Regal Let Justice Roll Down

Here is the real-life story of the transforming power of Jesus Christ and one man's response to Jesus' call to love others.

John Perkins, founder of Voice of Calvary ministries, was born in New Hebron, Mississippi, in 1930. His family was made up of sharecroppers, and he grew up in grinding poverty, part of a system that preserved prejudice and racism. After his brother was killed, Perkins left Mississippi for California where he found job opportunities, racism of another kind, and faith in Jesus Christ.

He returned to Mississippi to share the gospel and help his own people find equality, justice, and economic independence through self-help cooperative efforts. And he made progress--too much progress.

Everything came to a head early in 1970 when John Perkins and others went through an unbelievable night of torture at the hands of white law enforcement officers. Beaten almost to death, Perkins somehow survived and so did his work, which moves ahead today.

This is one of the best book's I have ever read.A friend gave me a singed copy, its hard to tell people how it made me feel when I finished the book.The injustice he had to face and yet feel compassion for those people is a testament to his trust in Jesus Christ.

I think this book has stood the test of time. The 30th anniversary reprint is great. I think this is a book that was truly before its time. I love the 3 R's (Reconciliation, Relocation, and Redistribution). I love the postscript by his daughter, Elizabeth which tells us that the work of Christian Community development will continue for generations to come.
