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

I am filling out an application for a bible college (I will give more details to SI later) but they had a very hard question to answer for myself:

[i]Please list the three Christian books (other than the Bible) that have most influenced your life. Provide both title and author:[/i]

Here were my choices:

[b]Why Revival Tarries[/b] Leonard Ravenhill
[b]Methodist Hymn Book[/b] Various
[b]The Memoirs of Murray McCheyne[/b] Andrew Bonar

It would be interesting to see yours?

Why Revival Tarries Leonard Ravenhill


I have just purchased this book and can't put it down! My heart litterally feels it's on fire as i read it and is causing me to turn to the Lord in prayer. I want to draw closer to God in prayer and to pray with tears, REAL tears! Even when i go through those dreaded dry seasons i want to be able to push through and keep praying for revival, for my family, my pastor...
What an inspiring, life changing book drawing you deeper into THE book! Im still on chapter sixteen but it will be unquestionably my book number 1.
2.Knowledge of the holy A.W.Tozer
3.? I have to think on this for a while, i just wanted to share my enthusiasm ;-)
(Before i discovered SI i had never heard of Leonard Ravenhill and he's from Leeds not far from here!)
