“After reading ‘An Ordinary Man – A Great God,’ one word repeatedly ran through my mind – the word grace. This is the story of a common man who was used by a mighty God.  May this moving story encourage believers and call more of them to His service.”

Dr. Fred Moritz, Executive Director of Baptist World Mission


“The book An Ordinary Man – A Great God is a dynamic story of spiritual adventure.  Missionary Ekblad’s life was truly a testimony of God’s power. 

I was especially interested due to the mentioning of his relationship with my uncle and aunt, Stuart and Margaret Gunzel, who were his co-workers on the Mongolian frontier. The fruit of their labor is still seen today as my cousins traveled to that region several years ago and met two 90-year-old believers who had labored with these pioneer missionaries over 70 years earlier.  The power of the Gospel had overcome the grip of atheistic communism.”

Dr. Gerry Carlson, Positive Action For Christ


“Next to reading the Bible, the most thrilling reading I have ever done is in the area of biographies, especially missionary biographies.

An Ordinary Man – A Great God‘ is one of those thrilling biographies.
It is a must read for every Christian.  It will draw you closer to God
and create a fire in your soul to serve our great Savior.”

Dr. Samuel Telloyan, Retired Missions Professor


“In depravation, loss, and almost unspeakable hardship, Knute Hjalmar Ekblad pressed forward with joy to share the glorious Gospel of Christ. Reading this inspiring page-turner will thrill your heart as you hear the voice of the Lord of the Harvest calling afresh. Ekblad may have been an “ordinary man,” but this pioneer lived one incredible life!”
