Samuel Logan Brengle (1860 - 1936) was converted as a youngster. At fifteen years of age he became assistant Sunday School superintendent in his home church, and at seventeen he enrolled in DePaul University, where he proved to be a brilliant scholar and an eloquent orator. Political ambitions soon began to awaken in Brengle?s heart, but these were short-circuited when God called him to be a preacher of the gospel. From DePaul, Brengle went to Boston Theological Seminary. It was here that he experienced a life-changing experience of heart cleansing under the guidance of Dr. Daniel Steele. Soon afterwards Brengle refused the flattering offer of the pastorate of a large, renowned Methodist church, choosing instead to join the Salvation Army, where he spent the rest of his life as a traveling evangelist, writer and holiness preacher.
