Bob Shands

Bob Shands was raised in the home of a Southern Baptist minister in Atlanta, GA during the 1950’s. His father, Norman Shands, was a leader in the peaceful desegregation of the Atlanta public school system. The positions Norman Shands took were unpopular within the community, Baptist leadership in Georgia, and the church he served. In My Father’s House: Lessons Learned in the Home of a Civil Rights Pioneer deals with the historical facts of the times and the impact the conflicts had on a young boy from the ages of 4 to 14.

Purpose Driven Life

This book has changed many lives as people discover their purpose in life and how to live and serve others.

 

The most basic question everyone faces in life is Why am I here? What is my purpose? Self-help books suggest that people should look within, at their own desires and dreams, but Rick Warren says the starting place must be with God and his eternal purposes for each life. Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling God’s purposes for putting us on earth.
