The World’s Greatest Evangelist

FROM railway porter in Glasgow, Scotland, to pastor of Regent’s Square (Presbyterian) Church, London, England, is a long step.

Self Respect and Getting On

A devout Scotchman declared: “For twenty years I hae been praying the Lord to gie me a gude opeenion o’ my self'.” HOW few people appreciate what real self respect means; that it is an integral part of man, and that when it is gone, the man is gone.
