Author of Book About RTS Founder to Hold Book Signing in Jackson

Looking for a meaningful Christmas present?  You can’t do better than a copy of How Big is Your God? The Spiritual Legacy of Sam Patterson, Evangelist.  Meet the author Rebecca Hobbs, and get a signed copy at Lemeuria Bookstore in Jackson, on December 10, from 3:00-6:00p.m.

Incredibly well-researched and written, the volume traces the life of a beloved Christian who dedicated his adult life to serving Christ by reclaiming souls for Christ. Not only does the book explore the vast influence of a compelling educator, pastor, and evangelist, it also details for the first time the founding of Reformed Theological Seminary, the primary catalyst in the formation of the Presbyterian Church in America. It is no exaggeration to say that Sam Patterson's vision and drive changed the face of southern Presbyterianism.  Exhaustively researched with never-before-seen documents, this book will be a resource for church historians for years to come.

Patterson’s 17 years at French Camp Academy detail the strong influence he had on young children with problems not of their own making. The chapter on evangelism shows vividly how God used “Mr. Pat” so effectively in leading large numbers of men, women, and children into eternal life with Him. 

Enjoy voluminous bits of history and countless moving vignettes told in a warm, sincere, and often humorous way.  Much more than a “one-time read,” the book contains chapters with a wealth of material from Patterson's sermons -- especially on prayer and evangelism -- that are suitable for Bible classes, family devotions, or personal study for all ages.
