The Pious Collier
 

John Angell James, (1785—1859) was a decided Calvinist in doctrine, and beautifully balanced his theological convictions, with practical piety in life and ministry. He preached and wrote to to common man and woman of every station in life. He was held in high esteem as a preacher and author, yet he was a humble and unpretentious man, as is evident from his unwillingness to use the title "Doctor of Divinity" despite the fact that he was honored with this degree by both Glasgow University and Princeton Seminary.
