Books that feed me

Recommended Posts

Hi, Melinda  I have read The Hiding Place many times and have watched the movie twice that many times!  At the end of the movie Corrie Ten Boom actually appears to speak some words to us, the last being, “There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.”  What a great woman Corrie was!

I hope to meet her in heaven one day soon. :)

Anyone read them? Who else would you recommend

I find biographical books difficult because they so rarely show the down side of life, Corries does try to do that.

one biography I'd recommend is 'Missing believed Killed by Margret Hayes. You can get it from dayone publications.

Suggestion alternate these sort of books with more challenging theological books and do take what ever you're reading in to work to read at lunch time, as it can generate conversations.

For now Corrie Ten Boom. I love her books and i feel such growth  and direction frim reading them. Amazing inspiring woman. This is how i like my knowledge to grow, to underpin my faith and prayers. Direct and filled with love. Not self glorification as some authors do. How to serve God and give Him the glory. I love every sentence she wrote.. I marvel at her travels even in old age. 

Anyone read them? Who else would you recommend as wonderfully straightforward scriptural teachings?  

Tozer books are exhorting, to me anyway. I had always been excited to read the scriptures after reading a Tozer article. Many of his books are articles he wrote as an editor of a Christian publication so short chapters and a point being made in less fluffy writing can be expected. 

I had liked his book, "The Counsellor".  Read it years ago, it's about the Holy Spirit.              

Thanks for posting, I have a trunk of books I know a few Tozer books rest in. I need to dig them out.

GOD’S WILL: our dwelling place by Andrew Murray

This book impacted me to such a degree that God granted me a deep repentance. He sums the book up with the following:

     Oh, the glory of the will of God! In Him who sits upon the throne! In the Universe which He created to show forth that will! In the heavenly hosts who worship before the throne, where that will is enthroned in glory! In the Beloved Son, who came as man to do that will on earth! In the heart of the believer, who has yielded his life to be conformed to it! In the Church, through which that will is working out its eternal purpose in the world! Oh, the glory of the will of God! Let us gaze, worship, and give glory to God until the will of God rules the throne of our heart as the throne of heaven, and until it is done in our life on earth as it is done in heaven.

     Lord Jesus, who taught us to pray “Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven,” we look to You. Oh teach us to live thus!

I read the hiding place a few times at least. I meant a man who knew her from Holland. I think he worked with her. Her family was great too. Her Father a man of faith and hers sisters all walk wi T h God.

Corrie has written many other books.  Not Good if Detached, Amazing Love, and her version of The Hiding Place is A Prisoner And Yet.    Her version is my favorite because of the simple way that she speaks that reaches into the depths of me. There are may others but those are my favorites.  You have to order them from places that carry old books.

I hesitated to post these chapters and verses yesterday in the original post because of their length.

When the scriptures are on the same subject, it can give greater scope and perspective concerning the will of God.
