First Magazine reviews Faith on the Line

'FIRST', the official magazine for Faith Mission, has reviewed 'Faith on the Line', the true story of James Pratt, compiled by his grandson John Mollitt.

The article introduces James Pratt as a born and bred Yorkshire man.

“It is a very readable book, describing how he came to know the Lord Jesus and from that point sought to live out his faith to the ordinary folk he worked and lived amongst.”

Read the full review for an introduction to the life of James Pratt, how his faith began and where it led him in his work as a railway signalman.

“What stands out in this book is the legacy James Pratt has left his children and grandchildren: ‘A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children’ (Proverbs 13:22). His goal was not to gain any temporary inheritance, but to put time and energy into furthering the Kingdom of God. For him the secret to all of this was spending time with Jesus.”

About the Book

James Pratt, born in north England in the late nineteenth century, spent much of his life working on the railway. But whilst he was a signalman by profession, he was a preacher of the Word by vocation. For 70 years, he served the Methodist Church as a local circuit preacher, and preached Christ not only with words but also by example, holding fast to the gospel and timeless Christian values. He also took these values into the local community, contributing for over 40 years to the National Union of Railwaymen, and serving as a parish councillor.

As you read this story of an ordinary man whom God used to have a great impact for his kingdom, you too will find yourself encouraged to remain faithful to Christ in your own life and, as the apostle Paul wrote, to ‘run in such a way as to get the prize’.
