About the Author
B. A. Ramsbottom has been pastor at Bethel Chapel, Luton, United Kingdom, for over 50 years.
He was born in Lancashire, where he worked as a teacher and an itinerant preacher before the call to the Pastorate at Bethel Chapel in the mid 1960s, taking up the office in January 1967.
Pastor Ramsbottom widely is known beyond Luton as the author of many books and for 45 years (1971-
The children’s books in his series about Jesus originated in monthly talks given to the Bethel Sunday School children. Several other of his books including Bible Doctrines Simply Explained; The King Who Would not Listen and Behind a Frowning Providence – which is a story of the life of Joseph. These all originated from either Sunday School or Pastor’s Bible Class addresses at Bethel Chapel.
For many years Pastor Ramsbottom served on Gospel Standard committees and regularly preaches at special services up and down the country, but he has always felt his first calling is to the church and congregation which meets at Bethel Chapel. His ministry has been notably and particularly valued for how He magnifies the Lord Jesus Christ, especially in His work of salvation and His glorious offices to His people.
