This is the first book in Gordon's beloved "Quiet Talks" series of works, one that explores the mysteries of spiritual power: What is it? How do we claim it? What does it mean to be a "powerful Christian"? Through friendly, intimate conversation, Gordon explains how to welcome the strength of Jesus into your soul and feel its presence in your heart. Seekers after spiritual succor continue to welcome Gordon's wisdom and embrace his message more than a century after this widely influential work was first published. American lay preacher SAMUEL DICKEY GORDON (1859-1936) was a devotional speaker in high demand throughout the early 1900s, as well as a prolific author of inspirational works. His "Quiet Talks" series includes Quiet Talks on Prayer and Quiet Talks About Jesus.
