Joseph Hocking (1860-1937) was a Cornish novelist and United Methodist Free Church minister. He regarded fiction as a highly effective medium for conveying his Christian message to the public, and combined his writing with his church duties, until ill health forced him to resign from the ministry in 1909. Over the course of his career, he was the author of nearly 100 books. Although largely forgotten now, he was tremendously popular in his day. Bleiler (1978), p. 100. Reginald 07262.
