G.H. Lang (1874 - 1958)
Read freely text sermons and articles by the speaker G.H. Lang in text and pdf format.Was a noted Bible teacher, prolific author, and biblical scholar of his time. Of his Christian contemporaries, Lang was influenced by the writings of G.H. Pember, C.H. Spurgeon, A.T. Pierson, and George Müller. Today, G.H. Lang is remembered as one of the few Bible expositors who, in the past 150 years, saw the 'ground of the church'. He argued that the ground of the church is essentially related to the practical oneness of all the believers in Christ.
Lang was born in Southeast London, England. His mother died shortly after Lang's birth, and he was raised under the influence of his Christian father. Lang made a profession of the Christian faith and dedicated his life to Jesus Christ at 7-years-old. Early on, Lang affiliated himself with the Exclusive Brethren; but later in life, he affiliated himself with the Open Brethren. Later in Lang's life and teachings, he challenged Darby's "federation view" of the church and stressed the local fellowship's autonomy and independence. To read and obtain published materials by G.H. Lang you can visit the ministry of Schoettle Publishing.
