Product Description

complied by F.D. Srygley

Theophilus Brown Larimore (1843-1929). Raised in poverty and obscurity, Larimore was able to attend Mossy Crock Baptist College in Eastern Tennessee. He had a short tour in the Confederate Army. Assigned as a scout he was captured and sent to Federal headquarters. Soon after his release, he moved to Hopkinsville, Kentucky where he began to preach the Gospel. Between preaching, teaching and working as a logger he took a course at Franklin College under Tolbert Fanning, graduating as valedictorian of his class in 1867. After his marriage to Miss Ester Gresham, they determined to establish a school for boys and girls at Mars Hill, near Florence, Alabama. There were many men who graduated as faithful Gospel preachers from the school. After seventeen busy years, the school was closed because of the increasing demand for him to do evangelistic work. He traveled from Maine to Mexico, from the Carolinas to California, preaching twice a day and three times very Sunday. He held many gospel meetings which lasted for several weeks at a time, his longest meeting was at Sherman, Texas - beginning January 4, 1894, continuing twenty-two weeks and one day, where he preached three hundred and thirty-three sermons. In 1911, his evangelistic work took him from British Columbia to Eastern Canada, and from Mexico to Cuba. He preached regularly until 1929 when his health prevented him from traveling. He passed from this life March 18, 1929. Though he wrote no books, yet a number of books have been written about him.

This book is a combination of history, theology, and biography. It is a faithful account by brother Srygley of events that took place in the life of T. B. Larimore. This book brings out changes that took place in religious doctrines and customs in the 1800's. A good study of the past that should be helpful to those of us in the present. 320 pages..

    Theophilus Brown Larimore (1843-1929) was born in East Tennessee and raised in poverty and obscurity. While attending Mossy Crock Baptist College in Eastern Tennessee, he was mustered for a short tour in the Confederate Army. Following his release, he moved to Hopkinsville, KY, where he obeyed the gospel on his 21st birthday anniversary, July 10, 1864, and later began preaching the gospel in 1866. Between preaching, teaching, and working as a logger, he took a course at Franklin College near Nashville, TN, under Tolbert Fanning, graduating as valedictorian of his class in 1867. After his move to north Alabama and marriage to Miss Ester Gresham, they determined to establish a school for boys and girls at Mars Hill, near Florence, AL.
    There were many men who graduated as faithful gospel preachers from the Mars Hill school, including the author of this book, Fletcher Douglas Srygley (1856–1900). After seventeen busy years, the school was closed because of the increasing demand for Larimore to do evangelistic work. He traveled from Maine to Mexico, from the Carolinas to California, preaching twice a day and three times every Sunday. He held many gospel meetings which lasted for several weeks at a time, his longest being at Sherman, TX, beginning January 4, 1894, continuing twenty-two weeks and one day, where he preached three hundred and thirty-three sermons. For a while, he located in Louisville, KY, to labor regularly with a congregation there.
    In 1911, Larimore’s evangelistic work took him from British Columbia to Eastern Canada, and from Mexico to Cuba, and he preached regularly until 1929 when his health prevented him from traveling. He passed from this life March 18, 1929, at Santa Ana, CA, in his 86th year. This account by one of his students of events that took place in the Larimore’s life is a combination of biography, religious history, and doctrinal studies, bringing out changes that took place in religious doctrines and customs during the 1800s. Srygley also edited Letters and Sermons of T. B. Larimore, Volume, originally published in 1900 by the Gospel Advocate Publishing Company. Another similar book by Srygley about a different pioneer preacher is Seventy Years In Dixie: Recollections and Sayings of T. W. Caskey and Others.
