“Cliff Barrows is a devotional man and he a great sermonizer—some of the better sermons I had in the earlier days Cliff gave me. And he’s a man of prayer; in fact, he and I talk on the phone during a Crusade every day and we hardly ever hang up but what we have prayer together on the phone. Cliff is a great personal blessing to me and inspiration to me.”
