Thirty selected devotional readings about a Christian's relationship to Christ gleaned from the writings of Charles G. Finney
Though Charles Finney is most often associated with evangelism and revival, his heart yearned over the Christian who, though forgiven of past sins, still lived in bondage to sinful habits.
L.G. Parkhurst has carefully selected thirty brief but powerful readings from Finney, showing how freedom comes to a Christian only through a relationship with Christ.
Chapter titles include:
• Jesus My King
• Jesus My All in All
• Jesus My Strength
• Jesus My Hope
• Christ My Rock
This new book is similar in format to Finney's Principles of Prayer, also edited by Parkhurst.
Charles G. Finney (1792-1875) is recognized as the most effective evangelist of the 19th century. It is estimated that more than half a million people were converted to Christ through his evangelistic ministry. After becoming a lawyer he carefully explored the claims of Christ and was powerfully converted in 1821. An avid student of the Bible, he soon engaged in preaching and teaching throughout many eastern and southern states. The result was a revival which altered the course of American history.
