Francis Kyle has told the story of Taylor's remarkable, short life in an accessible manner. He has also probed very helpfully the way in which Taylor's spiritual experience made a crucial contribution to his ministry.--Ian M. Randall, Lecturer in Church History and Spirituality, Spurgeon's College, London, England
An encouragement that God gives light to every generation and sometimes in the form of radiant believers like J.B. Taylor, a firebrand whom Francis Kyle presents to us in these pages.--Kelly Monroe Kulberg, Editor, Finding God at Harvard and Author, Finding God Beyond Harvard
A classic example of high quality Christian biography, both accurately based on the past, and illuminating for the present. To quote Taylor, 'We need more uncommon Christians; that is, eminently holy, self-denying, cross-bearing, Bible, everyday Christians.'--Peter Adam, Principal and Lecturer in Theology and Preaching, Ridley College, and Canon, St. Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne, Australia
An Uncommon Christian rescues from the ranks of half-scanned footnotes and the rarely-perused pages of academic bibliographies a genuine 'Christian hero' who inspired so many of his nineteenth-century American contemporaries. Any attempt to gain an understanding of the depth of 'lived evangelicalism' in the early-to-mid nineteenth century will be enriched by this recovering of Taylor's role as an inspirational beacon of piety and fervor.--Larry Eskridge, Associate Director, Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals, Wheaton College
Scholarly writing that speaks to both the mind and the heart. It is a significant addition to the literature on early American revivalism.--Robert E. Coleman, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Some of the brightest lights in the church have been obscured by the forgetfulness of succeeding generations. Those interested in the history of revival will now rejoice over Francis Kyle's recovery of one of the great evangelists of the Second Great Awakening.--Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
Most of us who look at the stars in Christian history occasionally find a new one in the galaxy. With me, this has been the case with J.B. Taylor. With meticulous scholarship, Francis Kyle makes James Brainerd Taylor come alive and hopefully take his well-deserved place among evangelists of the early nineteenth century.--Roy J. Fish, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
ATS first published a memoir on Taylor's life in 1833. ATS is now pleased to endorse the reading of Francis Kyle's 'memoir' to Christians in the 21st century.--Daniel Southern, President, American Tract Society
History and biography make the best devotional reading! Francis Kyle has written a moving and powerful account of Taylor's short but influential life. I recommend it highly to all who long for the next revival.--David Epstein, Senior Pastor, Calvary Baptist Church, New York City
Having worked in university ministry for over two decades I have persistently sought to inspire Christian students with examples of how consecration and calling might find expression during the college years. In this, I have often instanced J.B. Taylor but lamented the limited availability of accounts of his life. May the circulation of Kyle's study kindle afresh not only an interest in Taylor but that 'uncommon' faith and fervency which is so honoring to Christ and so needed in our day.--Jon Hinkson, Co-Founder, Rivendell Institute for Christian Thought and Learning at Yale University
