Description

Thomas Walker (1859-1912) was a missionary and fiery revival preacher in India. He went to South India with the CMS (Church Missionary Society) in Tirrunevelly from 1885 until his death in 1912. Walker mastered the Tamil language, was well versed in Indian poetry and classical literature and left a rich literary legacy including the translation of many hymns into Tamil. He was a powerful preacher and helped form many evangelistic traveling groups. While he faced much opposition from Hindus he also saw sparks of revival, especially in 1905-1906. He was a mentor and teacher to Amy Carmichael and encouraged her in her work among temple girls and women. - 39 chapters - Includes photographs of Walker - Fully edited - not a scanned copy of an old book!show more
