We think of E.V. Hill as a preacher par excellence, and that he is; but there is more—much more—to this African American who still calls himself “Negro” in defiance of all political correctness in the 21st century!
As Pastor Hill has told us, “It’s a long way from a log cabin in Sweet Home, Texas to the White House,” and that is also true; but that journey has brought him there many times as six presidents have sought his counsel. In fact, President Ronald Reagan offered him a prestigious government post, which Pastor Hill declined, saying he could not step down from his higher calling.
From a youth that picked cotton, abandoned by his father, and handed off to friends who reared him, E.V. Hill fought years of racial prejudice to become one of the most celebrated conservatives of his race. But to those of us who know and love him, he is far more than Time magazine’s “Pulpiteer of the Century”; he is a father to the homeless, a feeder of the hungry, a home for unwed mothers, and a caring pastor without peer.
In this historic book Pastor Hill will best be remembered as an ardent soul winner who will ever be honored for his classic sermon preached at the historic Coral Ridge Presbyterian church. The topic was, “Why I’m Glad to Be Saved.” His first point was simple, yet profound: “I DON’T WANT TO GO TO HELL!” The ripple of reverent laughter was testimony of the fact that the profoundness of the truth had gotten through. The souls that filled the altar confirmed the truth.
