Bitesize Biographies: William Gadsby
1 in stock
Most people encounter William Gadsby through singing the small number of his hymns that are still in general use. In strict Baptist circles, his name continues to be held in high esteem for his work as a preacher, for his hymn book, and as founder of the Gospel Standard magazine.
Although Gadsby is perhaps not so well known as many others of his time, Ian Shaw reveals him to be a unique but clear, earnest preacher who had the gospel at the centre of all he did. His ministry was shaped by his own poverty as a child, and he was able to touch people of all social backgrounds, preaching and ministering extensively to those both inside and outside the church.
'This brief treatment of the life and labours of William Gadsby manages to be both frank and fair, highlighting the strengths of Gadsby's ministry without neglecting the contentions and weaknesses, stirring us by the former and warning us by the latter."?
