Book Description

An informal account of S. M. Houghton’s life and times. It provides a fascinating survey of the experiences of a Christian man through the years of the twentieth century. A history lesson in itself, it also unselfconsciously demonstrates what it means to allow God’s Word to illuminate every circumstance in life.

    There are many quiet servants of our Lord who go about their business for him unknown to many. Mr Houghton was obviously one of those people. This is a lovely account of sure faith and service and is pleasantly written and encouraging. It is well worth your money and attention.
