About the Author
Walter Lewis Wilson was born May 27, 1881, in Aurora, Indiana. He was "the preacher" whenever neighborhood children played church, and later held evangelistic street meetings at the age of 16. After medical training, he began practice as a physician in Webb City, Missouri, in 1904. Everywhere he went, he told people how Jesus Christ could transform their lives. Soul-winning characterized his life, and he used every possible tool to accomplish it. A pioneer in radio, he initiated his own program in 1924. He founded and for 40 years pastored Calvary Bible Church in Kansas City. Wilson also founded and served as president of present-day Calvary Bible College. He wrote twenty-two books and traveled widely as a conference speaker. Wilson passed away three days before his 88th birthday in 1969.
