Elmer Towns is known around the world as cofounder of the world's largest Christian university and as author of more than 175 popular books on prayer, spirituality, and the church. His is also known as a motivator par excellence of men and women who long to be exceptional for the cause of Christ. But not many people know that a long "desert experience" lies behind Towns's extraordinary success, an experience that taught him how to be, in the words of the apostle Paul, "crucified with Christ" (Galatians 2:20). In these memoirs, one of the modern church's most influential teachers shares his fascinating life story, drawing out principles that can be applied by anyone seeking to become great in God's kingdom. Leaders and students alike will be challenged to greater faithfulness and encouraged to seek God more deeply.
