Suddenly Silenced: Forty Years as an Associate Evangelist with Billy Graham is the latest book by John Wesley White. In 1996, Dr. White was 'suddenly silenced' when a devastating stroke ended his preaching career. The medical experts mistakenly predicted that he would never speak again. This book is a testimony of John's unwavering faith and courage, his deep passion for evangelism and his determination, despite a severe and life-altering stroke, to continue to spread the gospel. The stories of John's days with the BGEA are fascinating and vividly detailed. The reader gets a clear picture of the early years with Billy Graham and his associates and of the fire and commitment of those evangelists and their teams who crisscrossed the globe with the good news of Jesus Christ. Suddenly Silenced is a moving story of John's personal faith and a powerful testament of God's faithfulness through adversity. Anyone who has suffered debilitating loss, illness or injury will find great encouragement on the pages of this book. "Until a stroke interrupted his ministry, John Wesley White held crusades across America as well as his native Canada, and he hosted his own religious television program in Canada. His unique brand of eloquent preaching is unforgettable. I have been especially grateful for the way John has been a mentor to Franklin." ~Billy Graham, Just as I Am "This book is proof that with God's help and a stubborn refusal to give up, his brilliant mind and great heart need not continue to be trapped inside a prison of a body which refuses to cooperate. I'm amazed and challenged by this publication of yet another of the many wonderful books authored by John Wesley White." ~David Mainse, 100 Huntley Street David Mainse speaks with Dr. John Wesley White & Kathleen White about what they have been through since John's stroke in 1996.
