Amazing Grace Overcoming Race is not just an autobiography of Larry Oney’s life so far; rather it is his inspiring testimony to the power of God’s love and grace in his life. Deacon Larry shares his struggles of growing up as a sharecropper’s son, his growing awareness of structural-racism, and God’s grace throughout his life. This inspiring story calls us all to be more open to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives! “Thank you for placing these reflections in writing and for giving me an opportunity to read these reflections on your life and on the important topic of racism. Thanks for your witness to ‘The New Evangelization.’ I am humbled to know that our prayer for the New Battle of New Orleans gave you further motivation to publish this work and to give us an opportunity to grow in God’s wisdom through you.” Most Reverend Gregory M. Aymond, Archbishop of New Orleans. “Deacon Larry’s story-telling skill helps to make history real—it’s like I’m sitting in his home listening to him share stories about his past. Reading about his life experiences sheds light on many areas of race-related concerns and how God’s grace can help us to overcome.” J.D. McGurn, President, Thorn Cross Ministries, LLC.
