Every Mile a Miracle
In the pages of this book you will meet modern day Renaissance man Jackie Fay Robinson. His remarkable story took him from the hills of Kentucky to the halls of prestigious Princeton, from the ranks of the U.S. Army to a philosophy professorship at acclaimed Syracuse University, and ultimately to a lifelong call of ministry in a most unusual and unexpected milieu. Jackie's story is inextricably interwoven with that of his beloved wife of 57 years, Mary Ruth, and their five children, for Jackie's dream to reach "those who would never set foot inside a church" with the gospel of Jesus Christ would fuel the entire family's endeavors for over thirty years. Ride along with the Robinson Family Singers and their extraordinary adventures as they follow God's call on their lives, crossing continents, mountains, and oceans to minister to the lost and hurting. This is a man and a family you will never forget. "This book tells much of Jackie Fay Robinson's story, though far from all. His life has been packed with dreams, daring, and disappointments enough to fill a dozen books. Love of life, love of family, love of country, and love of God. These are the four pillars on which this family has always rested, and they are all on display in these pages. The ministry they chose has been blessed again and again with stunning touches of what can only be called God's providence." Gerald Culley, Associate Professor of Classics (Emeritus) University of Delaware.
