Description

Since the death six years ago of that prince of Bible expositors, G. Campbell Morgan, there has been incessant demand from the Christian public for the publication of an official biography. Such a work was not to be lightly undertaken or swiftly completed, for it must be of heroic proportions in keeping with the character of the man.
Now it is here, the product of Dr. Morgan's personal diary, the family's own records, and the contributions of a host of friends the world around. Dr. Morgan had four sons, all ministers; this book is the work of the wife of the eldest son, and is beautifully printed and illustrated. It is a success-story in the finest sense of the term.
Rejected for ordination while he was quite young for what was considered the inferior quality of his preaching, Campbell Morgan by native ability and laborious toil achieved international fame. Under his preaching the Bible literally sprang into life and multitudes of people were enthralled. So great was the demand for his sermons that his books gained circulation throughout the English-speaking world.
This biography deserves a permanent place in every Christian's library. It is the record of one who adorned the Gospel ministry--a profound thinker, an inspiring speaker, and a reverent humble servant of Christ.
