Based on new interviews with all of York’s living children, and York’s own diaries, this exhaustive biography follows the young soldier from the hills of Tennessee to the battlefields of France, down Broadway in a triumphant ticker-tape parade, and back home to his family farm where he spent the rest of his life in service to his community and his God.

Unshakable Faith

Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver, children of slaves, overcame seemingly insurmountable barriers to find renown in the fields of education and science. Both men retained strong personalities that occasionally came into conflict. Like iron sharpening iron, their differences served to refine and define their collaborative work. An abiding faith in Christ and sense of divine appointment guided them through a world of dark prejudice with humility and self-confidence. They quietly proved their oppressors wrong and along the way made remarkable discoveries and contributions that have inestimably benefited mankind to this day.

A Foreign Devil in China

This is the remarkable story of Nelson Bell and his family who served as missionaries to China from 1916 to 1941, including areas that were occupied by Japan. He was a gifted surgeon and Bible teacher who founded the magazine, Christianity Today, with his son-in-law, Billy Graham and who served as moderator of the Presbyterian Church USA’s 1972 General Assembly. His son, Clayton Bell, served as senior pastor to one of the largest US Presbyterian churches, Highland Park Presbyterian Church, Dallas, Texas. A truly inspirational life and wonderful story. Bell’s love for the Chinese he served brought him the native name “the Bell who is the lover of the people.”
