The Everlasting Arms

Published by:

This short work by the founder of Christian Endeavor Societies offers hope and encouragement to persons who are weary, depressed, and burdened. Author Francis Edward Clark was a prominent Congregationalist minister in Boston, Massachusetts, and graduate of Dartmouth College and Andover Theological Society. In 1881 he founded the Young People’s Society of Christian Endeavor to encourage the young people of his church to get involved in short-term ministry projects. By 1908 the organization had more than 70,000 chapters and 3.5 million members and is still in existence today.
