    So, I was at the library a few weeks ago and picked up a book from the free table and it's by this guy Wimberly. It's from 1916 and he was some sort of preacher. I picked it up because it's so interesting how reading it is like reading old WT's and Golden Ages. It's full of the same rhetoric from the times of Russell.

    I've tried to find some info. on this guy but have only been able to find this book for sale at different places. It's worth about $50. so I'm glad I picked it up! :)

    Anyhow, anyone ever heard of him???

    This may be one for Blondie or Leolaia.....

    Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but a google search for Pastor C F WImberly gave me a few results.

    This link tells you that he was a pastor at a Methodist Church in Missouri.

    I also found this don't know if this is the piece of work you already have, but maybe it has more insight.

    Other then that, nope, never heard of the guy.

    Whjle the WTS likes to think they were different back then, the language, doctrines are very similar. Remember that many religions were thinking that the rapture, end, etc., was near based on some of the same chronology Russell used.

    BSOM googles are basically what I found.

    Books possibly by him as well

    The Cry in the Night

    Is the Devil a Myth

    New Clothes for an Old Man

    The Making of a Preacher

    Vulture's Claw

    Fulfilled Prophecy
