Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well-written. Reads like a novel -- but it's all true.  Oct 20, 2005
This book is a biography of Ernest Reisinger, the founder of the US branch of the Banner of Truth trust. It was written by Geoffrey Thomas, who met Mr. Reisinger back in 1963 when he was giving speeches to student gatherings at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia (and who is currently a minister in Wales).

Brother Reisinger has been credited with helping the Southern Baptist Convention to return to its Calvinistic roots. Once he did a study on the history of the SBC, he discovered that one of its key early leaders, James Pettigru Boyce, was thoroughly Calvinistic. This was evident in Boyce's book, An Abstract of Systematic Theology. Once he made that discovery, he sought to make that book available to every SBC seminary graduate.

While the book is about Brother Reisinger's life, it is about two central themes in his life - a solid Christian foundation and patience (and that both must go together). From the days when he was witnessed to and discipled after his conversion by Elmer Albright, Ernie realized Elmer's steadfastness in praying for him. He was patient and never gave up on Ernie. Ernie also owned a construction company and made it pointedly clear that the industry taught him the importance of laying down a good foundation - especially when it came to presenting a sound gospel message and sharing it with other people. This foundation also came in handy when, in the course of studying Scripture, he could easily refute such heresies as Scofieldism and easy-believism. He was more concerned with quality over quantity: not just in the gospel he preached, but also with the literature he distributed.

Reisinger also developed some solid friendships during the course of his life. Among some of his closest friends were Dr D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, JI Packer, and Walter Chantry (who is now in charge of the US branch of Banner of Truth Trust). For the most part, these men were very sound in their understanding of true Scriptural theology - even though now Packer has compromised as the sun has begun to set on his life (when one considers his signature on the ECT document back in the 1990's).

While I don't consider the book to be completely exhaustive on Ernie Reisinger's life, it is very candid. It does show some of his shortcomings (who doesn't have any?) - especially his anger and irritability. On the other side, it shows his love and concern for lost souls. It amazes me how much Almighty God used this man to spread the Gospel and to spark a revival and interest in the Doctrines of Grace.

There is one man I am thankful whom the author never mentioned in this book - Billy Graham. When it came to presenting Gospel truth, Mr Graham and Ernest Reisinger are like Night and Day (and that parallel order was done intentionally by the reviewer).

I could go on about how good a book this is, but time cannot afford that to me. However, this much I will say: prepare to lose sleep. It reads so much like a page-turning novel. I plan to read it again when time permits.
An Outstanding Christian  Jun 5, 2003
This is a fascinating book about an outstanding Christian whose work covered the second half of the 20th century. The author, Geoffrey Thomas, has been his friend since they met at Westminister Theological Seminary in Philadelphia in 1963. For a period in his life Ernie Reisinger wandered far from the faith and abused alcohol. When he returned to his faith in Christ and loyalty to the church, Reisinger joined the Southern Baptist Church although he was reared in the Presbyterian Church. He is credited with doing much to bring that group back to a more conservative stance. Reisinger was a keen business man who did not seek ordination until later in his life. His gifts as a speaker made him a widely recognized preacher.
Early in his life Reisinger realized the importance of books in the spreading of the gospel. He sold and gave away an untold number of books, often assisting struggling students by providing the volumes they needed. His work with the Banner of Truth Trust led to their United States headquarters being located in his home town, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Readers may be familiar with books Ernie wrote such as Whatever Happened to the Ten Commandments? He was also the author of numerous pamphlets.
Because of the cold climate in Pennsylvania, the Reisingers moved to Cape Coral, Florida where they reached out again to troubled churches. They are now retired. Their son Donald arranges his work with book distribution so that he can assist in their care.
The life story of Ernie and Mima Reisinger is challenging and encouraging. The hardships of the family and the use made of failures as well as opportunities demonstrate what God can do through those who truly believe the gospel and practice what they believe.
Geoffrey Thomas is the minister of Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales. He is an associate editor of the Banner of Truth magazine.
