Dean Merrill, A Higher Code

Indeed, there was one of these men in the Jeddito community who had opposed every gospel effort up to this time. Now within sixty days, this “skin-walker” abruptly moved away. The church plant proceeded unhindered, becoming a healthy gathering of Christian believers, as Pastor Killingsworth and his teams kept coming every month for the next year and a half. Navajos—especially young people—were saved and filled with the Spirit in a genuine season of revival.

The work was eventually handed over to a nearby missionary to continue. Meanwhile, the pastor from Arkansas was “adopted” into the Navajo Nation and given a special name. Contact continues to this day. The little town has been a proving ground for the truth that “the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”2

Other notable titles have included a second book with Mrs. Burnham, To Fly Again (Tyndale); More than a Hobby, with Hobby Lobby founder and CEO David Green (Nelson); a book with Compassion International president Dr. Wess Stafford on the value of children, Too Small to Ignore (WaterBrook); and Every Man’s Bible (Tyndale), for which Merrill was the general editor.
