Dr. Elmer Towns is my friend. We met first in 1978, and he has been an encouragement to the Lord’s work here in Korea. Walking with Giants tells of his friendship with many of the pastors of the world’s largest churches and many nations of the world. He has a love for all the believers in all the denominations and has been a friend of pastors in all of these groups. Dr. Elmer Towns is a Baptist, and he has great love for those who love Jesus Christ. My church is Pentecostal, and he preached here, and was used of God.
Senior Pastor, Thomas Road Baptist Church, Lynchburg, Virginia
On July 4, 1971, when I was four years old, my family was having a picnic with Elmer and Ruth Towns, and we walked up to the top of Sharp Top, the highest mountain in Virginia. It was hot, and I was tired and wouldn’t go on. So Elmer lifted me onto his shoulders and took me to the top. I thank God for the many different ways Elmer has carried me over the years. Now, it is my privilege to be his pastor and to “carry” him and the work of Thomas Road Baptist Church forward. Elmer has impacted my life more than words could ever express!

Bestselling Author, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
I first met Dr. Towns when I was a college student working on staff with John C. Maxwell in Lancaster, Ohio. From 1972 until this day, he has been a friend and mentor to me. I’ve had the opportunity to co-author books and share speaking events with him. What you see is what you get! Elmer Towns is a good and godly man whose walk matches his talk. The Elmer L. Towns Legacy Collection is a reflection of a life well lived by one of my heroes of the faith.

I remember joking about my friend Dr. Towns in front of thousands of Liberty University students at convocation. I said, “Dr. Towns has no unpublished thought,” to the roaring laughter of those who know and love him. It seems to be true—my shelf is filled with his wisdom, just as that convocation arena was filled with those influenced and touched by his life. Read this memoir of a man who changed the world.
