From Sam Laing’s Mighty Man Of God:

It was as if a fire was lit, as if chains were torn away, as if something deep and primeval in these men’s hearts had been touched, as if a part of their souls awoke that had long been sleeping. They sat up straighter in their chairs. They leaned forward to hear. Their eyes gleamed with desire; there was a fire kindled in their hearts. To a man, they responded to what they heard with joy, zeal and longing. They became better men by the mere fact of being challenged.
