Ain't That Something?: The Musings, Adventures, and Experiences of a Southern Country Boy Reflecting Over Forty-Nine Years of Pastoral Ministry
God can take the life of the most insignificant individual or a ministry in a small to moderate-size church and touch the lives of many people for eternity. This is the lesson at the heart of Pastor Bonds' message to the readers of Ain't That Something? Pastor Bonds is retired, having served more than forty-nine years of pastoral ministry in various churches in Nebraska and Texas. He grew up in humble circumstances that some would even call poor during the Great Depression in the 1930's. However, he never thought of himself or his family as being poor. He lived a simple childhood and a rather insignificant adolescence. He takes the reader on the journey of his life from before he was born to the end of his years of pastoral ministry.
Pastor Bonds has written his book to encourage those who feel that they are just ordinary and insignificant; not really able to be useful to God in any meaningful way. He wants to encourage the pastors of the thousands of small and moderate-size churches scattered throughout America to see themselves as successful. His message is that God will use anyone who trusts Him.
