About the author:
Over a hundred years ago, in the small town of Brockville, Ontario, Canada, Lawrence A. Meade (1891-1971) made his appearance in the parsonage home of Samuel and Rhoda Meade. This sixth child would someday be their fifth to feel the tug of God on his heart to full-time Christian ministry. Soon enough, L.A. strapped on his ice skates and skated down to Toronto where he would graduate from McMaster University Divinity College and begin his lifetime of ministry.
This youngest Meade son, Lawrence Adelbert, eventually preached before crowds filling a 3,000 person capacity tent. Beginning in 1914, he taught God's word faithfully for over 50 years with his devoted wife and helpmeet Lillian by his side. First he gained a solid reputation as a Scripturally sound traveling evangelist, and then as a pastor and founder of local churches. During his years of ministry, L.A. was commended by pastors across denominational lines as having the highest scriptural and personal integrity, as well as teaching that was compelling, inspired, sincere, and produced enduring spiritual growth.
God's blessing rested on the ministry of the Rev. Meade, and his teaching of God's Word was used to touch the hearts of many tens of thousands of people across the United States and Canada. Now those words are available for a new audience today in the form of devotional readings. Preserved for a generation and recently discovered, the Rev. L.A. Meade's writings have been edited and revised into a remarkable resource combining the tender nurturing mentorship of a grandfather with the educated approach of a true scholar of the Word. "Classic Christianity: A Year of Timeless Devotion" Vol. I and II are the first in this wonderful new set of resources to be made available!
Classic Christianity A Year of Timeless Devotions Volume I
Winter and Spring
Rev. L. A. Meade
Patricia Ediger, Cara Shelton
With gentle humor, the Reverend Meade broaches topics throughout Scripture with an evangelist's heart, a scholar's insight, and a grandfather's tender touch. His heart ached to see souls saved and lives mended. But, even further, his passion was to see Christians fulfilling their place in God's plan. Lawrence A. Meade was our "Papa." His life spanned the changes of both world wars and Vietnam, yet he shook the hands of Civil War veterans. In the days when the Rev. Meade preached, people were worried about impending war, financial problems, cultural changes, and the uncertain future. The same things concern people today. Yet because he stood fast on the timeless truths of Scripture, his words are as much for today as they were for yesterday, and they will be as much for tomorrow as they are for today. Gleaned from a lifetime of Christian service, these daily devotions will challenge and encourage, uplift and promote real growth. Each day's devotion is conveniently laid out in a two page format with a key verse, an expanded suggested reading, a meditation, and a prayer. The meditations provide profound insight deep enough for long-time Christians, plain enough for new believers and challenging for everyone. Classic Christianity is suitable not only for personal or family devotions, but also for teachers, bible study leaders, and pastors. An exceptional resource, Classic Christianity provides a foundation for spiritual growth for all who are searching to walk closely with the Lord.
