    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.

    No Graven Image by Elisabeth Elliot
    The fictional story of a young single woman missionary who is given the enormous task of starting a work among the Quichuas of the high Andes. As she begins her life as a missionary, she quickly learns that she is supposed to project an image of herself as a successful, spiritual missionary. Then something happens that shatters that image and she learns to put no created image, no matter how "spiritual", in the place of God.

    The 1599 Geneva Bible
    The original 1599 Geneva Bible with notes written by the reformers. Nothing has been updated except the spelling. This translation is characterized by simple and beautiful language that is surprisingly understandable even to modern readers.

    Aunt Jane's Hero by Elizabeth Prentiss
    The heartwarming story of a Christian couple seeking to establish a home whose happiness flows from a beautiful relationship with the Lord Jesus. Biblical truths about marriage and family life are interwoven throughout this lovely story.

    Gold Cord by Amy Carmichael
    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.

    Toward Jerusalem by Amy Carmichael
    A collection of poetry and songs written for those who are about the King's business.

    His Thoughts Said. . .His Father Said . . . by Amy Carmichael
    The thoughts of a child of God are often troubled and questioning. The Father has an answer to all of them.

    A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot
    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.

Fragrant Fragments # 10

April 15th, 2010

I haven’t shared links for a while, so I have quite a collection today. Enjoy!

1. Sound Asleep. ”As our nation arises this morning from a sound sleep I would like the opportunity to awaken us all from another type of ‘sound sleep’ that is subtle, dangerous and destroys.”

2. The Message behind the Method. A look at the conflict between Whitfield and Wesley over the subject of predestination.

3. Watch this video about the prison in Romania where Richard Wurmbrand was imprisoned.

4. To Be a Disciple. “When your heart was opened to the tremendous reality of your sin and the Cross and you knew Christ as your Redeemer, Lord, and King, what did you reckon yourself to be?”

5. Read the April issue of Challenging Femininity.

6. I don’t really care what other people think. ”As many of you know, my husband and I lived on beans and rice while he was in law school in order to stay out of debt. It wasn’t easy–especially when many others around us were living extravagantly when they had no money to do so.”

7. The Importance of Refinement. ”Refinement is the quality of being careful of manners and speech around others at home, in the church or the community. If a person is refined, they will not blurt out just any rude thing to others, especially to their elders.”

8. Be soft of voice.

9. The truth about women that feminists don’t want you to know. ”The recent naming of Nancy Pelosi as the “most powerful woman in American history” has sparked national discussion on both the history of women in America and the nature of woman’s power.”

    Thank you for listing me and my sister’s blog in your post. :-)

    I just read your comment on my warrior poet blog….oh sadness! I totally wish I was going to the SAG conference so that I could meet you. :( I wanted to go but I didn’t have enough money for some of the extra expenses it would require on top of the 10 week course. I look forward to reading about your time at the SAG conference, though. The Lord has blessed the Ludy’s and the staff up there. I’m overjoyed about all that He is doing at Ellerslie by preparing His sons and daughters there.

    Lord be near you,
    Erika
