An artist and nurse, Alicia Lambart (1818-1913), the daughter an English Earl, was married to the Reverend James Stevenson Blackwood in 1849. During the Crimean War (1854-1856) the Blackwoods ministered to the soldiers and their families in Istanbul, Turkey at the Scutari Barrack Hospital. It was during this time that Florence Nightingale personally delegated Lady Alicia as overseer of a ministry to the widows and children of the Scutari soldiers. Most of her publications are out of print today, so we feel very privileged to have obtained this rare gem entitled Seven Strong Towers, penned by Mrs. Blackwood in the late 1800’s.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
