As the oldest active pastor in New Jersey in the late nineteenth century, Elder Zelotes Grenell at the age of eighty-four years, was honorably recognized in William Cathcart’s immense biographical masterwork on the Baptists as one who “has been celebrated for the readiness in which any text or subject suggested to him falls into analytical order, so that he can preach from it in a few minutes.” Indeed, the extant record and the testimonies of his contemporaries highly commend his prolific life of sixty-plus years in vocational Baptist ministry. ---Jeff Brodrick
