    Books Worth Reading

    Studies In The Sermon On The Mount by Oswald Chambers
    The Sermon on the Mount would bring us to despair apart from the work of the Holy Spirit. Oswald Chambers expounds on the meaning of these commands of Christ and shows us that Christ enables us to follow His teachings.

    Rose from Brier by Amy Carmichael
    Written not from the well to the ill, but from the ill to the ill, this book contains the treasures of Amy Carmichael's spiritual life during the final years of her life. This collection of poetry, short stories, and encouragement for fellow-sufferers addresses many aspects of human suffering and points us to Calvary as the only source of peace and comfort.

    The story of the Dohnavur Fellowship in Amy Carmichael's own words. An amazing testimony of the work of God.

    They Found the Secret by V. Raymond Edman
    This is a book about the exchanged life, the life that is of Christ. This collection of 20 short biographies of men and women who discovered the power of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit will increase your desire to experience the power of the Holy Spirit in your own life. The Christian life is, first and foremost, about a mighty, resurrected Lord whose Spirit can indwell and completely transform those who surrender to Him.

    My favorite biography of Amy Carmichael. Full of excerpts from Amy's writings, this well-researched book gives us a glimpse into the life of one of the great lovers of God.

    Release the Power of Prayer by George Muller
    George Muller testified that he had received at 50,000 specific answers to prayer. Read the powerful testimony of a man who looked to God for all needs and believed that God delights in the prayers of His children.

Here some interesting links from my recent bookmarks:

1. Seeing that it seems to be my lot in life to deal with fighting women, this article was very insightful. Today’s women are destroying and violating themselves with aggression. For the record, I completely agree with the author that femininity is a fragile thing that should be protected, not roughed up and trampled on. It’s a great article.

2. “We don’t need a self-help book, we need a Savior.”

3. For those of you who have been exposed to (or are tired of) the hype and obsession surrounding the Twilight books and movies, here are three great articles on the topic:

How Twilight is re-vamping romance
The trouble with Edward
Abstaining from the madness

4. “He that believes in the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved, be his sins never so many. But he that does not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ must be damned, be his sins never so few.”   – Thomas Brooks (Of First Importance)

5. Listen to a sermon by Richard Wurmbrand – “The Beauty of Nothing”. (37 minutes)

The Beauty of Nothing (Opens up Windows Media Player) Go here for more listening options or to download.

6. Two Christian prisoners in Iran have been released, but are still in need of prayer.

7. For all you frugal freaks out there, here’s a printable coupon database.

8. Vision Forum has everything on sale this week – be sure to check it out!
