I am humbled by a blog about “Back to the Summit” that has recently come to my attention. Written by a lady named Ruth Hill, it does me great honor, especially coming from a somewhat unexpected source. Ms. Hill writes “as I read all of the wrongs [Rains} suffered quietly throughout his life, I was stunned,” …and I marveled at the fact that he did not let bitterness and hatred … consume him as I have seen…do to those who are closet to me. The way he responded in word and deed tended to put me to shame….He has acted more Christlike than a lot of people who call themselves evangelical Christians-myself unfortunately included….Yes, Senator Rains has indeed won me over. I have decided that the book deserves a 5-star rating, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to my readers.”

I was not sure what to make of this book once I began reading it.  I was impressed that the senator chose to tell his own story without relying on”ghost writers,” but this was indeed a long, detailed account of a man who lived most of his life during a time with which I was not familiar. It was quite a daunting task.
I was initially drawn to his story because of the brain injury he had incurred and survived.  I was not drawn into his early life that much. And even his political career failed to capture my interest. I could have done without much of the detail, profanity (which proved to be much milder than I first thought), and stories of his exploits. I had planned on giving this book a three- or four-star rating.  I felt this book was written for a generation previous to mine. Read More→
