Baptist Heroes of the Faith (Vol. 2) Obadiah Holmes
by Evangelist Ted Alexander, D.D.
Obadiah Holmes was born in England in 1606 when King James I ruled. By the time he was grown, he left the persecution in England and found similar religious persecution in America. He was saved under John Clarke’s preaching and became a strong Baptist. Holmes was later severely beaten at the whipping post in the Boston Square for his stand for Truth. God upheld him, and his testimony affected many lives for good.
