L.P. Masters
He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman.
He grew up in another village, where he worked in a carpenter shop
until he was thirty. Then for three years he was an itinerant
He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never
traveled more than two hundred miles from the place where he was born.
He did none of the things one usually associates with greatness.
He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned
against him. He was turned over …

As recalled by John Carroll…
“One of the most memorable statements I ever heard Brother Holley make was this one, a sentence that seemed to burn itself into the core of my soul… He drew himself up to full height, his little chin went to quivering, and he said:”

the original version by Dr James Allan Francis
Let us turn now to the story. A child is born in an obscure village. He is brought up in another obscure village.
