 Great books about deeper life

I read Power Through Prayer by E.M. Bounds last week (great book) and am reading The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee at this time. I plan on reading Tozer's The Pursuit of God sometime in the near future.

My question is, what are some great books (beside the Bible of course) that have influenced your walk with Christ?

 Re: Great books about deeper life

Hi Brother,

Those are some great books you have described. I would say here are some that have heavily influnced my life:

Why Revival Tarries by Leonard Ravenhill
Looking Unto Jesus by Isaac Ambrose
Letters of Samuel Rutherford by Samuel Rutherford
Fair Sunshine by Jack Purves
The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter
True Discipleship by William Macdonald
The Calvary Road by Roy Hession

so many others but that is a start ;-)

 Re: Great books about deeper life

You must also read Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer :-)

 Re:

I've read My Utmost For His Highest. Very good. I was trying to find Why Revival Tarries on the web earlier. Can anyone tell me a good place to buy it online?

 Re:

Hi Joe,

I recommend "The Christian in Complete Armour," by William Gurnall. I don't think you'll find a more superb treatise on the topic of spiritual warfare.

Bro. Paul

If you are shopping for books online, Amazon is usually linked to a large selection of used or discount sellers that carry their titles well under retail. Here is [url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0871236079/qid=1153088558/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/102-1179971-3725766?s=books&v=glance&n=283155]Why Revival Tarries[/url] starting at $2.71.

 Re: Great books about deeper life

Presently I am reading - for the second time in a week - the book "I Dared to Call Him Father" by Bilquis Sheikh. It is a testimony of a high born Muslim woman who reads the Bible and what happened to her as a result. The lessons she learned are those that teach us as well.

Have you done it? And how do the Muslims respond?

In the current issue of "World" magazine there are two articles "Brothers to the End" and "Quiet Currents" that deal with Muslims converting to Christianity. The concepts discussed are right in line with Bilquis Sheikh experience.

IN "Quiet Currents" the writer quotes Mofid Wasef "After interviewing 72 MBBs from the middle east, Europe, and the United States, he narrowed their experiences of conversion into three primary and typically overlapping catefgories: visions, media outreach, and the Bible."

Fascinating read. It is an encourager to us who many times dispair with the apostasy we see in the western world.

Kind of got off track from the original question, didn't we?
