Brook, William a minister of the Bible Christians, was born at Northlew, Devonshire, England, in 1839. At the age of sixteen — during a gracious revival — he was converted. He became a lay preacher in 1855, and entered the travelling ministry in 1865. In 1878 he was necessitated, on account of feeble health, to take a supernumerary relation. He died December 30, 1878. His sermons were sound in doctrine, lucid in statement, impressive in delivery, and were proclaimed in demonstration of the spirit and of power. See Minutes of the Annual Conference, 1879.
