Presidential Scholar: The Ministry and Influence of Dr. Herman Hoyt
One of the men that is being presented as part of the Revived Classics Series is Dr. Herman Hoyt. For those of you who do not know him, I thought I would give you a short introduction to who he was.
In 1936, Herman Arthur Hoyt penned the following words, which were to be the expressed convictions of his life and ministry for nearly five decades:
There is no greater authority than the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no more ample faith than the whole Bible with every doctrine it contains. There is no more complete life than the life which appropriates the blessings of God, presents itself to God, separates from the world, and is transformed in His presence. There is no more perfect set of ordinances than those of the Word.
Hoyt was born in Greenfield, Iowa, on March 12, 1909, the oldest of 10 children. He grew up in Dallas Center, Iowa, graduating from Dallas Center High School as valedictorian of his class in 1927. Following high school graduation, the entire family moved to Ashland, Ohio, where he enrolled at Ashland College. During his college years, he married his childhood sweetheart, Harriet Lucile Fitz, on Aug. 30, 1930. They had two sons, Joseph Paul and Edwin Max.
