H. A. Ironside (1876–1951) is one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers. He has received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was frequently invited to lecture at Dallas Theological Seminary.
After a serving as a Salvation Army officer for a brief period, Ironside joined the Plymouth Brethren and started what would become a highly successful itinerant ministry of preaching and teaching. He served as pastor at Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and preached more than 7,000 sermons during his lifetime.
Harry A. Ironside produced close to 100 major books and pamphlets, mainly on expository and prophetic themes. He was a major figure in the popularizing of dispensationalism among American evangelicals and for the most part followed the views of the Scofield Reference Bible. Ironside’s first-edition commentaries, most-loved sermons, addresses, lectures, and tracts are available in The Works of H. A. Ironside (65 vols.).
