Civil Rights leader/minister/humanitarian
One Sunday morning, Dr. Stanley preached a sermon that so illuminated an aspect of my life’s journey I wrote one of my strongest musical compositions. On the Sunday after Coretta Scott King died, through his teaching and preaching, he showed us a woman with a deep moving spirit and commitment to justice. I was able to cry again as we closed the service singing the spiritual, “There is a Balm in Gilead.” I have continually found inspiration and hope in his words. May you also find water in your dry times from this well.

A View From My Window is a refreshing, unassuming collection of a preacher’s thoughts and reflections about God and who we are as God’s children. Tony Stanley has a unique gift of sharing experiences of life through the lens of God’s love, mercy and faithfulness to all people. While reading his sermons, one feels as if one is reading over his shoulder as he journals about his life, ministry and how God’s love overshadows every nuance of what we do. Stanley has a gift of making the most mundane occurrence appear in reflection as a great epiphany in him. This book is a must read for every preacher and especially seminarians.
