Relatively unknown today, Frank W. Boreham (1871-1959) was once “the man whose name is on all our lips, whose books are on our shelves and whose illustrations are in all our sermons.” His works were bestsellers in his own day, and crowds flocked to hear him wherever he preached. Pastor, writer, and husband and father, F. W. Boreham authored numerous works including A Bunch of Everlastings, The Luggage of Life, Mushrooms on the Moor, A Handful of Stars, etc.
With the republication of his out-of-print works, a new generation can now enjoy the exquisite beauties and untold wonders of his profound thought, colorful imagination, and his fervent devotion to Jesus Christ, the Lord of all.
First published in 1923, Rubble and Roseleaves is a collection of essays which provide an inspiring and thoughtful read for Christians of all ages and walks of life.
“F. W. Boreham is my favorite author. . . . I try to read a chapter of Boreham every day.”—Ravi Zacharias
“[Boreham] is my favorite author. I read a Boreham book every year, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.”—Ruth Bell Graham
“Of the books that have played the greatest role in molding me, I count many volumes by especially one writer: F. W. Boreham. He authored more than fifty books of essays and pastored congregations in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia. He was not a classical preacher, . . . but he was marvelous at seeing beauty in the simple things of life. He heeded John Wesley’s charge to young preachers to blend simplicity with sublimity, ‘the strongest sense in the plainest language.’”—Ravi Zacharias
