Holiday Reading

Hi All,
While on holiday I managed to read three books. I greatly enjoyed reading Faith Cooks “Fearless Pilgrim” A life and evaluation of John Bunyan’s writings.
I have read some of his writings other than Pilgrims progress, and have them all in the 3 vol “Offer” Edition.
Bunyan was born in 1628 and lived to 1688 but died before William and Mary replaced Charles the 2nd. So Bunyan’s life covers a turbulent and most interesting period of history. I highly recommend reading this book and it should inspire you to read more of Bunyan’s works and make you realise that in terms of “cost” our stand for the Faith once delivered to the Saints, is very low in the Uk today, whereas the cost to Bunyan and his family was immense.
O may we be as faithful as he and fully use the oportunities that God gives us day by day.

The other two books were “A City not Forsaken” A History of Christian witness in Gower Street and Shaftesbury Avenue in London UK by R Stonelake which is a history of the Strict Baptist witness there.

Lastly was “Fire Within” the moving autobiography of Wu Yung in Taiwan. Which I thought was a well balanced book although would not be able to agree with everything advocated in it.
