'I do not believe that anyone can read this exciting and moving story of lives lived for the kingdom of God without becoming a better person through the experience.'
D. James Kennedy, (1930-2007) Late Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Janie Buck having applied her skills to share the testimony of my good friend and home pastor, Frank Barker, should result in thousands being blessed in a phenomenal way. At long last the story of this humble man who built one of the leading churches in this country is being told. Frank's simple life of faith in a supernatural God who delights in doing the impossible when we trust Him should warm your heart, and hopefully be an example to many. I was spiritually refreshed as I relived some of the experiences related in this wonderful book.
Bailey Marks, Senior Vice President, Campus Crusade for Christ
'I highly recommend this book to young pastors because it will enrich their ministry. They will discover the central ingredients of the Christian life and how to have a missions program that will be a blessing to the entire world. I thank God for Frank Barker.'
The Late Bill Bright, Founder and Chairman of Campus Crusade for Christ Intl.
'The story of Frank Barker is an amazing account of how God uses the faithful and the humble. In a marvelous way Christ sought him, saved him, and made him an effective instrument for the building up of the church. What a remarkable and encouraging legacy!'
John MacArthur, Chancellor Emeritus, The Master’s University and Seminary and Pastor–Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
Early in my ministry, I spent several days with Frank, following him around and watching everything he did to learn all I could from him. Besides his commitment to prayer and his heart for evangelism, the other obvious fact about Frank's life and ministry was how hard he worked daily from early until late..The Lord greatly blessed Frank's diligence as well as his faithfulness.

Pick this book up and you'll find it hard to put it down... you will be truly challenged and humbled by their zeal, vision, sacrificial giving and burden for the lost.
"An interesting book that tells a fascinating life-story, Flight Path was an enjoyable read and one I am glad to recommend."

'This is the page-turning story of one of the most remarkable ministers of the Gospel I have ever known. I wish that every young minister could spend a year under the tutelage of Frank Barker. A great read about a mighty man of God!'
Timothy George, Founding Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama
What an extraordinary privilege to recommend this book on one of the great pastors that our Lord has provided for His church, Dr. Frank Barker. Frank has been my mentor, my friend, and now my colleague as he serves as Pastor Emeritus of Briarwood where I have had the privilege to follow him into the role of Senior Pastor at that church the Lord used him to establish and grow with the mission to "reach Birmingham to reach the world for Christ." This book will give you insights on how the extraordinary power of God works through a man who has an extraordinary commitment to serve His God.
Harry L. Reeder III, Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama
One of the great American pastors of the twentieth century, Dr. Frank Barker's dramatic conversion and selfless service translated into a remarkable ministry that touched thousands of lives and made a major contribution to international missions. If I were to select a model pastor, Frank Barker would be that person. I am thrilled that his life story is now available so that more people can become acquainted with this gifted man of God and the global vision that marked his ministry at Briarwood Presbyterian Church.
