The Navy Surgeon by Samuel J. Cassels
Dr. Charles Broughton, the subject of this biography, recounts through letters, when he came to Christ on board a man-of-war ship down near Key West, Florida. Illustrating the power of prayer, God poured his grace not only on Dr. Broughton but also six other members of his family who had become Christians while he was away. He portrays saving grace by taking up the cause and the spiritual development of his fellow seamen.
