Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


John Henry Jowett was one of the most beloved preachers of the early 20th century. His sermons boasted a fine balance of practicality, expressiveness, and depth of knowledge; Jowett had a rare ability to relate to almost every congregant from his pulpit. The 1907 issue of British Weekly, after surveying its readership, ranked Jowett as Britain’s “most appealing preacher,” over and above even F.B. Meyer, G. Campbell Morgan, and others. Jowett’s The Passion for Souls is a must-read devotional book for any Christian sharing the Gospel, whether abroad, at work, or in the neighborhood. Christ called his disciples to be “fishers of men,” and Jowett reaffirms this calling for Christ’s modern disciples. He reminds Christians of what it means to live as a disciple of Jesus, and offers relevant wisdom acquired from decades of service.
