About this title
This book is the personal journal of Joseph Hewitt, a profligate and degenerate young Englishman, who was powerfully converted by the power of the Holy Spirit, an experience he describes as "a fire in my bones" He joined the Primitive Methodist Church, where he was commissioned a lay preacher and sent to America to preach the gospel to the Cornish miners on the American frontier. Brother Hewitt's journal is a day-by-day record of a circuit-riding preacher in the nineteenth century, the era of slavery, the Civil War, and Lincoln. He traveled on foot, on horseback, and by buggy through Wisconsin blizzards and floods, often preaching several times a week. Read his journal; it may kindle a fire in your bones.About the Author:
