First self-published by the author in 2001, The Gate Seldom Found dramatizes the true story of a little known Christian fellowship that flowered late in 19th century Canada. The saga opens in southern Ontario during the blizzard of January 1898. Alistair Stanhope is shaken by the untimely death of his best friend, causing him to question his faith. Unable to find the depth of spirituality he is seeking within his church, he and his wife, Priscilla, begin to meet with a close circle of friends for support. From these small intimate gatherings comes an awakening that touches many lives with the simplicity of following Jesus Christ.

About the author (2004)

Raymond Reid has lived his entire life in the area of Guelph, Ontario, the setting for The Gate Seldom Found. His grandparents were profoundly involved in the house church movement as early as 1906, giving him many opportunities to meet the itinerant preachers of whom he writes. As a boy he often sat wide-eyed across the breakfast table regaled by anecdotes of their rich and colorful experiences.
