Randolph Sinks Foster, 1820 - 1903
[Mentioned in No and Yes, p. 27]
Randolph Sinks Foster, Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, entered the ministry at the age of seventeen, having been persuaded to leave Augusta College in Kentucky. He later regretted this step, but his own talents and diligent study made him an able preacher and vigorous writer. His first writing to gain attention set forth his objections to Calvinism.
After spending some years in the ministry in West Virginia and Ohio, he went to New York City. When elected bishop, he was president of Drew Theological Seminary. As bishop, he traveled widely. His closing years, passed near Boston, were devoted to writing. Foster had no use for ecclesiastical politics and was always outspoken. His preaching was marked by breadth of outlook, intellectuality, and deep emotion.
