Samuel Porter Jones
an American Methodist Evangelist was born in Alabama and reared in Cartersville,
Georgia. Jones was a lawyer but was a drunkard. He trusted Jesus Christ
as Lord and Saviour, being stirred by his father's dying words. His
life was dramatically changed, preaching his first sermon one week following
his conversion. He went on to live a full and sober life, becoming one
of the preeminent evangelists at the turn of the century. He was known
for his crude wit, coarse stories, and opposition to the liquor traffic.
Thousands were saved and cleansed as a result of his ministry.
