- God's Little Messengers
by Esther M. Bailey
Inspiration for Godís Little Messengers came from the child that Jesus placed in the midst of the disciples to teach a powerful lesson.

Jesus explained that membership in the spiritual church required the heart to be changed to the innocent state of a child, undefiled by willful sin. The stories in Godís Little Messengers portray children in their most endearing roles. As they speak and act from the heart, they also bring out spiritual truths that can be applied to life.

- My Utmost for His Highest
by Oswald Chambers, James Reiman (Editor)
Oswald Chambers, a Scotsman who converted to Christianity in his teens under the ministry of Charles Spurgeon, has been affecting Christians with his devotional words since My Utmost for His Highest was first published in 1935. This acknowledged classic contains 365 daily readings that take heady doctrine and make it practical, realistic, and intensely personal. With humor and humility, Chambers speaks plainly to the common man struggling with devotion to Christ in daily living. Worldly cares and self-serving desires begin to lose their appeal as Chambers aides the reader in transforming his mind by viewing life through the instruction of God's Word. Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate, attests to this: "no book except the Bible has influenced my walk with Christ at such deep maturing levels." This is Chambers's chief desire, directing the reader to "shut out every other consideration and keep yourself before God for this one thing only--My Utmost for His Highest... determined to be absolutely and entirely for Him and for Him alone." --Jill Heatherly

by Marty A. Bullis (Author)

by Brother Lawrence
