Item description for According to Your Word: Morning and Evening Through the New Testament: A Collection of Devotional Journals 1940-1941 by Stephen F. Olford...
Overview Legendary preacher Stephen Olford's historic World War II-era collection of quiet time devotions, based on each New Testament chapter, is a remarkably focused assemblage of passionate, historical, and inspiring text.
Late pastor Stephen Olford, often called "the preacher's preacher" and a great influence upon Billy Graham, was just twenty-two years old in 1940 when he began a unique devotional study of the New Testament. Living in Wales amidst the intense turmoil of World War II, Olford commenced reading and writing every day and night about each chapter from Matthew 1 through Revelation 22.
Nearly seventy years later and four years after his passing, Olford's quiet time notes are gathered in "According to Your Word," a remarkably focused collection of 260 devotions that are uncommonly passionate, historical, and sure to inspire all who will read them now.
