Overview


Do you ever think big things for God? Born into a wealthy family and endowed with a large inheritance after the death of his father, Henry Parsons Crowell had many opportunities to try his hand at business, a passion that suited him well. His shrewd business sense eventually brought him to the top of the oatmeal business, and to the potential for even greater wealth, if only he would compromise his values. But Crowell was a man of integrity and compassion.

Read this compelling story of a man who, in his youth, struggled with a debilitating and life-threatening illness. He was a man who survived the loss of two wives, a man who faced opposition in almost every venture he engaged upon, and a man who, through it all, thought big things for God. Whether it was in his home-based Bible studies, his business lunches with great leaders, his work to rid the city of Chicago of debauchery, or his contributions to the Moody Bible Institute, Henry Parsons Crowell was a man who above all sought to share Christ with those around him. See how the vows Crowell made as a young man to give glory to God through his stewardship came to fruition in this inspiring biography of one of the faithful men of God.

Read an Excerpt


There was a special meeting at the Second Presbyterian Church in Cleveland. A fiery businessman turned evangelist had been invited to speak. He was mostly unpolished and a self-educated man but he had a dynamic message.His name was Dwight Lyman Moody."Now, I want ya to know," Moody said loudly, "I like to think big things for God! Do you?" He paused to let his words sink in."And what about you?" "That's right. What about you? Do you ever think big things for God? Huh?"Moody continued. "The reason I like to think big things for God is that He deserves it. Now, whether it's evangelism, or your work, or your money. Whatever it is, you ought to think of big ways you can be used for God. Now let me tell you 'bout this feller I met in Ireland.""That feller I met in Ireland was Henry Varley. Lemme tell you what he told me. Varley sez t'me, The world has yet to see what God can do with and for and through and in a man who is fully and wholly consecrated to Him.'"~~~~~~~~~~~Father God, Harry prayed silently, these have been Your words to me. I can see that you can use me. Mr. Moody said I don't have to be an educated man, or brilliant, or anything. Just a man. Lord, by Your grace and with the help of the Holy Spirit, I'll be that man.
