"With Barry Black, you don't just hear a sermon, you see the sermon. That sermon is captured vividly in this story of his life. A life shaped by love, humility, confidence, courage, strength, and hope." - from the Foreword, THOMAS R. CARPER, US Senator

"Barry Black is a leader among leaders. Brilliant and articulate, yet humble and approachable, he is a force for integrity, goodness, and compassion on Capitol Hill . . . this narrative, From the Hood to the Hill, is a fascinating read." - DR. RICK WARREN, Best-Selling Author, The Purpose Driven Life, and Pastor, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA

"Chaplain Barry Black embodies the best of the American Spirit and the Christian tradition-a man of great erudition who has never forgotten his humble roots; a man of great faith who remains open to all the wisdom of all people; a man of great seriousness who knows how to laugh. The Senate and the country are grateful for his service." - BARRACK OBAMA, US Senator

"From a wonderfully unique man comes a powerfully unique story. Barry Black is a testimony to God's faithfulness and grace." - MAX LUCADO, Pastor, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio, TX

"This is an inspiring autobiography by an outstanding man of God, a great leader, a powerful preacher, and a true patriot . . . Barry Black is my cherished friend. I'm honored that he succeeded me as Chaplain of the United States Senate. From the Hood to the Hill is a stirring and power-packed book of the way God uses whom He chooses." - DR. LLOYD J. OGILVIE, Former US Senate Chaplain

Most Inspiring book, From the Hood to the Hill  Feb 24, 2007
This book was such an inspiration, we ordered extras to give as gifts.
We just got a thank you note today, stating, "Thank you for the book. It is a good read and has re-energized my own will and desire to write. Thank you."

I would recommend it to anyone wanting encouragement to reach high, no matter where you are in life.
From the Hood to the Hill  Jan 12, 2007
This book was well written. Content was realistic and humourous. It gave me hope that I can also overcome if I believe. I really enjoyed reading the book. Chaplain Black did an excellent job with this book and I am looking forward to read other books in the future.
Superb  Jan 11, 2007
Should be required reading for all children who believe they can't achieve because of less than ideal circumstances.
From the Hood to the Hill  Jan 11, 2007
I love autobiographies - and I think that this is a great one. Black not only talks about his life as a child - to his life as the Chaplain of the Senate - but he also covers the religious aspect of how to live our lives. He gives God the credit for where he is in life - and seems to realize that God gave it all to him - and that God can take it away. This is a very good book for people to read.
For guidance and uplift   Jan 3, 2007
As you begin to read you become aware of the fact that such success is not common in 'real life' and yet this fact based book is a reality. The driver is spiritually based and yet not so heavenly focused that it cannot do any earthly good.

This read is awe inspring and refreshingly self revealing as each page demonstrates the life of a human being who has achieved so much, has been so successful and has done so with humour, elegance and humility.

There is a keen feeling of hope and success as you go through the "fairytale-type" facts of Dr Black's life. The story is emphasised through the helpful 'lessons learnt' guidance which can be applied in your own life.

This book is a comfortable and comforting read that is 'juicy' until the last page.
