William Ellis Foy was an African-American minister of the nineteenth century whom history had generally overlooked. The Unknown Prophet demonstrates that Foy received powerful revelations from God about coming tribulation, judgment, and heaven awaiting those who were faithful to God. Foy’s message was straightforward: be faithful, because Jesus is coming again.
The research in The Unknown Prophet clears up misconceptions about William Foy. It tells the largely unknown story of this sensitive young man who faced incredible trials and struggles, yet faithfully fulfilled his time-specific prophetic commission during the height of the Millerite movement. He went on to maintain a quiet and productive ministry until his death in the late nineteenth century.
William Foy’s story, his ministry and message, still speaks today. This volume provides hope and encouragement for the twenty-first-century reader. It contains new and valuable documents and images, including the only known photo of William Foy’s son.
