Paperback
On F.B. Meyer's death in 1929, obituaries in the secular press were clear that he was a key player on the world scene ? yet this is the first chronological account of his life. F.B. Meyer was the minister of one of Britain's first ?mega-churches?. Coming from a conventional, middle class Victorian background he experienced no dramatic conversion. He was not a distinguished scholar and not a dramatic orator. His slight figure and retiring manner meant that he did not stand out in a crowd. Yet he drew crowds by the thousands, wrote books which sold by the millions, and attracted working class people. The range of Meyer's activities are astonishing: preacher, pastor, writer, social activist, Baptist president, advocate for missionary work and more. In his last years, he declared, ?If I had a hundred lives, they should be at Christ's disposal.? At times, it seemed as though he was living a hundred lives

- Publisher On F.B. Meyer's death in 1929 The Daily Telegraph called him 'The Archbishop of the Free Churches'. The New York Observer noted that 'He has an international fame and his services are constantly sought by churches over the wide and increasing empire of Christendom.' To the secular press of his time he was a key player on the world scene - yet this is the first chronological account of Meyer's life. Meyer was the minister one of Britain's first 'megachurches'. He was friends with D.L. Moody and ministered on both sides of the Atlantic. He came from a conventional, middle class Victorian background and experienced no dramatic conversion. He was not a distinguished scholar or dramatic orator. His slight figure and retiring manner meant that he did not stand out in a crowd. Yet he drew crowds by the thousands, wrote books, which sold by the millions, and attracted working class people. The range of Meyer's activities is astonishing: preacher, pastor, writer, social activist, free church leader, Baptist president, advocate for missionary work and more. In his last years, he declared, 'If I had a hundred lives, they should be at Christ's disposal.' At times, it seemed as though he was living a hundred lives!
