Enjoying an intimate relationship with Christ, Thomas Charles worked tirelessly preaching the gospel, educating the poor to read the Bible, then obtaining Bibles in Welsh and other languages for people to read. There is much to learn from Charles’s commitment to Christ and His church, his love of the Bible and awareness of divine providence as well as his experience of genuine revivals. As we learn about Thomas Charles’ life and faith may we follow his example in communing intimately with our risen, exalted Lord and proclaim Him passionately to the whole world.

Eryl Davies is an elder at Heath Evangelical church, Cardiff and a member of the Management Board of the Evangelical Movement of Wales. He pastored churches in South and North Wales before becoming the first principal of what is now Union School of Theology. He continues to serve churches and conferences and to write.
This is a brilliantly written little book about a person who deserves to be better known than he is today … The book will inform, challenge and encourage twenty–first century Christians and churches worldwide. Buy it, read it and see for yourself!

In this heart–warming book on the life of Thomas Charles, Eryl Davies helps us get a glimpse into the providence of God that changed not only one life, but the lives of many, many others around the world. Exploring his conversion, lessons learnt at university, a romantic pursuit that lasted nearly a decade, opposition, struggles, loss, illness, and revival, this is a book that will encourage and challenge.

Eryl Davies not only shines a light on an undervalued hero of the faith; he lets the reader taste Thomas Charles’s own love for Christ and the Scriptures. May the Lord use this to raise up more like him.

May this highly readable biography encourage us to pray for the birth and growth of the Church amongst indigenous groups across the world today who are discovering that God speaks into their lives in the language of their heart too.
