THE SPIRITUAL MAN

Is it possible to be familiar with Jesus, to know the Bible, to be involved in church life, and yet not really know Jesus at all well?

Andrew Murray, with his perceptive insights into the church of his day, and indeed of ours too, shows how this is all too often the condition of many believers.

In the two essays comprising this book, Murray shows how we can move to a new place in really knowing Jesus, and how the presence of the Lord can become much more real to us.

There is a cost, but God always abundantly rewards those who seek Him with their whole heart.

The Pursuit of God

A. W. Tozer

THE PURSUIT OF GOD

“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants after you, God.

This thirst for an intimate relationship with God, claims A.W. Tozer, is not for a select few, but should be the experience of every follower of Christ.

But, he asserts, it is all too rare when believers have become conditioned by tradition to accept standards of mediocrity, and the church struggles with formality and worldliness.

Using examples from Scripture and from the lives of saints who lived with this thirst for God, Tozer sheds light on the path to a closer walk with God.

Grace Abounding To The Chief of Sinners

By John Bunyan

GRACE ABOUNDING

Grace Abounding To the Chief of Sinners is John Bunyan’s spiritual autobiography.

In it he tells of his conversion and struggle with faith. He wrote it while he was imprisoned for preaching without a license. His main issue was a kind of “spiritual obsessive compulsive disorder” as one reviewer puts it.

Bunyan was constantly concerned about the state of his salvation and whether God deemed him worthy enough for eternal life. This story communicates the author’s anguish over his sin, his confession, and the life-changing impact of God’s saving grace.

Bunyan’s spiritual struggles will remind readers that even the great minds of faith had issues with belief, and his personal testimony will encourage anyone who is doubting the status of their salvation.

The Confessions By Saint Augustine

The Confessions of

ST. AUGUSTINE

The son of a pagan father and a Christian mother, Saint Augustine spent his early years torn between conflicting faiths and world views.

In his Confessions, Saint Augustine reflects upon his life in the light of scripture and the presence of God. He begins with his infancy, pondering the many sins of his life before his conversion, and he confesses not only his sins but even more the greatness of God.

A remarkably honest and revealing spiritual autobiography, the Confessions also address fundamental issues of Christian doctrine, and many of the prayers and meditations it includes are still an integral part of the practice of Christianity today.

This work presents a wonderful contrast between the Holy God who created all things and whom heaven and earth cannot contain, and a commonly sinful man who has joyfully received God’s loving salvation and mercy.

Many scholars consider Saint Augustine to be among the greatest and most influential fathers of the early church. As you read his Confessions, you will find the confident humility that is common among those whom Jesus calls “great in the kingdom of heaven.”
May his Confessions guide you to the One whom he confesses.

Deeper Christian Life

By Andrew Murray

DEEPER CHRISTIAN LIFE

If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would you be convicted?

Christians have asked themselves this question, or ones like it, for millennia. In his book, The Deeper Christian Life, Andrew Murray helps us come to grips with those nagging insecurities in our Christian walk.

A shallow relationship with God leads us down a road of doubt and insecurities. Can I be forgiven? How can I forgive? Murray tells us that we can go deeper in our relationship with God, and with that deeper relationship comes growing confidence and joy in the gospel.

That joy springs from the knowledge of God’s grace in forgiving us, and enables us to extend that grace to others in our lives.

All of Grace

By Charles Spurgeon

ALL OF GRACE

It is not the object of this book to ask anything of you, but to tell you that salvation is ALL OF GRACE, which means, free, gratis, for nothing.

Charles Spurgeon is a cornerstone of the Christian religion. A preacher and teacher, his sermons have spread all over the world and his many printed works have been treasured classic for decades.All of Grace is a simple and eloquent presentation of basic salvation through grace alone.

He wants readers only to consume his work and ponder it, asking nothing in return because he believes in the power of God to bring unbelievers to Him.

Spurgeon brings the gospel to his readers with pointed illustrations, well-placed anecdotes, irrefutable arguments, heart-felt pleas, and (above all else) the plainly-spoken and rightly-applied word of God. This short and easy read is both a perfect introduction to salvation and an assurance of it for unbelievers and the saved alike.
