A. J. Gordon (1836–1895) was Pastor, Evangelist and Writer. He was the founder of Gordon College in Boston Massachusetts. He wrote many books, including: In Christ, The Two-Fold Life, The Ministry of the Spirit, How Christ Came to Church, and many others. He set Monday mornings aside to publishing his own monthly, the Watchword, and focused on devotional enrichment. He saw the church he pastored completely transformed into one of the most spiritual and aggressive churches in America with an unsurpassed effort in missions.
