Editorial Reviews

Review

H. Beecher Hicks Jr. knows that great preaching and great storytelling go hand in hand. He believes in the power of imagination to teach us about God and about life, and he knows that nothing can spark the imagination like a story well told. In My Soul’s Been Anchored, he presents vivid portrayals of the biblical truth shining through people he has known and experiences he has had.

Family, friends, church members, neighbors . . . well-loved faces peer from these pages. In their warm humanity they illustrate simple, profound lessons that touch us all. You’ll meet “Uncle Mugga,” a woman poor in money but rich in love for neighborhood children. Reverend Jones, whose dentures flew out over the pulpit in mid-prayer. Mother Jackson, everybody’s mother at Second Baptist Church. Wilson McCray, who ran his shoes off praising God. Each person is a unique, creative snapshot—sometimes funny, sometimes poignant—of a living faith that helps us overcome obstacles, love God and each other more effectively, and make this world a better place.

Dr. Hicks’ stories read the way his sermons preach—full of life, feeling, and beauty. My Soul’s Been Anchored captures in print the oral tradition of the great African-American preachers—the cadences, the rhythms, the passion, the urgency.

And the vision. Dr. Hicks says, “This is a time to rise above our limitations and set our sights on those things that the world believes are beyond us.” Weaving his stories around the broad topics of beginnings, the faith, the church, and death and life, he encourages us to reach for purpose. Put your faith in motion, he urges. Never give up on your potential or God’s promises.

“I wonder if God wonders,” says Dr. Hicks. “I wonder if God dreams. . . . I wonder what the imagination of God must be!” My Soul’s Been Anchored will help you explore God’s imagination and your own. Here is storytelling at it finest from a gifted African-American writer and preacher, with universal truths that speak to every culture. Read, enjoy . . . and grow from the wisdom of these gentle and passionate narratives by H. Beecher Hicks Jr -- Publisher

From the Publisher

For those who can't go hear H. Beecher Hicks Jr. preach on Sunday, My Soul's Been Anchored serves up a veritable repast of soul food and spiritual common sense from this gifted storyteller. With power and poignancy, Dr. Hicks shares moving and inspiring accounts of growing up in Louisiana, of people who influenced his life and spiritual growth, of experiences in ministry and in his travels. His pride in his African-American heritage shines through heartfelt lessons that fire the imagination and the spirit. My Soul's Been Anchored captures in print the oral tradition of the great African-American preachers--the cadences, the rhythms, the passion, the urgency. And the vision. Dr. Hicks says, This is a time to rise above our limitations and set our sights on those things that the world believes are beyond us. Featuring a foreword by Maya Angelou, critically acclaimed African-American author and poet, My Soul's Been Anchored is great preaching in print, calling us to make a difference in the world today.

In the continuing excellence of Dr.Hicks' contributions to the cause of Christ, this is yet another expression of inspiration and encouragement to parishioners and pastors. Every church library should have it,(as well as the other Hicks offerings) on the shelf and on their lips so they can tell their children! The same Bridge that brought Hicks over, is the same one that will carry us through. Each challenge we encounter is but another opportunity to Sing! **another Hicks quote from (Hamel & Prahalad's)Competing for the Future - Destiny is no matter of chance, it is a matter of choice: It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved...we CAN achieve much! Look where He brought us from!
Dr. Hicks' ministry has blessed the Louisville, Kentucky area for many years and we thank him for allowing God to use him for His glory!

As with all of his books, and his ministry, Dr. Hicks was a blessing. I find him to be without peer as far as preaching and writing. He is a true inspiration to the faith community. Oh that I could "sit at his feet." The book was inspirational.
