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.
