Marshall - A Man Called Peter

A Man Called Peter is Catherine Marshall's story of her famous husband, a poor immigrant who rose to become Chaplain of the United States Senate. Published in this 7th Printing in 1951 by McGraw-Hill, New York, the hardbound book is the luminous personal story of a man whose whole life was dedicated to God and his fellow man.
Included are a number of his prayers and sermons that had not been previously published. It tells his story - and the story of their life together. It is record of love and faith that has few equals in real life and it is a book which brings alive the magnificent sincerity with which Dr. Marshall brought God into the affairs of men.
No intellectualized theologian, Peter Marshall was a dynamic individual who drew many of his ideas for prayers and sermons from his own life and experience. His approach to life was broad, and the enthusiasm that characterized his approach to religion was equally strong in his enjoyment of football and baseball; his irrepressible good humor cropped up as often in his sermons as it did in his vigorous participation in games and of all kinds.
A great man and a great book! Condition is Very Good, with some corner wear on the covers. A gift inscription to the previous owner is on the front endpaper. The dust jacket is present, but is in serious need of repair, with edge, corner and spine end damage. Still, the value here is inside - and it's a good one! (1629)
