In Running the Good Race, Dennis Blue, a man guided in his actions by his Christian faith, relates how he and his wife Dorothy, survived the tragic loss of her parents and how he flew as a missionary pilot in the Amazon bringing supplies to missionaries and Indians alike. Consequently, he helped discover a stone-age tribe in the dense jungles of the Amazonia. While in Venezuela, Dennis Blue negotiated a peaceful outcome to a violent labor strike against his employer, the Ford Motor Company. Later, he assisted in the establishment of Ford operations in the Asia-Pacific region. Eventually, he worked at senior executive level to help change the direction of the Ford Motor Company. In all of this activity, he was always guided by his personal relationship with Jesus.
