Cupboards and Ashtown Burials series:
"
My Grandfather has been telling fantastic stories for as long as I can remember, and living them for far longer than that. His influence is a huge contributor to my own career as a story teller, and I’m incredibly grateful—for myself and my kids—that he found the energy to compile his life story in book form. Just one caution: don’t go thinking he’s a reliable narrator. He isn’t. He undersells himself constantly, but only because his eyes are so firmly locked on the true Author, the One who wrote every one of these Jim Wilson stories while the concrete for time’s foundation was still wet and churning in the trucks."

John Knubel, Lt. Cdr. USN Retired, Naval Academy Class of ’62 says: "For sixty years, Jim helped me apply my Christian faith to life—not through eloquence, power, or wealth but through a demonstrated commitment pointing the way to life’s Source. This is the story of an American life well lived." 

 

Principles of War: A Handbook on Strategic Evangelism

Evangelism is a battle. Fight to win.

In the study of warfare, great men have concluded that there are some overriding principles which, if followed, will always tend toward success in battle, and if neglected or ignored, will tend toward defeat or even destruction. These principles have been entitled the "principles of war."

But not all warfare is waged on a battlefield: every Christian is called to be a soldier. Our fight is against Satan, our objective is the acknowledgment and fulfillment of God's commands, and our ammunition is the power of the Holy Spirit.

In Principles of War, longtime evangelist and preacher Jim Wilson outlines the time-tried, fundamental principles of war and explains how we can employ them in our daily spiritual battles as we fight a war which our commander in chief has already won for us.

 

Douglas Wilson, son and pastor:
"One of those books that I've resolved to be reading and rereading and rereading. It really is a classic and deserves to be." 
 

At the Edge of the Village

What is it like being a missionary in Africa? Danger, joy, love, and lots of laughter.

A missionary's life is not just danger, hard work, and culture shock, interspersed with moments of high joys and deep sorrows. In this book consisting of both narrative and letters to her church, Lisa Leidenfrost shows that it also consists of the small, daily things, the quotidian experience which makes life at the edge of a village as familiar as life in America. This book features the ordinary and extraordinary, the solemn and playful, the mundane and exotic—all coming together to create a down-to-earth portrait of the Gospel at work in a family and a society.

"Step into our world, a place of laughter and tears, trials and hopes, events captured and stories told. They are stories of life, lived out on the mission field in Africa where the hand of God is ever present in every situation. They are stories of daily events, of cultural experiences recounted, of friends loved and lost, and of trials surmounted. They are stories of bothersome situations turned to laughter as God gives us the ability to find humor in various hardships—a humor that has kept us sane over all these years. They are mostly stories of the familiar things in life, the little things that lend spice to our daily experience.

Not all of missionary life is extraordinary or bizarre. Most of it is just normal, common events that unfold one day into another. And because God is good, there is a beauty in living, a purpose beyond our own mere existence that can make even the smallest things we do burst with life and meaning, laughter and delight. Too often these small, commonplace things go unnoticed unless they are caught and brought to life in words, words which become a lens that can, even if for a single moment, bring this ever-present beauty into focus." -From the book

A Christian in need of a bigger vision of God, Kathryn Simpson:

This was a very encouraging and delightful book. Filled with so many gems of funny stories and deeper wisdom in the tedious journey of translating the Bible. It was an easy read and good for a time like this to be reminded of a bigger world, a bigger God, bigger problems than my own, and a bigger perspective than my small world.

A fellow believer in the wide tapestry of God's story, Sarah Crupi: A peek at a different life. I enjoyed getting to hear about fellow believers living a very different life in another part of the world. The story is entertaining in and of itself and also encouraging as it connects to another part of the church's story that God is weaving in this part of history.
