All Americans are familiar with the story of the Pilgrims--persecuted for their religion in the Old World, they crossed the ocean to settle in a wild and dangerous land. But for most of us, the story ends after their brutal first winter at Plymouth, with a supposedly peaceful encounter with the Native Americans and a happy Thanksgiving.
"I loved it!"
What is Christian Perfection? Why are so many professing Christians afraid of the doctrine? Why is the idea so vehemently resisted? These answers and more are found in Samuel Chadwick's The Call to Christian Perfection; Christian Perfection, says Chadwick, is not infallibility. And neither is it encompassed in the dissolution of our physical existence. Is moral perfection possible in this life? Chadwick's presentation to the affirmative is contained in this audiobook.
In our day, much as in Chadwick's, Pentecost is mostly misunderstood by the Church at large and is therefore either feared or turned into a circus. In both cases the Spirit of God is either lacking or completely grieved. This is evident in the absence of power; power to embrace and live a holy life in spite of the deprivations of the professing church and the pollutions of the world around us.
What is prayer? How do we apprehend communion with God? In The Path of Prayer Chadwick leads us on an excursion into the depths of prayer. We are admonished not to simply learn to say our prayers, but to pray our prayers. Expressing the heart and character of God as revealed in Scripture, Chadwick teaches us the overwhelming necessity of a proper attitude of heart when approaching the Throne of Grace. By Biblical example and precept prayer is defined and explained.
After three years in England, William Landor returns to Boston in 1774, little knowing the events that are about to unfold. England has issued an ultimatum: pay for the tea that was destroyed in the Boston Tea Party, or the Port of Boston will be closed. William knows that this will have a devastating effect on his hometown, which is so dependent on the sea. However, he finds himself in the middle of the political struggle he wanted to avoid.
The stories written in this book are typical of those found throughout history. The explorers of the old world discovered a continent that was new to them, and they jabbed their flag into the ground and claimed that land for their sovereign. There was no regard for the native peoples of that land. At first, welcoming the Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, French, and English onto their shores, the Indians soon discovered that the strangers in their land were not there to live peacefully beside the Indian.
