The official biography of Dr. R. Rajkumar—one of India’s most notable evangelists—whose journey from doubt to faith led to a life as unpredictable as it is unbelievable.

As a young engineer about to be married, Raj had a simple life in mind for himself. But when he was rattled by a conversation with a friend about the Bible, it piqued his curiosity and sent him on a quest to find the truth about God. What followed was a spiritual upheaval that led him to change his mind without realizing how it would change his life. A religious relativist turned into an unlikely evangelist. But the thrill of traveling to 40 nations and preaching 500 sermons a year came with the threat of being a distant husband and an absent father.

The Whistler in the Wind is the true story of how a man found God at work in the seasons of his life, long before he set out to find Him.
