Biographical Note

John Thomas Mawson (1871-1943) was a gifted and much-used evangelist, open-air preacher, teacher and writer. Born in the North-East of England, he edited Scripture Truth magazine, along with other brethren, from its inception until his home-call. He travelled very widely preaching and teaching in England, Scotland and Ireland, as well as visiting North America, the West Indies, South Africa, and the Antipodes. He seemed to have a gift to get alongside folk — young and old, rich and poor, clever and simple. His book 'How to Overcome' was one of the earliest books I read, and could truly be described as formative. His writings remain clear and accessible to a modern generation. There are over 400,000 words from more than 2,000 pages in these writings; there is some duplication, but the magazine section adds about another 1,000,000 words in 600 articles to these statistics.
See also the sketch in the Hymns section.

How Will It All End?
You might gain the celebrity of a Napoleon – the wealth of a Westminster – the fame of a Kitchener – the learning of a Ruskin; but then Time ends, and with Time ends the meagre satisfaction that these things give. The soul is for Eternity, and in Eternity men will find that not all who were famous here are blest there. They will find that many who wore the professor's gown here are fools there; that wealth of this world is not current in Eternity, nor will it purchase a mansion in the sky. But, thank God, He offers salvation to all, and what men's attainments cannot purchase, Christ's precious Blood can. You will be wise if you turn to Him TO-DAY. J. T. M.
