To save one soul from eternal hell…

Then [Charlie] Peace (the notorious Sheffield criminal when he was about to be hung) is recorded to have said, “Sir, if I believed what you and the church … say you believe about heaven and hell—even if England were covered with broken glass from coast to coast, I would walk over it, if need be on my hands and knees, and think it a worthwhile living just to save one soul from an eternal hell like that.”

James Emery White, from Serious Times, p. 161
