Author: Roberts, Benson H.
Compiled and edited by his son, Benson Roberts, this volume contains a selection
of Benjamin Roberts’ sermons and other works. B.T. Roberts delivered many of his
sermons at revivalist camp meetings, to which hundreds of Christians would come.
As well as calling people to commit their lives to Christ totally, he spoke on behalf of
worker’s rights, women’s rights, abolitionism, and the temperance movement. Unwilling
to compromise any of his convictions, he followed the leaders of the Holiness Movement
in breaking away from the Methodist Episcopal Church and forming the Free Methodist
Church. Roberts’ vision for transforming the world through Christian teaching has since
been memorialized in the name and vision of Roberts Wesleyan College.
