Love that was Stronger – Lilias Trotter of Algiers

I.R. Govan Stewart, The Love That Was Stronger. Lilias Trotter of Algiers

The story of the pioneer missionary Lilias Trotter, who travelled in North Africa where no white woman had before gone, begins in the days when Moody and Sankey stirred Britain and America with virile spiritual life. The unfolding of her experience which reached to the deep things of God,and the beauty of her life should be known to a generation which is characterised by breadth rather than depth of knowledge. The real fascination of the story is the strength of her love for the Son of God.
