Publisher Comments:

Arthur Tappan Pierson (1837-1911) was the elder statesman of thestudent missionary movement and the leading evangelical advocate offoreign missions in the late 1800s. "Occupy until I Come, the first biography of Pierson in more than a century, explores the life, thought, and legacy of this major figure in American religious history.Working from the best available sources, Dana Robert illumines therelationship between A. T. Pierson's role in the surging foreign missionsmovement and the development of nineteenth-century evangelicalism.Pierson was famous in his day as a Bible teacher, a leader in Keswickholiness piety, and an urban pastor who cared passionately for the poor.An original editor of the "Scofield Reference Bible, Pierson also carried on atransatlantic preaching ministry that made him famous in Scotland andEngland.In covering both Pierson's career and his context, this book is not onlythe finest available biography of A. T. Pierson but also a valuable portraitof America's religiouslandscape at a key point in history.
