“Lawrence B. Hicks was known—first, foremost and always— as a preacher of Second-Blessing Holiness. With his plentiful use of colorful adjectives and classical references, the rhetorical skills of this pulpiteer lent a force and sweep to his preaching that could only be achieved by study that was both wide and deep. But there was more— much more— behind the successful sermons. Hicks enjoyed a relationship so close to his God that the unction and might of the Holy Spirit permeated his messages.” – from the book “A Little Bit of Heaven” published by Schmul Publishing Co.
