A very good book

One of the best things about the internet is that you can find rare, out-of-print books that are wonderful. May I recommend to you "Out of my life" by V Raymond Edman? This man was a teacher, missionary, pastor and later a big-wig at Wheaton. He wrote several study books that are very good, but this particular book in one of different stories, hence the title. There are stories of faith, stories of the miraculous Providence of God, stories of family and friends. Evertime I read it I am inspired in my Christian walk. It is not only encouraging, but occasionally funny too. I also learned a few good quotes to live by:
"Never doubt in the darkness what God told you in the light" and
"Its always too soon to quit"

Its a great book!

Did you ever read, "More Precious Than Gold" by John Vaughn? His wife and daughter were severely burned about 25 years ago. It's the story of that whole thing and what God did through it.That has the same quote: "Never doubt in the darkness what God told you in the light." That's the gem I took from that book.
Thanks for reminding me of it!

Jolene, I've read that book. My Dad was in school at Bob Jones when all of that happened and I remember it so well. We have dear friends that attend Brother Vaughn's church and have been there for YEARS. It really is a great book, Rhonda, if you've never read the story.
