 Re: The top 3 books that have influnced your life (other then the bible)

1.The Christian in Complete Armor
by William Gurnell / Forward by David Wilkerson

(Abridged version / in 3 volumes using contemporary English)

The most perfect usage of the English Language to reveal God's Word of Spiritual Warfare - how to see it-how to deal with it-how to use the different pieces of the armor of God to use inorder to experience the victorious life of a Christian Soldier of the Lord.
I agree with David Wilkerson that this will revolutionize your life!!!

2. The Spiritual Man
by Watchman Nee

This is the only book that Watchman Nee actually wrote. It is essential to read to understand how God breaks us and Brother Nee explains in simple English what we are going through and he holds our hand as God chissles away at us until we are utterly destroyed and the likeness of Jesus begins to appear. Ouch and Amen!

3. Remedies Against Satan's Devices
by Thomas Brooks
Info on how Satan attempts to trouble us and the variety of remedies to combat and overcome these molesting attacks.

The 3 books that influenced my life are which are difficult to condense it down to just 3, there are so many.

Now that I believe - Robert A Cook
Evangel For Christ - Apostle Franklin Walden
Ever Increasing Faith - Smith Wigglesworth

Others are Kathryn Kuhlman's books.
Christ object Lessons - Ellen G White
Bill Drost the Pentecost - Bill Drost

 The top 2 books that have influnced your life (other then the bible)

1. "No compromise" life story of Keith Green-by Melody Green
This was an opportunitiy to learn about the man behind the powerful music. Words and deeds in agreement– where I want to be.
2. Chasing the Dragon-Jackie Pullinger
This book just broke a lot of barriers in how I thought God ought to work. Led me to begin praying for the leading of the Spirit, to respect again the gift of tongues and see the ministry of the Holy Spirit in a new light.

The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell

Smith Wigglesworth Devotional

John G. Lake His Life, His Sermons, His Boldness of Faith

I never heard of Ravenhill until i came to this site.

The leadership book was quite great, it got me addicted to reading. The devo, even though i didnt agree with everything it said (i.e. rapture), it was very much a faith sturring. Then John G. Lake, wow, But like he left the methodist church, and i left the baptist. So thats how i relate. But John G. Lake always said 'God's Healing isn't a mystery it's SCIENTIFIC'. His town was named the 'healthiest city in the World' according to Washington D.C. He did miracles that NO1 could object to, like 'under a x-ray thing or something'.

Mind boggling.
