Date April 6, 2020

Do you know who Ernest C. Reisinger was?

In the video above, Katie Irwin, a long-time friend of Ernie’s, recounts her meeting Ernie and talks about the impact the life of this man of God had on her. She refers throughout to Geoff Thomas’ biography of Ernie Reisinger.

Readers with an interest in the development of American evangelical Christianity in the twentieth century will find this work a valuable source. A thrilling note pervading the entire narrative is that God alone is glorified in salvation.

Reisinger’s early life, his conversion, war service in the U.S. Navy, business success and call to the pastoral ministry are all described. But here too is the the more intimate story of his family life, with its joys and sorrows, and the astonishing influence of his book distribution efforts.

The climax of the story is the role Reisinger has played in helping to call the Southern Baptist Convention, America’s largest Protestant denomination, back to its historical roots.

This book is the record of the outworking of the grace of God in one whose self-description has long been, ‘Not a profitable servant, but a pardoned sinner.’

Also, here is a title by Ernie Reisinger:
