"Living on the borders of eternity" were the words Samuel Davies used to describe his feelings of being a physically sick man who didn't have long to live. Davies was advised by his physician to give up hope of continuing his ministry in Virginia. He refused to give up at 23, and for eleven years made a remarkable impression on multitudes, leaving a legacy unmatched in his time, and by few since.
