An autobiography completed in 1968, Fuller recounts his rapid rise to millionaire by the age of 29 when he and wife Linda made the dramatic decision to give away their wealth and dedicate their lives to God. The Fullers went on to start Habitat for Humanity International and The Fuller Center for Housing.
This limited edition book is a Millard Fuller classic. Many say it is their favorite. After the Fullers turned their back on a fortune, they developed a thriving affordable housing ministry in southwest Georgia followed by launching similar work in Africa. The rich stories within Bokotola tell how the Fuller's work evolved remarkably into Habitat for Humanity. Those same Biblically-based foundational principals are now the basis of The Fuller Center for Housing.

This is the definitive book on Millard Fuller’s philosophy and outlines the ideas upon which The Fuller Center for Housing was founded.

We must become servant leaders and match word with deed. (1992)
