Smith Wigglesworth: Apostle Of Faith by Stanley H. FrodshamAn inspiring account of a simple man with an extraordinary faith
Before word got out that a plumber in Bradford, England was performing miracles and wonders, Evangelical faith healer Smith Wigglesworth (1859-1947) was living a quiet life. His message was simple: the Bible was the only book that anyone need read, belief in the healing efficacy of Jesus Christ would cure anyone. Like Saint Paul before him, Wigglesworth traveled near and far healing the sick and the lame and winning thousands of converts for Christ.
Frodshams laudatory biography has what you would expect from a book of this kind: the miracles and testaments of dozens of people who had lost all hope before giving their life over to God. While the stories are certainly amazing in themselves, I found the real contribution of Frodshams account to be in the how. In the subtext of many of the chapters and in two chapters in particular (His Secret of Spiritual Strength and The Challenger), Wigglesworth explains how God is able to do these extraordinary things in women and men. No spoiler alert here because youve heard it all before: Belief in and obedience to the Word of God. Faith can move mountains.
