This book is a selection of 19 talks given by Gipsy Smith which will provide inspirational reading, and be a source of help for speakers and teachers. There are also 20 "Two-Minute Sermonettes" at the end. Rodney "Gipsy" Smith was born in a Gipsy tent in Epping Forest, England in 1860. He was the son of gipsies, Cornelius Smith and his wife Mary. Growing up, he had to help support the family by making and selling items like clothes pegs around the area. He only had a few weeks at school one winter, and was unable to read or write. One day his father Cornelius came home to say that he had been converted, and was now a Christian. Cornelius helped bring his son to the Lord, and from that moment, Rodney wanted to share the way of salvation with others.
He quickly learnt to read fluently and was soon into fulltime evangelism, where he became known as Gipsy Smith, a name he accepted gladly. He preached throughout England, before travelling to America and Australia, and to Europe during the First World War to comfort the troops. Wherever he went he was a much-loved and powerful preacher, bringing thousands to the Lord. Gipsy Smith's earlier autobiography, My Life and Work published in 1901, is also available from White Tree Publishing as an eBook.
