 Re: Books who shape your FAITH

Hi, If you love to read Andrew Murry then you will love "The Power of the Spirit" by William Law (edited by Dave Hunt). Andrew Murry edited it first under it's original title called "An Affectionate and Earnest Address to the Clergy". He said that he urged all to read it, and that he had never found a written work so powerful and complete concerning the "Life of god within us".

My "other" favorite book is The biography of Robert C. Chapman by author Robert Peterson. He was a close friend and mentor of George Mueller and Hudson Taylor. Spurgeon said of Robert Chapman,"He is the saintliest man I've ever known".

You can find both of these books at www.the

I also love to read Andrew Murry's books, and George Mueller's biography has surely shaped my faith! But we must not forget about John Bunyans "Pilgrim's Progress", we would be poor indeed without it!

The William Law book was great. If I could recommend two books other than the scriptures I would recommend "Rees Howell: Intercessor" by Norman Grubb and "Remarkable Miracles" by G.C. Bevington. These books are meaty and will serve you well...

"All of Grace" - C.H. Spurgeon - Good overview of the Gospel.

"Morning and Evening" - C.H. Spurgeon - The best "daily devotional" I have seen.

"The Godly Man's Picture" - Thomas Watson - Puritan book on the characteristics of a godly man.

Matthew Henry or John Gill's Bible Commentary (both available online for free reading... Gill's is at

"Religious Affections" - Jonathan Edwards - A fantastic overview of true and false faith and their signs.
