Announcing the first set of 7 volumes (1924-1931) of D.M. Panton's Dawn!

Our Authors

Kenneth F. Dodson

Kenneth F. Dodson was born of school-teacher parents, whose three sons are all Baptist ministers. During the Great Depression, all three boys graduated from Wabash College, while conducting evangelistic services each evening, when possible. Kenneth was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Tau Kappa Alpha (as a Public Speaking major) in spite of differences with some professors' liberal views.

Kenneth married a Baptist minister's daughter and was ordained to the Baptist ministry on the same day. God gave them four children: one daughter, a church organist and pianist; the second the wife of a Baptist pastor; one son, a high-school teacher; a daughter who graduated from both H.S. and college with highest honors, and helped her mother who has been a painfully crippled arthritic for many years.

Mr. Dodson saw God use the very areas expounded in this book in four difficult pastorates. In the last two, the First Baptist Church of Mishawaka and the Glen Park Baptist Church of Gary, Indiana, he saw God bring dissident groups of Christians back together in such a way that there was an average of one soul saved for every Sunday service for fourteen years. Now, he has been a full-time evangelist for many years, sharing with churches from New England to California the truth of "The Prize of the Up-Calling."

God graciously used the study and exposition of the "neglected areas" of the New Testament expounded in this book to transform the life of the author. In the process, hundreds of other lives were transformed and more than twenty-five splits within churches were healed. As a result, thousands of souls have been saved. This little book contains the scriptural key to real revival, but it will not work unless, through patient study and prayer, it becomes the key to an EXCHANGED LIFE, so that God's dear Son may have all the glory.

J. D. Faust

Pastor J. D. Faust was born in Columbia, South Carolina. He is currently the pastor of Kingdom Baptist Church in Venus, Texas. He is the editor of The Kingdom Alert newsletter.

Robert Govett

Robert Govett was born in England in 1813 and died at Norwich, England, in 1901. He enrolled at Worcester College at Oxford in 1830, received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Eaton in 1834, became a Fellow of Worcester in 1836, and received his M.A. in 1837.

During the years of his ministry, he became well known because of his brilliant deductive and analytical capabilities. There were few men who equaled him in his ability to use common practical sense (logic) to weed out any weaknesses in a point of debate, and he was fearless in pursuing a line of thinking for the purpose of bringing it to a close. He was of the opinion that the Scriptures should always be open to a fresh scrutiny based upon new light that might have been received and, because of this, as the years passed he became independent of many of the denominational views that which he had previously adhered.

G. H. Lang

G. H. Lang was born November 20, 1874 in London, England. He died at Wimborne, Dorset, England October 20, 1958. He was saved at a young age when he was seven and a half years old. His writings include fourteen major books and innumerable booklets. He once said, "No man should write a book until he is forty. He needs to prove his theories in practice before publishing." All but nine of his many books were published after he was fifty years old.

Martha Lever

Martha Lever expresses her lifelong passion for art and letter design through her beautiful watercolors and graceful calligraphy. Her love for the Word of God is evident in her work and Martha is delighted when her work has touched someone and helped bring them closer to God. The mother of two grown children, Martha lives in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband and their beloved dog, Auggie.

Philip Mauro

As far as twentieth century Christian figures are concerned, Philip Mauro stands out as one of the most captivating. After coming to a saving knowledge of the Lord in 1903, at the age of forty five, Mauro, a member of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States and one of the foremost patent lawyers of his day, began his "Testimony" of what was to him the most important event in his life.
The early twentieth century was a period of great expansion for many errors, such as Dispensationalism and Anglo Israelism. Rising to the forefront of Christianity's great struggle against these foes, he applied the preparation God had given him, and scored great victories for sound doctrine. As a result of his body of work, the following generations have been able to pick up weapons at the spot where he fell and continue the struggle for Truth, as it is to this day.

D. M. Panton

David M. Panton was a very able successor to Robert Govett’s pulpit at Surrey Chapel, Norwich, England. Panton was the founder and editor of Dawn magazine, a strong voice for deep scriptural and prophetical truth from 1924 until his death in 1955. Panton was well-known for his speaking and writing abilities concerning scriptural prophetical subjects. He was known as "The Prince of Prophecy."

G. H. Pember

George Hawkins Pember was born in 1837. He was educated at Cambridge University where he took his M.A. in Classics at age twenty-six. Upon his conversion to Christ, Pember determined to devote his scholastic talents to a close and comprehensive study of the Scriptures for the benefit of God's people. His penchant for meticulous scholarship, extensive knowledge of ancient cultures, and keen spiritual insight combined to produce works of a quality and depth with few parallels in Christian expository literature.
G. H. Pember died in 1910, leaving a rich legacy of reclaimed spiritual truth, upon which subsequent reformers such as J. N. Darby, Watchman Nee, G. H. Lang, and T. Austin-Sparks would build.
