Jimmy Hamilton got saved in 1975 in his mid-thirties. “In coming to Christ I was broken, in great distress. I called upon his name and he rescued me” (30). And from that moment he has desired to tell others about his Lord and Savior, “I’ve been a street preacher for thirty-eight of my forty years as a Christian. ” (30).
Now 75, Jimmy Hamilton continues his peripatetic (an English transliteration of the Greek word meaning “itinerant”) preaching ministry, daily sharing Christ on the streets of his native Glasgow, Scotland. And having just written his first book, he clearly has no plans to slow down yet. “The Lord called me to preach the gospel,” he writes, “so I’ll stop when he tells me to stop or when he calls me home” (202).
