Harry A. Ironside
1876-1951
Bible teacher and preacher. At the age of 12, Harry A. Iron-
side heard Dwight L. Moody preach, but he did not receive
Christ until two years later. His own words were, “I rested
on the Word of God and confessed Christ as my Saviour.” From
that moment on, the Word of God seemed to be like a burning
fire in his bones, and he gave his first public testimony
three nights later at a Salvation Army meeting. Shortly af-
terwards, he began preaching and became known as “the boy
preacher of Los Angeles.”
        Although he had little formal education, his tremen-
dous mental capacity and photographic memory caused him to be
called “the Archbishop of Fundamentalism.” A prolific writer,
he contributed regularly to various religious periodicals and
journals in addition to publishing over 80 books and pam-
phlets. His writings included addresses or commentaries on
the entire New Testament, all of the prophetic books of the
Old Testament, and a great many volumes on specific Bible
themes and subjects.
        For 18 of his 50 years of ministry, he was pastor of
the Moody Memorial Church in Chicago. He went to be with the
Lord on January 16, 1951, while on a preaching tour in New
Zealand.
