Gordon, S.D.: Quiet Talks on Prayer. V1. 12-Mar-2011
Samuel Dickey Gordon was a popular speaker and writer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
He was born in Philadelphia August 12, 1859. As a young man, he was hard working, consecrated and sought the best God had for him. He served as assistant secretary of the Philadelphia Young Men's Christian Association in 1884-86 so efficiently that he became state secretary for the YMCA in Ohio, serving from 1886 to 1895. In this period he developed a quiet style of devotional speaking which was quite the opposite of the powerful forensics which dominated the pulpit style of that period.
Gordon never lacked for opportunities to preach. He wrote more than two-dozen devotional books, most with the phrase "Quiet Talks" in the title.
