| heart searching and provoking books|
Hello, I would of corse encourage you to make the reading of Gods word # 1.
I myself,find it sometimes easyer to want to read a good book that i might relate too, easyer then i would the Bible.I have been convicted about the time i spend reading books,when i could of been reading the word or on my knees in prayer.
The books i would say have spoke wisdom would be:
christian in complete armor:William Gurnall
journey to hell:John Bunyon
pilgrims progress: John bunyon
all of grace: Andrew Murry ? or charles spergon?
so so many.

May I recommend,
Evidence Not Seen, Darlene Deibler Rose
This is the true story of a young American missionary woman courage and triumph of faith in the jungles of New Guinea and her four years in a Japanese prison camp. Never to see her husband again, she was forced to sign a confession to a crime she did not commit and face the executioner's sword, only to be miraculously spared.
A close friend relates, "She often spoke of passing the time of her imprisonment by 'putting the needle down on the tracks of her mind and playing back the Scriptures she had memorized.'"

Here is all 3 volumes of the Spiritual Man. Looks nicely laid out.
I had heard that Watchman Nee later said that he wished he had not written the Spiritual Man, because "it was too perfect". Not sure what he meant by that. I am going to try and find that quote and his explanation about that statement.

Just found the quote.
At the time of writing it he felt this work might be his last contribution to the church, although since then God has graciously overruled. Long after the books initial publication in Chinese our brother once was heard to express the thought that it should not be reprinted because, it being such a perfect treatment of its subject, he was fearful lest the book become to its readers merely a manual of principles and not a guide to experience as well.

Thanks Blandina. I only put up the one chpt, having in mind some recent discussions, but that page 'is' nicely laid out that you've posted.
It came from this page below that has many more books that are also a contribution to our cyber-libraries. I've been looking for more e-books to download for when I'm off the net. Thanks again!
