Throughout all my ministry I have often wondered what made the godly F.B. Meyer tick. What life lay behind the five million copies of his books that sold during his lifetime? What drew great multitudes of people to listen to this gentle spiritual giant? What kind of preaching led to the Post Office at Keswick running out of postal orders the morning after Meyer had preached in the great Convention tent on the subject of holiness? The postal orders were taken up by Christians paying their bills the morning after the night before! What quality of man inspired the congregation at his funeral service to sing the "Hallelujah Chorus"?
Fullerton's fascinating and most readable life of F.B. Meyer answered these questions for me. Here is a book which glows with touching and very moving stories of a life lived to God's glory. I am convinced it will be a blessing to a new generation facing the problems of a new century with the same Saviour as F.B. Meyer in their hearts.
