WILLIAM M BAKER
This stirring biography tells the story of Daniel Baker, the great evangelist of the American South, largely in his own words. Baker was one of those preachers who could not resist the call to ‘preach Christ where he was not named’, and wherever he went it was ‘in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ’. His longest stay in one pastorate amounted to just nine years, whereas he was involved in gospel ministry for almost forty years, itinerating from Pennsylvania and Ohio, through Virginia, the Carolinas, his native Georgia and around the southern states to Texas.
Citing Isaiah 52:7, Professor Douglas Kelly writes of Baker: ‘There could not be a better way of characterizing the effects of the life and preaching of this great Southern evangelist…than this verse about beautiful feet hastening with glad tidings across waste places’
