Along with Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights leaders, Taylor organized the Progressive National Baptist Convention and was its first president. He was the author of many books. Gardner Taylor was even received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Above all, Gardner C. Taylor was a bold, powerful, and eloquent preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is remembered as “the dead of American preachers.”

One of my favorite Gardner Taylor Messages is entitled, “In His Own Clothes,” based on Mark 15:20. The following is a clip of this classic message. Enjoy!
