  • The Subject Of Humility By William Law - I have, in the last chapter, laid before you the excellency of praise and thanksgiving, and recommended that as the subject of your first devotions in the morning.

  • Quotes From John Wesley - The sea is an excellent figure of the fullness of God, and that of the blessed Spirit. For as the rivers all return into the sea; so the bodies, the souls, and the good works of the righteous, return into God, to live there in his eternal repose. The bottom of [...]
  • Sects and No-Sects - False Doctrines and Fanaticism Exposed- by E.E. Shelhamer 7.

  • Cruden’s Complete Concordance - I just picked up a copy of Cruden’s Complete Concordance to the Old and New Testaments. The book is 783 pages, hardback, 5 – 1/2″ x 8 – 7/8″ x 7/8″ in size, and the ISBN number is 0718802055. While this concordance is not as exhaustive as a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, [...]
  • ‘Radical Righteousness’ by Wallace Thornton - I am currently reading ‘Radical Righteous — Personal Ethics and the Development of the Holiness Movement’ by Wallace Thornton.

  • Questions from ‘Perfect Love’ - I just posted the questions from E.T. Curnick’s A Catechism on Christian Perfection, and I thought it would be good while I am on the subject to post the questions from J.A. Wood’s book ‘Perfect Love’. J.A. Wood’s book ‘Perfect Love’ had two main editions, the original edition when the book [...]
  • Questions from ‘A Catechism on Christian Perfection’ - I finished reading E.T. Curnick’s 203-page book ‘A Catechism on Christian Perfection’ this morning. As I noted in my post A Catechism On Christian Perfection, I purchased 2 copies since the one I was reading was borrowed. This book is very much like J.A. Wood’s book ‘Perfect Love’. Both books are [...]
  • No Compromise-The Life Story of Keith Green - I read a chapter from Melody’s book ““No Compromise-The Life Story of Keith Green“, which gives her account of what happened at the Last Days Ministry community when Keith read a chapter from Finnny’s Lectures on Revival about breaking up your fallow ground. This happening was referred to at the Last [...]
  • The Revival at Last-Days Ministries - An Excerpt From No Compromise by Melanie Green “When my time comes–that’s the way I wanna go,” Keith said as he snapped his fingers. “Earth to heaven in an instant!” Keith’s words went right by me at the time. There would be a day, though, when they would come back. For the [...]
  • How to Promote a Revival - Note of Introduction-by Bob Mutch: I think there are many good things in Finney’s writings, which I myself have benefited from. However, sometimes he can be difficult to understand. I have had a number of people misunderstand this article, so I feel the need to offer some guidance in the use [...]
