Summary

Thomas Johnson and Charles Spurgeon lived worlds apart.

Johnson, an American slave, born into captivity and longing for freedom - Spurgeon, an Englishman born into relative ease and comfort, but, longing, too, for a freedom of his own. Their respective journeys led to an unlikely meeting and an even more unlikely friendship, forged by fate and mutual love for the mission of Christ.

Steal Away Home is a new kind of book based on historical research, which tells a previously untold story set in the 1800s of the relationship between an African-American missionary and one of the greatest preachers to ever live.

Encouraging story

Love this book. Just a pity the reader has not captured the English accent in any way, a little research into the pronunciation of counties or places would have helped and does detract from the overall performance. The storyline is excellent and inspirational, staying close to God through ill health and exceptionally difficult circumstances.

A very good book!

I was very impressed with this book. It held my interest and I learned a lot about two very different men and interesting men. If you have ever had any interest in the time of slavery this is a good story about that time in history and you will learn all about Charles Spurgeon’s life. Take the time to read this book written by Matt Carter it will be worth it!!!
