"No one embodied American fundamentalism more fully - its militancy, its separatism, its insistence on doctrinal precision - than Carl McIntire. Add to that his puckish humor and his inventive knack for publicity and you have one of the most riveting figures in all of American religious history." Randall Balmer, Barnard College, Columbia University "I shall never forget his prayers - to me it was as if we were lifted into the presence of God. When he read Scripture, it was almost to have the Bible explain itself, interpret itself. He read it in such a way that its meaning unfolded to your understanding. I once saw a movie of a flower opening by slow motion photography. The petals of the flower opened right before your eyes. When Dr. McIntire preached, it was like that. The meaning of the passage blossomed before your eyes. You understood what the Bible was saying; you loved what it was saying. When he preached, the clock lost its hands. He preached with passion, with power, with love and reverence for the Scripture, he preached with clarity.... It was as if his lips had been touched with a coal of fire off the altar." Rev. Robert Anderson, who served for 38 years as pastor of the Tacoma Bible Presbyterian Church CARL McINTIRE led the 20th Century Reformation Movement in defense of the historic Christian faith and freedom. He was best known for his radio program, the 20th Century Reformation Hour; his battle against the Fairness Doctrine of the Federal Communications Commission; his newspaper, the Christian Beacon; his Bible conferences in Cape May, NJ, and Cape Canaveral, FL; for preserving The Independent Board for Presbyterian Foreign Missions; his presidency of the International Council of Christian Churches for over 50 years; his pastorate of the Bible Presbyterian Church of Collingswood, NJ, for 65 years; and for his lifelong work of alerting the American people to the dangers of Communism and false religion in the churches and of compromise among Bible believers.
