Format: Paperback
This book is a balanced, sympathetic, yet fair account of the life of a man who was born in the Coal mining country of central England, joined the Wesley Methodist Church, served a clergy there at a young age and joined the Pentecostal Movement in England. Working with George Jeffreys he wrote the biography of that evangelist. He pastored in Ireland, Scotland, and England. In the early 1950's he joined with the American based Pentecostal Holiness Church,based in Georgia, due to its roots in Weslyan holiness theology - becoming a leader of the British work. He wrote articles, books, taught Bible classes and served as president of two Bible College, one in Bristol and one in Canada. Deeply commited to the theology of holiness and Pentecostalism he was also a lover of scholarship. Perfect for collections of 20th century religious biography, 20th century church history, Pentecostalism, or holiness studies.
