Oliver Boyce Greene
1915-1976
Oliver Boyce Greene was born on February 14, 1915, in Green-
ville, South Carolina. He accepted Christ as his Saviour when
he was 20 years old. Five months later, the Lord called him
to preach, and, to prepare for this, he entered North Green-
ville Baptist College. After attending college for two years,
he entered the full-time ministry as an independent Baptist
evangelist.
        For 35 years, he conducted revivals all across Amer-
ica in churches and in his own tent, until failing health
forced him to stop. Also, he preached a daily radio broadcast
over a network which grew from one station in 1939 to 180
stations at his death. The Gospel Hour is still heard coast
to coast by his taped messages.
        Dr. Greene was a prolific author, writing and pub-
lishing many verse-by-verse commentaries on the Bible in ad-
dition to numerous sermon books and soul-winning booklets.
The soul-winning booklets were a literary form pioneered by
Dr. Greene, whose dream it was to see short, well-written,
and attractive booklets placed in the hands of hundreds of
thousands of people around the world.
        Dr. Greene was called home to be with the Lord on
July 26, 1976, but his work lives on. His influence will con-
tinue to be felt for years to come through his radio minis-
try, through the millions of soul-winning booklets currently
in circulation, but, most important, through the tens of
thousands of people he led to the Lord through his efforts.
