Books & Reading

This page is dedicated to the great books: the ones we keep close, that draw us back time and again. There is nothing that can provoke the imagination, deepen the mind or spark conversation as quickly as the great books. I hope you find some new favorites and perhaps recommend a few of your own.

    Cool! I have “The Heavenly Man” and “The Christian in Complete Armour”. Have read “The Heavenly Man” all the way through and was in the same province & city in China just two years (I think) after he escaped from prison. Fascinating.
    Still haven’t finished the William Gurnall book yet, but from what I have read so far, I love how applicable his writings are to today (in light of the fact that he wrote them an eon ago!). Timeless.

  3. Hi, I thought you might like to use this on your web site, or for yourself. A free prayer book by Matthew Henry called ‘A Method for Prayer’ 1710 edition, with additional Bible helps. You can use the audio files for the book if you like. http://www.mrmatthewhenry.com
