Hyman Appleman was born in Russia and was reared and trained in the Jewish faith. He could speak many languages. The family moved to America in 1914, Appleman graduated with many honors from Northwestern University and from DePaul University... he received his license to practice law from DePaul Law School and was a trial lawyer in Chicago...1921-1925.
At age twenty-eight he was converted. His Jewish family then living in Chicago disowned him...his father said to him, "When your sides come together from hunger and you come crawling to my door, I will throw you a crust of bread as I would any other dog."
Feeling a definite call to preach, he attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas from 1930-1933.
In 1933, he was elected to be one of the State Evangelists for Texas; he faithfully ministered for eight years in this capacity for the Southern Baptist Convention. Later he launched into larger meetings, both in Texas and outside, and was soon spending some time year after year in a foreign country. His meetings were large meetings, with hundreds and sometimes thousands of conversions taking place.
Dr. Appleman made eight or nine trips around the world and several trips to Russia as an evangelist.
His schedule left one breathless. It was hard to find a day in his long ministry of fifty-three years that he was not preaching somewhere. He averaged two weeks at home out each year...His prayer life, hard work, and Biblical preaching reminded one of the Apostle Paul.
Dr. Appleman was the author of some forty books.
