What does it take to live a life of radical faith - a life that can only be explained by God? In Faith Pointes Barbara shares the basic life lessons that make radical faith possible. With stories of victories and failures from her own personal faith journey, you will be encouraged to follow God on this exciting path. Barbara B. Barker is the wife of Dr. Frank M. Barker, Jr., the founding pastor and current pastor emeritus of the 4,000-member Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama. She holds a degree in Speech and Drama from Northwestern University in Chicago, with a minor in English education, and was a pilot. She is a popular Bible teacher and Christian speaker and the co-founder of the Briarwood Ballet School. They have three grown children and eleven grandchildren. Denise Hamilton has led Bible studies for high school and college girls for the past 25 years. She was formerly the associate executive director of finance at University of Alabama Hospital and is currently an instructor of health care financial management at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She is a CPA and holds an accounting degree from Auburn University and an MBA from UAB. But her true claim-to-fame is making ballet costume headdresses.
