about

From the author's preface:
The stories and sketches composing “Pen Pictures” I have written as I did “Pastoral Sketches” and “A Journey to Palestine,” with a view to interest, while benefiting the head and heart of the reader. In my judgment it is my best literary work. At the same time there is scarcely a chapter but has a moral or religious point, and so presented as to abide in the memory and affect the life. Flashlight revelations of character, the law of conscience, the power of human influence, kindness to animals, consideration for children, pity for the unfortunate, and many other lessons of life are taught in this volume. A number of the chapters are descriptive of actual adventures in the life of the writer; but still in the narrative an underlying purpose is felt, and a lasting moral or spiritual truth conveyed. Some people need to have a good laugh, Some crave the luxury of tears, and others ought to pray. We doubt not that these three classes will find all they want in the pages of this volume.

About the author:

Beverly Francis Carradine (April 4, 1848 – April 22, 1931) was an American Methodist minister, and a leading evangelist for the holiness movement. He was a productive author, writing primarily on the subject of sanctification.

He served in the Confederate Cavalry during the American Civil War, and later in his lafe studied pharmacy and also worked in a store as a clerk and bookkeeper.

Unlike many ministers, Carradine was not converted to Christianity until the age of 26. He was licensed to preach only three months later, and continued in the service of God for the remainder of his life.

He was a prolific author, and wrote more than two dozen books. Throughout his life, he was influential in the holiness movement, and continues to be a blessing generations later.
