354 – Dec. 20 – THIS DAY IN BAPTIST HISTORY PAST


December 20, 1822 – Samuel Green was born in Falmouth, England. We know little about his conversion to Jesus Christ and call to preach, but we do know that he was a Baptist pastor from 1844-1851. After that time he gave himself to the field of education and literary work. Being aware of the need of an educated clergy, Green gave himself to teaching at Rowdon College from 1851 to 1863 and served as President from 1863 to 1876. In 1876 he became editor of the Religious Tract Society in London and served in this capacity until his retirement in 1899. In this ministry he reached untold millions of the saved and unsaved alike with the gospel of salvation and the ministry of sanctification and edification. The name of Samuel Green is one of the most important names for the furtherance of the gospel in the nineteenth century.
