One Solitary Life
One Solitary Life was written by James A. Francis in 1926. Dr. Francis originally shared the story at the First Baptist Church of Los Angeles in a sermon, "Arise, Sir Knight." It was delivered on July 11, 1926 to the National Baptist Young Peoples Union. Later, Francis included it as the last sermon in his book, The Real Jesus And Other Sermons published by Judson Press in 1926. Rev. Francis died at age 64 on June 30, 1928.
In only 248 words he captured the essence of how the life of Jesus Christ has made a powerful difference for over 2,000 years: One Solitary Life
