A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
Samuel Davies: Apostle to Virginia by Dewey Roberts is the first full-scale biography ever produced on Samuel Davies, America’s greatest ever preacher. It is a meticulously researched work which presents the story of Davies’ life from cradle to grave. With the publication of this new biography, the great Samuel Davies will no longer be an obscure figure from the past. It deserves a place on the bookshelves of those who have read the biographies of Whitefield, Spurgeon, McCheyne, Edwards, Lloyd-Jones, and other great Christian ministers.
Praise for SAMUEL DAVIES: APOSTLE TO VIRGINIA
Dr. Rick Light, senior pastor at Eastern Heights Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Bristol, TN and Executive Director of Presbyterian Evangelistic Fellowship:
Dewey Roberts has given us this much needed volume on Rev. Samuel Davies. It is an outstanding book, superbly researched and excellently written! A must read for any serious student of church history in America. It is the first comprehensive work on Davies and gives helpful insights to his early life and ministry.
Rev. Ron Parrish, Associate Pastor at Independent Presbyterian Church, Savannah, Georgia:
Dewey Roberts’ volume on Samuel Davies is very much like Iain Murray’s biographies and perhaps even more like Arnold Dallimore’s George Whitefield. He draws you into the story and engages you spiritually.
