BOUNDS, EDWARD MCKENDREE (1835–1913)
American Methodist Episcopal minister
Bounds’s early education was in law, but after a brief period of legal practice he left the legal profession for the ministry. His years as pastor were spent in Alabama, Tennessee, and Missouri. He served during the American Civil War as a captain in the Confederate Army. And for nine years Bounds served as editor of the St. Louis Christian Advocate. He is probably best known for his devotional classic Power Through Prayer. D. M. Lake
