Book debuted on June 29, 2010New Book About The Late Dr. Manuel Scott Sr. Debuts At Calvary Baptist Church
The late Dr. Manuel Scott, Sr. pastored at Calvary Baptist Church in Los Angeles for 33 years, so it is fitting that a new book of his most memorable sayings, The Quotable Manuel Scott, Sr: Words From A Gospel Genius, debuted at his former church on Tuesday, June 29th.
Dr. Manuel Scott, Sr. had a phenomenal way with words, always striving to "make it plain." As Dr. Jerry Young, Vice President-At-Large of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. put it, "Without exception, Dr. Manuel Scott was a profound, prolific and penetrating preacher who had the unique ability to preach with unparalleled clarity and conviction." Dr. Scott authored two books, From A Black Brother and The Gospel For The Ghetto.
Dr. Manuel Scott, Sr. was twice named one of America's 15 Greatest Black Preachers by Ebony Magazine as well as Outstanding Minister Of The Year by the Los Angeles Business Association. Dr. Scott also served as President of the Western Baptist State Convention Of California for four years (1977-1980) as well as Secretary Of Evangelism for the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. for many years.
To compile this collection of sayings and sermons from this gospel genius, Dr. Scott's eldest son, Evangelist Manuel Scott Jr, pored over his father's books, sermons, and lectures, and solicited quotes from some 40 preachers and pastors as well as relatives and former church members who knew him well. The Quotable Manuel Scott, Sr ($15) contains nearly 500 quotes from Dr. Scott. "We need to gossip the Gospel." One of Dr. Scott's seven full sermons in this book, "Gavel Grabbers Or Gospel Carriers?" delves into the root causes of turmoil in our local churches: "They keep asking me, 'How did you stay at Calvary for 33 years?' I knew gavel grabbers!"
The Quotable Manuel Scott, Sr book sold out the first night of the revival at Calvary Baptist Church. A crowd gathered at the table to have their books autographed by Evangelist Manuel Scott, Jr. Many bought several copies.
