Enseñanzas Del Maestro

By: Sundar Singh

Excerpt: Prologo; Un profundo silencio me invadio cuando llegue al final de este librito ? A medida que leia, era como si el espiritu de Oscar Romero me ayudara a acercarme a la verdad, a una autentica relacion con Dios. Me habia sucedido algo extraordinario, algo totalmente nuevo. No es facil describirlo. El encuentro con el sencillo lenguaje de Monsenor Romero fue para mi el encuentro con un hombre de Dios cuya humildad y valentia llaman a la conversion, al compromiso,...

The Holy Bible: Spanish Sagradas Escrituras

By: Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library

Excerpt: En el principio creo Dios los cielos y la tierra. Y la tierra estaba desordenada y vacia, y las tinieblas estaban sobre la faz del abismo, y el espiritu de Dios se movia sobre la faz de las aguas. Y dijo Dios: Sea la luz; y fue la luz. Y vio Dios que la luz era buena; y aparto Dios a la luz de las tinieblas. Y llamo Dios a la luz Dia, y a las tinieblas llamo Noche; y fue la tarde y la manana un dia. Y dijo Dios: Sea un extendimiento en medio de las aguas, y haya...

The Spiritual Exercises

By: Father Elder Mullan

Excerpt: APPROBATION OF THE LATIN TEXTS; The Exercises were offered for ecclesiastical censure at Rome. The text submitted was not, however, the one which is here reproduced, but two Latin translations, one in more polished Latin -- since called the Vulgate Version -- and one a literal rendering. The opinions expressed on these versions, as also the formal approval of Paul III, are given here, as applying quite entirely to the text from which the translations were made.

At the Master's Feet

By: Sadhu Sundar Singh

Excerpt: This little book was published in Urdu in India, where also an English translation was issued. In the preparation of this translation we have been fortunate in having the co-operation of the Sadhu himself, and in concert with him certain alterations have been made with a view to remove obscurities and give added point and clearness wherever possible. While striving to provide a careful translation, a certain freedom of expression has been made use of wherever ne...

The Life of the Late Rev

By: Mr. John Flavel

Excerpt: Those of the name of Flavel derive their pedigree from one who was the third great officer that came over with William the Conqueror; but this worthy Divine was far from that weakness and vanity to boast of any thing of that nature, being of the poet's mind, who said, Et genus, et proavos, et quae non fecimus ipsi, Vix ea nostra voco -- -

Three Friends of God

By: Frances Bevan

Excerpt: The short account given in the following pages of three of the Friends of God of the fourteenth century is but a small fragment of a history which would form in itself a voluminous library, the History of the Brethren of the Middle Ages, known to us under many names, but in England chiefly as the Lollards or Boni Homines. Any account of these widely scattered and persecuted Christians must necessarily be a very imperfect one, as their history is told us chiefly ...

Zuleika Dobson

By: Max Beerbohm

Excerpt: That old bell, presage of a train, had just sounded through Oxford station; and the undergraduates who were waiting there, gay figures in tweed or flannel, moved to the margin of the platform and gazed idly up the line. Young and careless, in the glow of the afternoon sunshine, they struck a sharp note of incongruity with the worn boards they stood on, with the fading signals and grey eternal walls of that antique station, which, familiar to them and insignifica...

A Commentary on Saint Paul's Epistle to the Galatians

By: Martin Luther

Excerpt: The importance of this Commentary on Galatians for the history of Protestantism is very great. It presents like no other of Luther's writings Description: the central thought of Christianity, the justification of the sinner for the sake of Christ's merits alone. We have permitted in the final revision of the manuscript many a passage to stand which seemed weak and ineffectual when compared with the trumpet tones of the Latin original. But the essence of Luther's...

The Dream of Gerontius

By: Cardinal John Henry Newman

Excerpt: FIRST PHASE; GERONTIUS: JESU, MARIA -- I am near to death, And Thou art calling me; I know it now. Not by the token of this faltering breath, This chill at heart,, this dampness on my brow, -- (Jesu, have mercy! Mary, pray for me!) 'tis this new feeling, never felt before, (Be with me, Lord, in my extremity!) That I am going, that I am no more. ?Tis this strange innermost abandonment, (Lover of souls! great God! I look to Thee,) This emptying out of each constit...

The Glory of Christ

By: John Owen

Excerpt: Prefatory note; The following treatise may be regarded as a series of Discourses on John 17:24. The subject is the Glory of Christ, as the representative of God to the church,--in the mystery of his Person,--in his office as Mediator,--in his exaltation on high,--in his relation to the church during every age of its history,--and in the final consummation of his work, when all things are to be gathered into a blessed unity, as the result of his mediation. The tr...

The Glory of Christ, Part 2

By: John Owen

Excerpt: To The Reader; The design of this preface is not to commend either the author or the matter contained in this little book. Let every reader do as he finds cause. Nor need any assurance be given that Dr Owen was the author, to any who have conversed with his writings, and will be at the pains to read this over. It is, indeed, his application of the former Discourses upon this subject, printed in the year 1684. But the reason why it was not then added (the omissio...

The Holy Bible: Greek New Testament (Wescott-Hort)

By: Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library

Excerpt: This Bible translation was converted automatically from data files made available by the Unbound Bible project. Book names, introductions, titles, paragraphs, and the like were not available, so standard English names have been used. Therefore this file would benefit from additional work by someone who has access to a print edition.

Golden Grain

Excerpt: If we know HIM, we know enough! Christ's character is built in us; not given to us. Righteousness is imputed. Never take the initiative in moving into anything unless you have the Word of God to garrison you.--As soon as the Spirit takes hold of that Word, He makes it a throbbing reality. The motto of Jesus' life: I have come to do Thy will, O God. Some leave the great essentials, and involve themselves with doctrinal issues. Don't crowd God into two thousand ye...

The Fourfold Gospel

By: J.W. Mcgarvey

Excerpt: Introduction; We feel in placing this work before the public we should accompany it with some words of explanation. It is unique, presenting a combination of features never before collected in one work. Harmonies and Fourfold Gospels are plentiful, and we have examined a large number of them, beginning with the pioneer work of Tatian. We have sought to utilize all the good features employed by others, and to introduce several new and helpful inventions of our own.

The Greatest Thing in the World : An Address

By: Henry Drummond

Excerpt: THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not LOVE I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not Love, it profiteth me nothing.

Songs and Hymns of the Earliest Greek Christian Poets

By: Allen W. Chatfield

Excerpt: Preface; Four years ago the Anthologia Graeca Carminum Christianorum (Leipsic, 1871) was put into my hands by a friend, to look for hymns, Eucharistic especially, which, when rendered into English, might be suitable for the general use of the Church. Of Eucharistic hymns I did not find one in the volume. But I lighted frequently on detached passages here and there, which might form the groundwork of useful and popular hymns for general Christian worship. I did n...

The Christian in Complete Armour

By: by William Gurnall

Excerpt: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to with stand in the evil day, and having don...
