Format: Hardcover
"Thy Will Be Done" is an enjoyable and enlightening read of the Reverand George Truett, longtime pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas in the early 1900s. My interest was sparked by a couple of past sales jobs that required traveling in Western North Carolina, Truett's birthplace. I remember several times driving past his birthplace and one time made a brief visit.

Among the areas covered include:

1. Truett's early life in Western North Carolina and eventual move to Dallas TX.
2. Raising money for Baylor University.
3. Longtime pastorate at First Baptist of Dallas.
4. Involvement in various organizations such as the Baptist World Alliance.
5. Participation in several revivals.
6. Involvement in World War I as a chaplain.
7. Happy home life in spite of his frequent absence.
8. Reflections of the people he loved and who loved him (different races, faiths, and economic backgrounds).
9. Relationships with the rich and famous and the plain and ordinary people of his day.
10. Final illness.

Indeed, Truett was quite a preacher who refused to compromise the truth of the Gospel and yet loved people for who they were.

The book was highly readable and the narrative flowed smoothly.

Read, enjoy, and learn about one of America's greatest preachers!
