 Re:

Great poem at the beginning of it!

[b]Tis not for men to trifle;
Life is brief and sin is here.
Our age is but the falling of a leaf; a dropping tear.
We have no time to sport away the hours;
All must be earnest in a world like ours.
Not many lives, but only one, have we.
One, only one.
How sacred should that one life ever be; that narrow span
Day after day filled up with blessed toil,
Hour after hour, still bringing in new spoil.[/b]

 Re:

Has anyone else read this book. I am going to read it a second time. May God imprint these things on my soul and mind and beyond that give me the burden and unction that hortious bonar wrote these words from.

It has made a castaway of many a man whom God once richly blessed. A man should desire to be neither larger nor smaller than pleases God. Better than that, he should not bother at all about how large or how small but rather how faithful he shall be." - Vance Havner

 Re:

I listened to the recording. It was very very good. I would recommend it to anyone.

 Re:

Praise God,

Brother I believe this book is very important especially for those in ministry these days. May God get it into the hands of the people that God wants. I am going to try and photocopy and distribute this book as much as I can.

 Re:

A friend of mine just ordered the book for me and I will soon have it in my hands. I can't wait to read it. My friend got a copy of it for $2.00 on amazon. I can't believe they get rid of such treasures for so little. Works out for us though.

I will give feedback once the book has been read on my part. Peace.

 Re:

Quote:
The lukewarm ministry of one who is theoretically orthodox is often more extensively and fatally ruinous to souls than that of one grossly inconsistent or flagrantly heretical. "What man on earth is so pernicious a drone as an idle minister?" said Cecil. And Fletcher remarked well that "lukewarm pastors made careless Christians." Can the multiplication of such ministers, to whatever amount, be counted a blessing to a people?

 Re:

The book is excellent. I recieved it about 4 days ag. It is great. I have one chapter left. The Ministerial Confession chapter is by far my favorite. It is interesting how my favorite stuff now is things that rub my face in the ground. HAHAHA!

I highly recommend this book. Get it!

I think it's because the sellers are humble 8-)

Also, God makes it easy for us to have revival, but many aren't willing to just give a little effort :-(

Thanks for the thought provoking statement YeshuaIsMyGd!
