A would-be Black Muslim returns to his college dormitory room and personally meets the man he so staunchly opposed, Jesus Christ. In Still Standing, the author skillfully interweaves his twentieth-century story with that of the prophet Daniel, who lived over 2,500 years ago. The writing has such passion and rhythm that it seems to breathe in the reader's hand. This journey is not for the faint of heart. Grier tackles some hard questions about race and reveals the underside of religion. He is ruthlessly honest in his examination of himself, but he faces his personal demons squarely and ultimately triumphs.
