B. H. [Benajah Harvey] CARROLL INDEX

     In the days of John Chrysostom, the golden mouthed preacher, the people said, "It were better for the sun to cease his shining than for John Chrysostom to cease his preaching." Something of that same feeling must be in our hearts today as we are called to face the exodus of the greatest preacher our State has ever known. - George W. Truitt - Funeral Sermon of B. H. Carroll
     "He read an average of 1,000 pages a day for more than fifty years, and he remembered with remarkable accuracy everything he ever read." - J. B. Cranfill - The Passing of B. H. Carroll

     "There never was a man in the world without a creed. What is a creed? A creed is what you believe. What is a confession? It is a declaration of what you believe. That declaration may be oral or it may be committed to writing, but the creed is there either expressed or implied." - B. H. Carroll
     "Jesus said, 'The gates of hell shall not prevail against it.' I do not believe they have. They have never been able to convince me that the gates of hell have prevailed against the church. I believe that God not only has had people in all ages, but that he has had an organized people... I do not undervalue church history, but far more important to me than fallible human records of passing events is the New Testament forecast of church history. The former may err - the latter never." [From 'Colossians, Ephesians, and Hebrews' in An Interpretation of the English Bible.]
