 Recommend a book?

If you could recommend a book (other than the Bible) for someone that is very hungry for God; what would you recommend?
I've got most of Ravenhill's books.

I realize this is a vague question, but I thought I would poll you guys to see what you recommend.

Thanks!

There are so many great books to recommend.. I would probably suggest books that would challange and strech you to see the depth and width of the glory and love of God. Here are a few older volumes that will take some disclipine to read but will proof to bear much fruit in your life:

The Complete chrisitan armor by William Gurnall
The memoirs of Robert Murray Mcheyne by Andrew Bonar
The Life and Diary of Andrew Bonar
The Journals of John Wesley
The 2 Volume set of Wesleys sermons.
The Life and Diary of David Brainard.

 Re:

I like the New Covenant by David Wilkerson...

But the Best book is The Book Written by GOD

So my #1 Choice is The BIBLE :-P

 Re: Recommend a book?

I think every Christian should read 'Holiness' by J.C. Ryle.

Also check out EM Bounds on prayer (especially 'Power Through Prayer')

'Revival Lectures' - Charles Finney
'Master's Indwelling' - Andrew Murray
biography of CT Studd - Norman Grubb
'Rees Howells Intercessor' - Norman Grubb
'The Enduement of Power' and 'The Revival We Need' by Oswald J. Smith
'George Muller Delighted in God' - Roger Steer
'The Pursuit of God' - AW Tozer
'Being God's Friend' - Spurgeon

Sounds like you've found the best in Leonard Ravenhill (he's my favorite) and others have recommended David Brainerd - another great one!

Also check out collections of John Wesley's sermons and the writings of Jonathan Edwards (particularly 'Religious Affections')

Theology texts are good and commentaries are useful but these and others like them are life changing!

Enjoy. :)

 Re: Another great book list

These can always get me in trouble...
The list keeps getting expanded by all the suggestions.

A.W. Tozer
~ Knowledge of The Holy
~ The Pursuit of God
~ everything else :)

All the others listed, though some have still not gotten to ...yet.

But personally right now...

Oswald Chambers ~ The Complete Works
It's [i]huge![/i]
And more than just the number of pages, the depth and riches...

 Re: Recommend a book?

A coulpe of months ago I read "With Christ in the School of Prayer" by Andrew Murray.

And I have to say that it is the best book or my most favorite book apart from the bible.

I saw someone had as a recomendation the biogaphy of David Brainard I just got it a couple of weeks ago and I can not wait to get in to it... Well I can until I am done with two other books first.
