If there is no age limit on the presidency this is the man to raise the national debt. A North Carolina mountain boy who inherited a flare for persuasive preaching and a Baptist zeal for souls from his grandfather and uncle, George Truett was a credit to his devout mother and industrious father. He worked hard on the farm, as a small school principal, was converted and followed wherever God guided him, turned down an offer of a college education to go to Texas and was literally forced into the ministry by the congregation of the church instead of the law which he wanted to pursue. A fascinating biography of a man of rare charm, great natural ability, brilliant intellect who, though over seventy, is still an example of what God can do by, for, in and through one individual wholly consecrated to Him. Good Lenten reading for any denomination that wants to be pulled out of the rut and stirred to effort.
