Publisher's Summary

Tom Haire is a rare compound of deep, tender devotion, amazing good sense, and a delightful sense of humor. There is about him absolutely nothing of the tension found in so many persons who seek to live the spiritual life. Tom is completely free in the Spirit and will not allow himself to be brought under bondage to the rudiments of the world nor the consciences of other people. His attitude toward everyone and everything is one of good-natured tolerance if he does not like it, or smiling approval if he does. The things he does not like he is sure to pray about, and the things he approves he is sure to make matters of thanksgiving to God. But always he is relaxed and free from strain. He will not allow himself to get righteously upset about anything. "I lie near to the heart of God," he says, "and I fear nothing in the world." 

It is not with Tom Haire the Irishman that we are concerned here, however, but with Brother Tom Haire, the servant of Christ. So fully has he lost himself in God that the text "not I, but Christ" actually seems to be a reality in his life. I think I have never heard him quote the text, but his whole being is a living exemplification of it. He appears to live the text each moment of each day. After two years of growing acquaintance with and increasing appreciation of this man of faith, I concluded that I owed it to the Christian public to share with them some of the good things God has given me through His servant Tom Haire. I have long felt and still feel that the practice of writing up living men and spreading them before the public is questionable. Especially is it bad when new converts are seized upon as gospel propaganda and paraded before the world as evidences of the truth of the Christian religion. Converted cowboys, opera stars, and such have so completely captured the attention of the Christian public that it has become increasingly difficult to hold a sober view of the faith of our fathers.

Was Saddened to Hear it End

A very intriguing story, indeed. was disappointed for it to come to an end. What a pure and refreshing individual, that Mr. Haire. Would've loved to sit and talked to him for some time.

Great read

Great orator and even greater story. Awesome representation of what it looks like to have a completely organic relationship with the Father. One dictated solely by Christ and not rules, systems or molds. Will be listening to over and over.
