Overview

What do great Christians have in common? What motivates and empowers some believers to lead extraordinary lives of service, sacrifice, and devotion?

James Gilchrist Lawson (1874-1946) studied many such spiritual giants, looking for a common thread in their experience.

They called this experience "full consecration," "entire sanctification," "the baptism of the Holy Spirit," and so on.

This book describes what Lawson learned as he studied the deeper spiritual experiences of these Christian leaders.

NEW TESTAMENT CHARACTERS Not only was the Holy Spirit the source of all spiritual power in Old Testament times; but He imparted power to John the Baptist, to the Son of God Himself, to the Galilean fishermen, and to all the great saints of New Testament times.

The angel, in announcing His birth, said, " For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathersto the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord " (Luke 1:15-17). When he had grown to manhood, John the Baptist preached in the wilderness, proclaiming the coming of the Christ and commanding the people to repent. The multitudes were strangely affected by the preaching of thisgreat prophet. " Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about Jord...
