In The Shadow of Grace: The Life and Meditations of G. Campbell Morgan

September 26, 2011

In the Shadow of Grace (Baker Accademic, 2007) members of G. Campbell Morgans family have joined with the faculty of Chicago Theological Seminary that houses the G. Campbell library to create a short 121 page work celebrating the life and work of one of the greatest Bible expositors of his generation. As a avid reader of Morgans works I was somewhat familure with his story but this book helped him come more fully alive and multidimensional. Using previously unpublished letters, sermons, and personal family memories the difficulties, challenges and personal issues are explored in light of how they influenced his treaching and pastoring. Of special interest to me was a large section of a sermon Morgan preached upon turning 50 (my next birthday). The theme of the book is summerized in a quote from Morga himself, ” Inevitably there comes a crisis, sooner or later….in which we are brought to the appalling sense of our own…weakness. That is a great hour”. Chapter 5 was especially fascinating as it dealt with Morgans response to the Titanic sinking and the outbreak of a world war and Morgan’s attempts to pastoraly guide his flock through those difficult times of crisis. This book will be both informationaly rich and spiritualy uplifting to all who read with an open heart.
