In a room filled with some of Atlanta’s prominent movers and shakers—mostly from Episcopal and Jewish faith traditions—a discussion of the Mount Paran Church and its pastor arose. My first thought was to indicate that Paul Walker and I had been friends for a half century, but I wisely chose to remain silent and listen. What followed was a surprising affirmation of Pastor Paul Walker and the Mount Paran Church. Paul was described in remarkable terms like respected, great integrity, excellent communicator, and community asset. None of these neighbors ever knew that Paul and I were acquainted.
That community discussion by Atlanta leaders was a reflection of Paul Walker’s ministry at the Mount Paran Church in Atlanta. For thirty-eight years, he helped meet the spiritual needs of a large, diverse congregation. Dr. Walker’s unusual spiritual insight is confirmed in his latest book, Spiritual Laws for Successful Living. This edition of his recent releases is a compelling, faith-inspiring compilation of spiritual truth. A legendary leader and one of America’s great pastors, he speaks eloquently to preachers and laity on the relationship of spirituality and successful living.
