Negro Servant & the Black Prince

Negro Servant & the Black Prince

by Legh Richmond

The first story, "The Negro Servant", is authored by Legh Richmond. This pastor's warmth and tenderness toward his people comes through loud and clear as he touchingly conveys this beautiful conversion story which he witnessed in his own town. In times of great prejudice, this story was a warm demonstration that Christ welcomes all peoples to Himself. The second story, "The Black Prince", shows how life often does not turn out as expected for those who commit their lives to serve the Lord. Positions of power and earthly advantage, even for those in royalty, do not prevent the plans of God from coming to pass according to His own will! This volume also contains "The Troubles of Life", a short story of how those who rely on the Lord have secret resources to draw on, in times of difficulty, that self-sufficient men of the world can never possess. The book concludes with "Patient Joe", a touching poem about a man with confidence that God worked all things together for good even when events crossed his hopes and expectations.
