Reverend Frank William Boreham (1871-1959) was a Baptist preacher best known in New Zealand, Australia, and England. He became a Baptist preacher after conversion to Christianity while working in London. He was probably the last student interviewed by Charles Spurgeon for entry into his Pastor's College. After graduation, Boreham accepted a ministry at Mosgiel church, Dunedin, New Zealand, in 1895 and there began his prolific writings initially for the local newspaper. He later was a pastor in Hobart, Tasmania, and then on mainland Australia in Melbourne at Armadale and Kew. He wrote some 3,000 editorials that appeared in the Hobart Mercury every week for 47 years between 1912-1959, and others in the Melbourne Age. His works include: Mushrooms on the Moor (1915), Faces in the Fire and Other Fancies (1916), The Other Side of the Hill (1917), The Silver Shadow (1918), The Uttermost Star (1919), A Bunch of Everlastings (1920), The Home of the Echoes (1921) and A Handful of Stars: Texts That Have Moved Great Minds (1922).
