Mr. Brooks, in this compilation, has endeavored to select those incidents and practical remarks from Mr. Müller’s Narratives, that show in an unmistakable way, both to believers and unbelievers, the secret of believing prayer, the manifest hand of a living God, and His unfailing response, in His own time and way, to every petition which is according to His will (from the preface).

Malchus' Ear

by Dennis F. Kinlaw
ISBN 978-0-915143-30-6 (hardcover, 162 pages)

The gospel is best communicated not through books on theology, philosophical debates, or audio-visual wizardry. It is through “the foolishness of preaching” that men and women are brought to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. For twenty centuries, the Christian faith has been spread by those who with boldness, creativity, and power proclaimed Jesus as Lord.

Dennis Kinlaw was a scholar, professor, college administrator, and author. But he was first and foremost a preacher. To be more specific, he was an evangelist. Based in Scripture, his sermons stimulated the mind and penetrated the heart at the same time. Academicians and farmers, old and young, and people from a wide variety of cultures heard him gladly. And many bore witness to how God worked a change in their lives through his preaching.This book is a collection of sermons that typify the pulpit ministry of Dennis Kinlaw. The sermons in this volume were chosen because they summarize the heart of Kinlaw’s theology, they touch both mind and heart, and they proclaim the sin-destroying power of the gospel to enable men and women to walk in holiness.

Power of Praying Scripture

by Fiona Richardson
ISBN: 978-0-9905903-7-8 (softcover, 178 pages)

When you pray, does it ever seem that you are praying the same thing over and over? Fiona Richardson has written a helpful tool for those who struggle to know how and what to pray. Using Scripture in your prayers can provide focus and direction for your prayer life.

This book is in two sections. The first part is about asking Jesus to teach us to pray. The second part is Scripture-based prayers and ways of praying Scripture.

Bringing His Words back to Him can transform your prayer life by drawing you deeper into the heart of God. They will lead you into His presence and give you strength to believe His promises. By praying Scripture you are not only welcoming the kingdom of God into your life but also are welcoming Jesus to break the rule of Satan. The Word terrifies our already-defeated enemy. You will win victories by saturating your prayers with Scripture.

Fiona Richardson has been in full-time ministry for 17 years. After working in Tanzania, she is continuing to work for the “Esther Project.” She and her husband are missionaries with OMS and based at the headquarters in Greenwood, Indiana, to equip leaders around the world. Fiona loves to teach the Word of God through writing and speaking.

Take Time to Be Holy

by Samuel Logan Brengle
ISBN: 978-1-4143-7906-7 (hardcover, 384 pages)

You may know “Take time to be holy” as the first line of a familiar hymn. What you may not realize is that pursuing holiness is also the key to a closer, more fulfilling relationship with God. If you desire a life free from doubt or fear – a heart that wholly loves and trusts God – then what you are really seeking is holiness. And it’s time to discover it.

“Take Time to Be Holy” contains a year’s worth of classic selections from Samuel Logan Brengle – a groundbreaking leader in the Salvation Army whose writings on personal holiness have been touching hearts and inspiring readers for over a century. Every day’s reading will deepen your understanding of what holiness is; how, through God’s grace, it is available to each of us; and how experiencing it will make God more real to you than ever.
This year, take time to be holy – and you’ll be forever changed.

Pilgrim's Progress

by John Bunyon
ISBN 978-1-62245-239-2 (softcover, 368 pages)
Free audio download

Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you’ll begin to identify today’s many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he’s a true follower of Christ when he’s really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.

The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original Pilgrim’s Progress listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book. The text is tweaked just enough to make it readable today, for the young and the old. Youngsters in particular will be drawn to the original illustrations included in this wonderful classic.

God Guides Image

by Mary Geegh
ISBN 809151425-5 (softcover, 60 pages)

It is only 60 pages long, bound in a simple white glossy cover, but this gem is filled with the most wonderful, heartwarming, and true stories of how God guides. The central message of every story is that listening prayer will change things. Mary Geegh, a missionary to India for over 38 years, shares how the simple act of sitting quietly and allowing God to guide, instead of demanding an answer, changes lives.

Mary learned that we need to wait, be still, listen, write down the things the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts, determine to obey, and then share with others how the power of Christ changes us.

The revelation that God hears and will direct our day-to-day lives through prayer is another of these faith-expanding realizations that can change every aspect of our Christian walk.
