By My Own Reckoning
By My Own Reckoning is Cecil Sherman's gift of memory to those whose lives he has touched through his many years of ministry and service. In this rare autobiography, Dr. Sherman reflects on his life as a pastor, as a husband and father, and as a key moderate figure in the SBC political controversy of the 1980s. More importantly, Sherman shares with readers intimate history of his life and ministry, from his origins as the descendent of preachers and farmers, to his pastoral years, and ultimately to the tender love story of caring for his wife, Dot, as she fades into the haze of Alzheimer's disease. Writing in the same astute, conversational style that has endeared him to so many readers of Formations commentary, Dr. Sherman has given voice to memories of family, Baptist history, and lifelong ministry that should not be forgotten.
