I’d heard of George Washington Carver, and I knew that he’d done a lot of work with peanuts.

That was about it.

Now that I’ve read this book, I feel like I know Dr. Carver more deeply than ever before.

Jonh Perry’s book is intensely personal. Aside from occasionally repeating himself, his storytelling is compelling and fascinating.

If you’re interested in the contributions of Dr. Carver to the American experience, then you will enjoy this book.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

In verses 1-5, Paul reminds the Corinthians that he didn’t try to impress them with arguments.

Rather, he let Jesus’ message speak for itself through the Spirit.
