Publisher: Trafford Publishing

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 224 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.2in. x 0.9in.The story of J. W. Masters is a story worth telling. His life spanned seventy-four years during the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. He organized or started nineteen congregations in small communities in the hills of southeastern Kentucky. Through trial and error, early speech problems were subsequently turned into the preaching style of a veteran orator. His keen sense of humor, a perception of plain logic, and a command of language enabled him to draw audiences from far and near. The times did not afford many with opportunities of advanced education. Consequently he battled with choosing the right course until he finally ruled out both medicine and law and settled into the vocation of simply becoming a minister of the Gospel. Even in the toughest times, his commitment to his calling was exemplary. Whether his audiences were large or small, in church houses or public buildings, in winter or summer, in a formal appearance or personal roadside conversation, he never regarded any opportunity as second rate and considered any occasion worthy of a full tilt approach in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Although his story concluded nearly one hundred years ago, he was truly a legend among mountain communities in southeastern Kentucky. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781426924514

His keen sense of humor, a perception of plain logic, and a command of language enabled him to draw audiences from far and near. The times did not afford many with opportunities of advanced education. Consequently he battled with choosing the right course until he finally ruled out both medicine and law and settled into the vocation of simply becoming a minister of the Gospel. Even in the toughest times, his commitment to his calling was exemplary. Whether his audiences were large or small, in church houses or public buildings, in winter or summer, in a formal appearance or personal roadside conversation, he never regarded any opportunity as second rate and considered any occasion worthy of a full tilt approach in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Although his story concluded nearly one hundred years ago, he was truly a legend among mountain communities in southeastern Kentucky.
