He's been dead for 77 years, and Samuel Logan Brengle's influence was chiefly limited in his lifetime to the Salvation Army, a scrappy evangelical church as much as a social services mission, and to the relatively small cluster of evangelical Protestant congregations comprising the "holiness movement."
The New Testament’s last book, Revelation (no “s” on the end, please) has inspired all sorts of sermons, tracts, even entire religious movements aimed at provoking fear and repentance, when, one author says, believers should take comfort from its words instead.
"I have long mourned the fact that Brengle is little known outside the Salvation Army," Mr. Hostetler said. "Granted, that's an international movement with many, many thousands of members and adherents. But still, other than a few [others], his writings have been an undiscovered treasure outside Salvation Army circles for more than a century."
Taking the writings of someone who worked so long ago and updating them for a contemporary audience — Mr. Hostetler edited the daily entries for today's readers, he said — might be a bit of a challenge.
