Amazing Grace Overcoming Race

Amazing Grace Overcoming Race

— Deacon Larry Oney

This book 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!

This book is no longer in print. Deacon Oney is working with The Word Among Us Press to publish a revised edition of this book. We hope to have it published in 2018.

Speaking about Amazing Grace Overcoming Race: “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 in a personal letter about Deacon Oney’s book: Amazing Grace Overcoming Race
