Here is a masterly study of the inner life by a heart thirsting after God, eager to grasp at least the outskirts of His ways, the abyss of His love for sinners, and the height of His unapproachable maj-esty—and it was written by a busy pastor in Chicago! There is deep insight, sobriety of style, and a catholicity of outlook that is refreshing. The author has few quotations but he knows the saints and mystics of the centures—Augustine, Nicholas of Cusa, Thomas a Kempis, von Hegel, Finney, Wesley and many more. The ten chapters are heart searching and the prayers at the close of each are for the closet, not pulpit. I felt the nearness of God while reading them.
Here is a book for every pastor, missionary, and devout Christian. It deals with the deep things of God and the riches of His grace. Above all, it has the keynote of sincerity and humility.

Allestree meant The Government of the Tongue to serve as a partner to his treatise on biblical interpretation, The Lively Oracles Given to Us. While the latter deals with the proper use and application of the received Word, The Government of the Tongue deals with that of the spoken word. He draws primarily from the book of Proverbs and the general letter of James. First, he discusses why God gifted humankind with speech, then how humankind has since abused it. Serving for many years as provost of a boys’ boarding school, Allestree writes practically and instructively.

Brother Lawrence was a man of humble beginnings who discovered the greatest secret of living in the Kingdom of God here on earth. The Practice of the Presence of God is a book of collected teachings of Brother Lawrence (born Nicholas Herman), a 17th-century Carmelite monk, compiled by Father Joseph de Beaufort. The compilation includes letters, as well as records of his conversations kept by Brother Lawrence's interlocutors. The basic theme of the book is the development of an awareness of the presence of God. At the age of 24, Brother Lawrence joined the Discalced Carmelite order in Paris, taking the religious name "Lawrence of the Resurrection". He spent the rest of his life with this order, dying on 12 February 1691. During his time as a monk, he was much preoccupied with the cultivating a keen sensitivity to the presence of God in everyday life.
Carl Gustav Adolf von Harnack (7 May 1851 - 10 June 1930) was a German Lutheran theologian and prominent church historian. He produced many religious publications from 1873 to 1912. Harnack traced the influence of Hellenistic philosophy on early Christian writing and called on Christians to question the authenticity of doctrines that arose in the early Christian church. He rejected the historicity of the gospel of John in favor of the synoptic gospels, criticized the Apostles' Creed, and promoted the Social Gospel.
"If we say that we are Christians, and yet live our lives in an ungodly way, influencing those around us to think negatively about
our Saviour then there might be something terribly wrong about our claim to be Christ’s followers. There are many people today who claim to be Christians, but their lives obviously contradict this claim. This is a real problem — a problem that is growing in many churches today." Charles Seet
