Criswell: His Life and Times


How does a young man, born in Oklahoma, and growing up in Texline, on the New Mexico border with northwest Texas, rise to become the pastor of one of the greatest churches in America — leading it to become at one time the largest church in America? O.S. Hawkins takes a look at the life of W.A. Criswell. 

O.S. Hawkins sat down alone with Dr. Criswell and a video camera more than a quarter of a century ago to hear his life story so that one day Hawkins could write a book on the Baptist statesman. The book is not a hagiography, but a look at a man who in his day had no peer.
