Criswell: His Life and Times – O.S. Hawkins

When the name W. A. Criswell is read or heard, certain thoughts come to mind. 
Many likely remember him as a president of the Southern Baptist Convention, or the founder of the Criswell College in Dallas, Texas, or the senior pastor for five decades of one of the largest Baptist churches in America, or even one of the key figures during the Conservative Resurgence. 
All of these are acknowledgments of the importance of the life of Criswell, but these do not necessarily capture who he was as a man, as a husband, as a father, as a friend and mentor.
O.S. Hawkins was closely mentored by Criswell and was his pastoral successor.
He joined us to share some great takeaways from Criswell’s life!
