JEWELS FROM E M BOUNDS
E. M. Bounds stated, “Prayer honors God, acknowledges His being, exalts His power, adores His providence, secures His aid.” Based on the uncompromising, simple foundations of Scripture, E. M. Bounds left a legacy of written jewels on The Mission of the Church; Our Spiritual Walk; and Leadership, God’s Way.
Bounds used terms such as: repentant, redeemed, righteous, self-denying, disciplined, consecrated, prayerful, evangelistic, holy, joyful, lovers of God, Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, ageless descriptions of the man, woman, and child of God. These faith-building, Spirit-inspired, never-before-published writings are now gathered together in one powerful volume in the Pure Gold Classics series.
