Abstract

Autobiographical Sketch of Charles Price Jones Founder of the Church of Christ (Holiness) U.S.A. Charles Price Jones This autobiography of Charles Price Jones (1865-1949), written in 1935, reveals the life sojourn of a Holiness preacher who composed the texts and music of over one thousand hymns and anthems. Although Jones shares with us the pivotal hour when the Holy Spirit informed him that he would write the hymns of his people, he says very little here about his music ministry. Jnfact it is not far into the essay that his autobiography actually becomes a history of his church. Yet the value of the piece is that it discloses the experiences which contributed to the development of his theology and the consequential bequeathal of a vast and rich corpus of hymnody to the Christian church.· I was born in Texas Valley, near Rome, Georgia, December 9, 1865. I was reared at Kingston, Ga., between Rome and Atlanta; and the greatest religious influences in my life were Miss Ada Dawson, who came there from Columbus in 1874 or '75, and the Reverend Humphrey Daniels, my mother's pastor at Shiloh Baptist Church in Kingston.
