DAVID LIVINGSTONE THE TRUTH BEHIND THE LEGEND by Rob Mackenzie
Having travelled to 14 countries in Africa I was always fascinated by the respect that is still given to this courageous pioneer. Post colonization the names of cities and roads have more often than not changed. This is not true for any city or road that bears the name LIVINGSTONE. Having visited the town museum in Livingstone on the banks of the Zambezi river, I once again was intrigued to see the honor given to his legacy. This book gives a stirring account of his bravery and love for the African people.
HEALING THROUGH DELIVERANCE by Peter Horrobin
For the most part, deliverance, speaking in tongues and the miraculous are not a favorite subject for churches today. The author lays out the biblical basis for the ministry of healing, deliverance and other areas of the supernatural. He provides thorough answers to many difficult questions, equipping you to respond in an appropriate manner to believing God for miracles. After all, the Church described in the book, The Acts Of The APOSTLES, demonstrates the very content of this book. The Church without the supernatural is less of the testimony that it should be.
FOX’S BOOK OF MARTYRS by John Foxe
‘Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man: we shall this day, light such a candle by God’s grace in England, as, I trust, shall never be put out.’
Hugh Latimer’s famous words of consolation to Nicholas Ridley as they are both about to be burnt alive for heresy come from John Foxe’s magisterial Acts and Monuments, popularly known as the Book of Martyrs. This vast collection of unforgettable accounts of religious persecution exerted as great an influence on early modern England and New England as the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer. It contains many stirring stories of the apprehension, interrogation, imprisonment,
and execution of alleged heretics. The narratives not only attest to the fortitude of individuals who suffered for their faith not many years before the birth of Shakespeare, but they also constitute exciting tales filled with graphic details and verbal wit. Without doubt essential reading for any Christian called to work in Godless regions. For all those who are prepared to,”Give up the right to their own life.”
THE TALE OF THREE KINGS by Gene Edwards
This best-selling tale is based on the biblical figures of David, Saul, and Absalom. For the many Christians who have experienced pain, loss, and heartache at the hands of other believers, this compelling story offers comfort, healing, and hope. Christian leaders and directors of religious movements throughout the world have recommended this simple, powerful, and beautiful story to their members and staff. You will want to join the thousands who have been profoundly touched by this incomparable story. I make it compulsory reading for pastors.
TORTURED FOR CHRIST by Richard Wurmbrand
Reverend Richard Wurmbrand suffered 14 years of imprisonment in communist Romania. His communist captors lied to his wife, saying he was dead. Yet, by God’s grace he escaped, to tell the world the truth about Christians persecuted for their belief in Jesus Christ. This was the first book I read after coming to faith at age 16. Three months later I heard him speak at a Church in Curry Rd, Durban. His testimony had a profound impact on me.
