TWICE A SLAVE

TWICE A SLAVE
$15.00
New/Used: New
Twice a Slave is the story of a Cherokee slave, a forbidden romance, and tragedies that build faith. One man who is determined to find his purpose and discover his identity becomes a slave a second time, and he changes the course of history in Louisiana. It would come as a surprise to the often race-tested churches of the deep-south that the man most responsible for planting Baptists west of the Mississippi River was of mixed race. Joseph Willis is one of the most fascinating, yet unknown personalities in Evangelical history. He was born into slavery before the American Revolution, the son of a Cherokee mother and an English father who faced incredible difficulties. His story is timeless and inspires the modern heart to overcome insecurities, conquer prejudice between believers, and insurmountable obstacles that unsettle the faithful. Even though Joseph's life was threatened because of his race and faith, he became the first Protestant to preach the gospel west of the Mississippi River and started the first Baptist church west of the Mississippi. This is a novel about an unknown slave filled with drama, suspense, love, defeat, and ultimately triumph, an epic all can cheer for.
