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.
