Our newest review is one of my favorite, and the story behind it is pretty cute too.
A friend of Wendell’s purchased his book, read it, and really enjoyed it. This friend had a friend who was bed-ridden and this guy says to him, “I just read a great book, I’m going to bring it over to you to, it’ll give you something good to do,” to which the bed-ridden man replied, “No thanks, I’m not much of a reader.” Well the guy brings it to the man anyway and asks him to at least give it a try and read the first chapter.
A week later, the man gets in touch with Wendell and says to him,
That is the best book I’ve ever read. Not like I’ve read many books, but it was so good it ought to be on a mandatory reading list for everyone!
The story doesn’t end there though. Perhaps the reason it’s one of my favorites is because I just love what a “small world” it is. As it turns out, this guy went to the same high school as Wendell but was two grades behind him. Remembering one another from high school, one would never know as they chatted that over 50 years had passed.
I just love stories like that! There are also many great stories in Wendell Arnold’s autobiography, FROM THE COTTON PATCH TO Ph.D., GOD’S MANAGEMENT OF MAN THROUGH THE EYES OF A SCIENTIST, where he tells about growing up picking cotton and becoming a world renowned scientist with faith in God.
