Biography Works by


Benson Howard Roberts was the son of Rev. Benjamin Titus Roberts. From 1860 to his death in 1893 Benjamin Roberts edited and published The Earnest Christian, an independent family magazine similar in character but, some would say, journalistically superior to the more widely known Guide to Holiness.

Following the death of the Benjamin in 1893, Benson compiled from his father's editorial writings, which had extended across a third of a century, a book with the title Holiness Teachings.

Title / Description

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.
