Autobiography of Peter Cartwright: The Backwoods Preacher, An American Methodist and Christian Revivalist of the Midwest

Sale price$17.83


Peter Cartwright, affectionately termed the 'backwoods preacher', tells his life story; a tale of adventure, hardship and inspiration for all who follow God's path. Born at a time when the USA was a newborn nation, Peter Cartwright experienced a formal conversion to the Christian creed at the age of fifteen while attending camp. Witnessing the power the Christian ministry in his fledgling country had to commit good, Cartwright became a devout student of the holy scripture and aspired to work as a preacher for a lifetime. Opportunity presented itself in the form of the Methodist Episcopal Church. An enthusiastic speaker, Cartwright preached for four years prior to being officially ordained; he tells of learning to exhort crowd members and move them to the service of God. From a young age, Cartwright placed his own moral convictions above the church's association with politics; what was wrong was wrong, even things enshrined in the law and government of a society.
