This is an intensely personal and intimate portrait of the Baptist minister and journalist's lifetime efforts on behalf of social justice, religious liberty, and Christian morality, culminating in his service as the first executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee of Public Affairs in Washington, D.C. This book is the life story of a tenant farm boy who became a world leader in the cause of separation of church and state and religious liberty. He really wanted to be a newspaperman. "In a ravine back of the cotton field," Dawson writes in this richly human volume, "there came a showdown between preaching and writing." At the time, Dawson felt that preaching had won. He turned down a staff job at the Dallas News to enter Baylor University to study for the ministry. As it turned out, preaching and writing remained rivals for his time. This is his eleventh major volume. He is the author of hundreds of articles for the church and secular press. An advocate of separation of church and state, Dawson also fought for "absolute freedom" in the editorial office and the pulpit. Ever the bedrock of his dedication was his firm commitment to the "sacred cause of Christian education". He was a trustee of Baylor University for over thirty years.
