According to Wikipedia, here’s some basic information about the preacher who delivered this famous sermon. It’s sort-of old-time Baptist in its style and delivery, but Rev. Lockridge certainly held a view of Jesus that is deep, broad, and beautiful. Enjoy.
Dr. S.M. Lockridge (born Shadrach Meshach Lockridge, March 7, 1913 – April 4, 2000) was the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, a prominent African-American congregation located in San Diego, California, from 1953 to 1993. He was known for his preaching across the United States and around the world.
