That makes historians regard this book as the preeminent work of 17th century America. Bradford's journal is a simple yet vivid story. Though Bradford never made an effort to publish the manuscript, he did intend for it to be preserved and read by others.

    "The Pursuit of God" is "a modest attempt to aid God's hungry children so to find Him" by A. W. Tozer. "We pursue God because, and only because, He has first put an urge within us that spurs us to the pursuit. 'No man can come to me,' said our Lord, 'except the Father which hath sent me draw him,' and it is by this very prevenient drawing that God takes from us every vestige of credit for the act of coming. The impulse to pursue God originates with God, but the outworking of that impulse is our following hard after Him."

    Excerpt: We are familiar with the names and deeds of the "generals", from the commander-in-chief down to the almost innumerable brigadiers, and we are all more or less ignorant of the habits and characteristics of the individuals who composed the rank and file of the "grand armies" of 1861-65. As time rolls on, the historian, condensing matters, mentions "the men" by brigades, divisions, and corps. But here let us look at the individual soldier separated from the huge masses of men composing the armies, and doing his own work and duty.

    "The Spirit of Christmas" is a collection of Henry Van Dyke's thoughts on the subject. "Power corrupts itself, and might cannot save. The Earth is full of ignorant strife, and for this evil there is no cure but by the giving of greater knowledge. It is because men do not understand evil that they yield themselves to its power. Wickedness is folly in action, and injustice is the error of the blind. It is because men are ignorant that they destroy one another, and at last themselves. If there were more light in the world there would be no sorrow."
