About the Book

Astonishing Grace traces the transformation of an eager learner into a sensitive, incarnational mentor of emerging national leaders. Ed's observant and analytical mind, coupled with his Biblical insights, gave him the tools to grow and be effective. How these circumstances were used of God to shape his missiology and strategy is a story leaders today can profit from.

Astonishing Grace is the story of the evolvement of evangelicalism in Haiti from the '30s to the present. Ed Walker has definitely played a major role along the way.

-Raymond A. Joseph

Haiti’s US Ambassador (retired)

From humble birth to 'finishing well,' Ed quietly presents the story of the way the Lord met him throughout his life-as student, husband, father, pastor, missionary, educator, broadcaster, administrator, and advisor to dictators and government officials. This will be a classic read for missionaries and missions committees, as well as for pastors, church, and ministry leaders, and theology students.

-Paul R. Gilchrist, PhD

Former Stated Clerk, PCA, General Assembly

A founder of World Reformed Fellowship

This autobiography is not just for those who follow the missions' path Ed followed. For those of us whose mission experience is lived out in the marketplace, Ed's journey in missions is still one we can share. And as we learn from him, we will better serve the Savior he inspires us to love and serve.
