PRESIDENT AND FACULTY OF THE SOUTHWESTERN
BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY WHO, UNDER GOD,
FIRST SET MY SOUL ON FIRE WITH A PASSION FOR
CHRIST AND A COMPASSION FOR THE LOST
I AM greatly interested in the author and preacher of this volume of sermons. I had the pleasure of having him in my class in evangelism and of seeing him get ministerial instruction in his theological studies. He is a Christian Jew, and his conversion has all the signs of New Testament genuineness. Being called of God to preach, he chose the field of evangelism for his major operations, and the few years of his evangelistic labors have proved that he is an evangelist of a high order and that his sermons are vital parts of his soul.
The subjects he has chosen cover the intensive field of preparation for a revival and the proclamation of the essential gospel for the salvation of men. Some of the vital themes of the gospel are passionately explained and proclaimed. His soul is a heavenly fired soul; his words on sin are biting, blistering, and condemning; his emphasis on prayer, passionate compassion, the power of the blood, the essential fundamentals of evangelism, and the power of the Holy Spirit are great indeed.
One cannot read these messages without the burning heart and the deep urge to win people to Christ. It is good for preachers to read these sermons; it is fine for them to be distributed among the lost, because they will be shown the way of salvation in Christ Jesus.
I commend most heartily the author and the product of his hot heart and his trained brain and his compassionate soul, and may God bless the written message as He does the spoken message in the life of this evangelist.
