Frederic Farrar's Life of Christ. Farrar was a well-known British preacher who lived from 1831 to 1903 and served—among other places—as minister of London's famed Westminster Abbey and later as Dean of Canterbury. "His ability to blend historical details with biblical facts" drew huge crowds to listen to his sermons.
Farrar makes Christ's life on earth come alive. He puts you in the First Century. You feel as though you walk with that happy band that followed Jesus. You triumph, you toil, you weep and you suffer with Him . . . and at the end you stand amazed and joyous at His resurrection. (Farrar also sends you scrambling for your dictionary, at times, as he enlarges your vocabulary.)Short Bio of F.W. Farrar:
