Frederick Brotherton Meyer (1847-1929) was an English Baptist clergyman. He was born in London and educated at Brighton College. Between 1870 and 1895 he held several successful pastorates. Between the years 1872 and 1874 he met American Evangelist D.L. Moody and introduced him to the British churches. During much of Meyer's ministry he engaged in social work and temperance work. He headed a movement to close saloons which was the force in closing nearly 500 immoral houses. He also labored for the reclamation of released prisoners. In 1904 to 1905 he served as president of the National Federation of Free Churches, and thereafter was evangelist for that organization, conducting missions in South Africa and the Far East. For many years he was closely associated with the Keswick Conferences. F. B. Meyer wrote over 40 books, including Christian biographies and devotional commentaries on the Bible. In 1918, Meyer, along with seven other clergymen, was also a signatory to the London Manifesto asserting that the Second Coming was imminent.
