Overview

This book is about a prophet in the twenty-first century whom God has anointed to live by faith in his times. With no natural resources, just himself, his family, and God, he is chosen to live this way. There were many who said that it could not be done, but Apostle Henry L. Edwards proves, through his faith walk, that it could be done.
