Excerpt from The Gospel of the Lilies To a genial, captivating, tactful personality, Dr. Guerrant adds a thrilling evangelistic eloquence, and a Christlike missionary zeal. Leaving a lucrative medical practice in his native Kentucky, after graduating in New York City, he took the full course at Union Theological Seminary, Virginia, serving later in both rural and metropolitan pastorates. Under his preaching and leadership the First Presbyterian Church of Louisville, Kentucky, had a phemenal growth. So incessant were the calls for his services that from this church he was soon forced into that wider ministry for which he was pre-eminently fitted by both nature and grace, and through which his name has become a household word throughout a wide section of our country. Hundreds of remarkable meetings he has held in the large centres of population, yet his heart, like that of his Master, has especially yearned over the needy and neglected.
