 Saint Patrick was an evangelical preacher and is often said to be a man of One Book! He never appeals to the authority of any creed, ecclesiastical leader or council, but in his writings, few as they are, he quotes from 113 scriptures. It has been commented that from his constant emphasis on the Bible, that Patrick sounded like a 5th century Billy Graham, “ The Bible says, the Bible says.”

It is interesting to note here that Billy Graham is of Scotch Irish descent and his ancestors came from County Down and County Antrim in Northern Ireland where Patrick built his first church.
