Ten Shekels And A Shirt
Paris Reidhead (1919-1992) served with the Sudan Interior Mission during the 1940’s. During that time, he came under conviction that the modern approach to evangelism was driven by utilitarian and humanistic philosophies, deeply rooted in the free will and autonomy of man. After returning to the United States, he served as an itinerate preacher in association with the Christian and Missionary Alliance movement. He is best known for a sermon entitled, “Ten Shekels And A Shirt”, the substance of which was delivered to a congregation impromptu. Although he was not a High-Calvinist, yet there is much in his sermon which aligns with that position.
