Besides the Bible, what is the most influential book you have read?
I can't name one, so here is my list:
"And the Word Came With Power" by Joanne Shettler
"Revelation: Four Views" by Steven Gregg
"The Case For Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny and Terror" by Natan Sharansky
"The Case For Israel" by Alan Dershowitz
"Effective Performance of Band Music: Solutions to Specific Problems in the Performance of 20th Century Band Music" by W. Francis Mcbeth
Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan (1678)
Best read in a modern updated translation.
"God in the Dock," a collection of essays by C.S. Lewis.
The original paperback 1964 edition of "None Dare Call it Treason" by John A. Stormer (Liberty Bell Press).
Because when JAS wrote that book, he was NOT a saved man (NDCIT = basically a recruiting tool for the J.B. Society [not that there's anything inherently wrong w/ that]).
1965: JAS receives Christ as savior
23 April 1966:
A) A confused (but very conservative) 19 YO sees ad in local paper that JAS is speaking at local bapt church
B) Said 19 YO attends Sat evening service just to hear what this much-admired (to him, anyway) writer has to say
C) Said 19 YO responds to the invitation (never been to a service that even had an invitation before) that JAS gives at the end of his review of just how horrible things have gotten in the 1964-1966 interval.
D) Said 19 YO is transferred from the "Dead in trespasses and sin" category to "Alive in Christ Jesus" one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'd say that the above is a pretty good reason for calling NDCIT a very influential book in (now) said 58.666 YO's life, wouldn't U?
