Lessons of My Father is a small tribute to a great man. A memoir, it is a collection of the lessons Edmund Bullock learned from his father as he stayed close to him-in work, in play, and in worship-for fifty years. Written in a smooth, easy, conversational style of the writer's favorite author, the iconic historian David McCullough, the book chronicles much of the life of George Bullock, Sr., the youngest of twenty-seven children growing up in the Jim Crow South, and the years that followed as he raised fourteen children of his own in the inner city of Boston, Massachusetts. In a lyrical voice, the author describes in entertaining detail what it was like to be the son of George Bullock, a larger-than-life loving father, firm disciplinarian, dynamic preacher of the Gospel, faithful friend, gifted musician, and committed church member. In humorous anecdotes, Edmund Bullock shares a little family history, as well as a bit of his own story. This is a compelling and moving tribute, a candid documentary. You will laugh and cry, and be amazed at the magnitude of this great man, small in stature, whose life has touched thousands and continues to do so.
