Beverly Carradine- biographical information
Rev. Beverly Carradine
was an especially gifted early evangelist and prolific author
of the Great Awakening. During those days a Holiness
evangelist mixed and matched two types of message and altar call.
One altar call was for sinners to obtain their pardon in
salvation. The second altar call was for believers to obtain
their heart-purity in His Rest. Through this he became an
experienced midwife to many thousands
of souls coming into His Rest.
In my opinion he is outstanding for reference today since he uses
many homely human and natural examples to get his points accross.
This is especially important today since we have been exposed
to so much knowledge, that just plain common-sense has become
uncommon. The abundance of unsanctified teachers have now
spread fog over this precious work of finishing grace that is so
thick that today few find their way through it.
