An Interview with Thabiti about Lemuel Haynes

Reformation Heritage Books interviews Thabiti Anyabwile about his new book,
May We Meet in the Heavenly World: The Piety of Lemuel Haynes. Here's one exchange:
Lastly, if you only had a couple of sentences to encourage someone to read this book, what would you say?

A. If your thoughts and your heart has grown dull, perhaps a little complacent and worldly, read this book as one tool to turn your mind back to your first love. If you want to be encouraged by some consideration of what God is able to do with a life of great disadvantage (abandoned by both parents at infancy; raised an indentured servant; etc), read this book and trust that God may do even greater things through those desiring to be used of Him.
