About this title

Synopsis:

“The Necessity of Prayer” is one of the greatest works of a truly profound author. This volume challenges mediocrity in the Christian life at its very core. The reader will come away from it with the certainty that he has sat at the feet of one who has frequented the very throne of God. The reader will also sense a Divine pull on the deepest recesses of his heart, as the author describes the kind of intimacy with God we all long for. The one who wishes to remain stagnant amidst religious ritual should stay away from this potent medicine, but the one who wishes to remember why we pursue the life we do and longs to regain the heavenly perspective will find a strong welcome antidote against mediocrity and earth-mindedness.

From the Back Cover:

Some Christians insist that 19th-century American pastor Edward M. Bounds offered a more profound understanding of prayer for modern believers than any other contemporary religious thinker. This classic book on personal communication with God--first published in 1929, after his death, from the voluminous writings he left behind--explores how only prayer that truly comes from the spirit brings faith to Christian lives.

Bounds explores: · prayer and faith · prayer and trust · prayer and desire · prayer and fervency · prayer and importunity · prayer and vigilance · prayer and the word of God · and much more.

Seekers after spiritual succor are sure to find words of wisdom and guidance in this inspirational volume.
