I'D DO IT ALL AGAIN BY CLIFTON L. GANUS, JR.
Cliff Ganus engaged life in a number of ways. In the academic world he was a scholar, a popular teacher and lecturer, and a university president and chancellor. As a church leader he was an outstanding preacher, an elder for the College Church of Christ for fifty-four years, a designated representative of the Churches of Christ to three countries, committed to the spread of the gospel in this country and abroad, and a founder and director of a Christian academy in Africa. As an adventurer he rode the Trans-Siberian Railway, climbed the Great Pyramid, visited 117 countries, made four seven-hundred-mile Mississippi River trips in a small boat, loved athletics as a participant and supporter, took friends and family fishing in Alaska every August, and never stopped exploring and learning. He was a devoted and admired patriarch to his family, and he kept a list of over 500 friends whom he telephoned every year on their birthday. This is his story of his life. For those who knew him it is a reminder of the joy and commitment which characterized him. Those in the Harding University and Church of Christ fellowships will recognize many of the people who play a role in the narrative. For those who did not know him, this is an introduction to a man who was committed to God, family, and service, told with a dash of adventure and humor in his own words - an ordinary accounting of an extraordinary life.
