This volume combines two Brengle classics, The Soul-Winner's Secret and Love Slaves. Edited for modern readership by popular author (and long-time Brengle devotee) Bob Hostetler, Brengle's authentic voice remains strong, now able to more relevantly engage today's pursuers of holiness. The Soul-Winner's Secret was written to help Christ's servants preach, teach, witness, and evangelize. And in the second, Brengle writes, "Love-slaves are altogether at their Master's service...this is the joy of love slaves, and this they count as perfect freedom." That ideal of Spirit-empowered servants with wholehearted love characterizes the latter chapters, concluding with Brengle's personal testimony.
This volume combines two Brengle classics, Heart Talks on Holiness and The Way of Holiness. Edited for modern readership by popular author (and long-time Brengle devotee) Bob Hostetler, Brengles authentic voice remains strong, now able to more relevantly engage todays pursuers of holiness. Heart Talks gives a systematic look at the holy life, exploring what holiness is and isnt, hindrances to it, and fruits of it. The Way was originally for young people, but it has since benefitted people of all ages with its thirteen short chapters on such topics as why, when, and how to be holy.
Samuel Logan Brengle was an influential Salvation Army preacher, teacher, and author from 1887-1931; and to this day he remains an internationally renowned "ambassador of holiness." In 1889 he began writing articles on holiness, the success of which led to nine books over the next forty-five years.
