About the Book: In writing these memoirs, the author has been brutally honest and unafraid to show his character flaws, including an often inflated opinion of himself, a reticence to listen to the advice of others, and a tendency to rebellion that frequently brought hardship on his family. Other times, his failures were caused by mistakes and he had to constantly remind himself that a mistake is not always a sin, but sin is always a mistake. In spite of these failures, God always opened a door through which Rex was able to step, finally resulting in the "good life" for him and for those whom He entrusted to his care. He doesn't attribute these openings to his own efforts, firmly believing they came about as gifts from our Heavenly Father -- "Every good gift, and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." (James 1:17) For that he is grateful as it has allowed him to face life with a positive expectation of good. Set against the background of the tumultuous 20th century-great wars, economic depression, the rise of the automobile, the airplane, electric power, and an incredible revolution in communications-Price of Pride is a searingly honest memoir of a life well lived.
