One of the Most Powerful Essayists and Sermon Writers that You Have Never Heard Of

Perhaps one of the most powerful Christian essayists, but largely unrecognised writer of the 20th century, is F.W. Boreham. Though he may not be known by most American or European missionaries, he is the best selling Australian author of all time, with many of his books going into their 24th reprint.

F.W. Boreham had a vision to go and serve as a missionary in China. However, he was physically challenged and walked with a limp, so Hudson Taylor personally squashed the idea. Instead, he contacted the great Charles Spurgeon and was accepted into his training program, where he excelled.

After his Bible training, he left England and went to preach the Gospel and pioneer churches in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia. It was during this time that he wrote some of his most powerful sermons in the forms of essays. They are powerful, descriptive, and unlike anything that you will find in today’s catalogue of writings.

For this podcast, we talk to F.W. Boreham expert and researcher, Geoff Pound. Geoff reveals what made F.W. Boreham such a unique writer and preacher and why his writings are still so powerful for the 21st Century reader.

Episode 589: FW Boreham – Live Interview With Dr. Geoff


Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
