What would it take? That was the question that Geoffrey Canada found himself asking. What would it take to change the lives of poor children—not one by one, through heroic interventions and occasional miracles, but in big numbers, and in a way that could be replicated nationwide? The question led him to create the Harlem Children’s Zone, a ninety-seven-block laboratory in central Harlem where he is testing new and sometimes controversial ideas about poverty in America. His conclusion: if you want poor kids to be able to compete with their middle-class peers, you need to change everything in their lives—their schools, their neighborhoods, even the child-rearing practices of their parents. Whatever It Takes is a tour de force of reporting, an inspired portrait not only of Geoffrey Canada but of the parents and children in Harlem who are struggling to better their lives, often against great odds. Carefully researched and deeply affecting, this is a dispatch from inside the most daring and potentially transformative social experiment of our time. This e-book includes a sample chapter of HOW CHILDREN SUCCEED.

“The prevailing philosophy of foreign missions was to send career missionaries to the nations of the world and let the fellow believers at home support them with their monies and prayers…Then Dub Jackson emerged on the scene…God planted a dream in his heart about reaching thousands…with the gospel of Jesus Christ…This book is about that watershed vision…This is a book about miracles and divine provision…This story must be told… “This book is not a dull history of some business plan and its processes. This book is about the incredible moving of God in the lives of real people, just like you and me. It is about the sacrifice that has brought now hundreds of thousands of people on Partnership Missions and millions into the Kingdom of God through their witness. This book throbs with life and whets the appetite for more. Every born-again Christian ought to read this book. It tells the story that is the closest to the heart of God, the story of redeeming love, compelling sacrifice, and glorious Good News.” —from the foreword

His dream was football. Since he was eight years old, author, Daniel Kelly, was a fan in every sense of the word. Every Sunday revolved around the game. He ate, breathed and lived for the game that he loved. He was even able to meet his favorite team and get autographs and pictures taken with many of his heroes. Over the years, his passion and obsession continued to grow. Then on his seventeenth birthday he was given a book that forever changed his life. It was a book about scouting. He couldn't put it down. He thought this is what I want to be; I want to be an NFL scout. He began recording college football games off of television and he'd race through his homework to practice writing scouting reports. When the rest of his high school typing class was working on their assignments, he was sitting in the back of the class typing up his scouting reports. He was so hoping his hard work might land him an internship, but nothing happened. Yet, he did not give up. He graduated from high school, but soon after dropped out of a small community college. He went to work for different companies, businesses and industries, but he could not deny football was still in his blood. He finally realized he had to go for it; he just had to give his dream one last chance. So, he put together a plan to do something that had never been done before. But, would it work this time? Find out how he pursued his childhood dream and became part of the NFL in Whatever it Takes.
