Dennis Jones is an extraordinary individual. He is a brilliant and insightful businessman and entrepreneur. Amazingly, he is also a missionary statesman with a clear view of the challenges and problems facing church congregations at home and abroad. Dennis has become a voice of inspiration, enlightenment, and encouragement to individuals, business leaders, and local churches who find themselves facing adversity in these trying and uncertain times. What Dennis shares in this book, he has lived. But Dennis is quick to note that only by the grace of God has he taken the hits and continued the race.
As you read this amazing recounting of Dennis’ life and the insights that the Lord has imparted to him, let your heart be encouraged, knowing that it’s never too late to do the right thing and, by doing so, you’ve begun the journey to climbing out of adversity.—Pat Robertson, Founder/Chairman of the Board The Christian Broadcasting Network, Inc.
A captivating testimony that will encourage anyone and offer a provocative challenge to every Christian and church leader. Life changing is an overused term in Christian circles, but Dennis shares real life examples of God’s power to transform one’s life from the depths of despair. This book reveals the grace of God in a deep and edifying way that will cause you never to look at the redeeming work of Jesus in the same way. Jones’ impassioned charge to the church and our nation will surely challenge your heart and mind.—Bobby Hill, EdD, Director The Center for Christian Thought and Action, Regent University International Director, Vanguard Ministries
You did not pick up this book by accident. God means for you to read and digest the biblical principles contained in it. Dennis Jones is my long-standing dear friend and brother—I always say, “You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your brothers.”—and I have chosen Dennis to be one of my closest friends. Dennis starts off his book with the theme of “An Accidental Rebel.” He certainly is open regarding his “rebel” life, and this helped his book become a powerful testimony. At the time of his born-again experience, it was no accident that God called Dennis to help “usher in the return of the Lord.” Later, he was miraculously baptized in the Holy Spirit, and yes it’s true, during a sales meeting! These miracles follow Dennis’ life throughout this book, in business, ministry, and missions work around the world. I’ve had the joy of Dennis traveling with me on multiple mission trips and seeing the power and fruit of his ministry. Stay with Dennis all the way through this book. The final six chapters are tremendous prophetic warnings and encouragement to be biblically correct instead of politically correct. This final chapter on “Finishing Well” is superb and every reader will want to meditate on what God has given us through Dennis.—Dr. Howard Foltz, President Accelerating International Mission Strategies Professor Emeritus, Regent University
