John Perkins is one of the leading evangelical voices to come out of the American Civil Rights movement. Dr. Perkins suffered a lot in his 92 years: His mother died of malnutrition, his brother was murdered by the local sheriff. Personally, he was tortured by police, has lost two children, and suffered through cancer. Yet he can still say, "I've learned that true joy is formed in the crucible of suffering. I want you to share this joy that I have found."
