Cal Morgan's biography of Pastor F.G. Bursey gives us a glimpse into an era of early Pentecostalism in Newfoundland that still lives in many hearts today. Readers of past generations will identify with the spiritual passion of a great man of God and the present generations will be challenged by this well-written story of his life. -Dr. Rev. Carl Verge, Former President, Eastern Pentecostal Bible College (MCS) Few figures in the history of the PAONL loom larger than F.G. Bursey.
