About the Author
Lettie Burd Cowman (1870-1960) worked as a missionary with her husband, Charles Elmer, in Japan and China from 1901-1917 during which time they were instrumental in founding the Oriental Missionary Society.
Due to a serious illness, Charles was forced to return to the United States, where Lettie nursed him for six years until his death in 1924. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nation-wide Scripture-distribution campaigns and wrote seven books. After an extended illness, at the age of 90, she laid her earthly mantle aside on Easter Sunday, 1960, her coronation day.
