Overview

Everybody wants to pray with power—but how? Find out in the classic volume Quiet Talks on Prayer, now updated and abridged for ease of reading. This early twentieth-century guide by S. D. Gordon explains the meaning and mission of prayer, hindrances to prayer, the “how to’s” of praying, and Jesus’ habits of prayer. Identifying prayer as the world’s greatest “outlet of power,” Gordon encourages a vibrant, two-way communication with the God who longs for communion with His people.

Meet the Author

In the early 1900s, S.D. Gordon was a widely traveled speaker in high demand. A prolific author, he wrote more than 25 devotional books, most with the phrase "Quiet Talks" in the title. His first book sold half a million copies over 40 years! He died in 1936.
E.W. Kenyon said that "S.D. Gordon is a sporadic outburst of divine grace. He is unusual, as are all of God's rare tools... he is perfectly balanced in the Word and in the Spirit. He represents that rare but vanishing class of spiritually minded men of the last generation."
"The Treasury of Quiet Talks Selections from S.D. Gordon" (1951) by John W. Bradbury gives this brief biography (adapted): "Samuel Dickey Gordon ministered the deep things of God, he was not an ordained minister, He could boast no academic degrees, he was never doctored [he never received an earned or honorary doctorate]. Theological concepts he obtained from his Bible. A plain man, controlled by a deep desire to edify God's people, he won the respect of the learned and at the same time the affection of the simple.
"Gordon lived a long and useful life. He was born in Philadelphia August 12, 1859 and died June 1936. A public school education was all the academic training he had. But, as a young man, he was hard working , consecrated and sought the best God had for him. He served as assistant secretary of the Philadelphia Young Men's Christian Association in 1884-86 so efficiently that he became state secretary for the YMCA in Ohio, serving from 1886 to 1895. In this period he developed a quiet style of devotional speaking which was quite the opposite of the powerful forensics which dominated the pulpit style of that period.

    Impossible to increase the font large enough to actually read!

    Even on the "extra large" font setting on nook, the screen font is microscopic. Also, downloaded version is not what is shown. The text is a different book- no mention is made of the "five outlets of power" as listed on the cover. A friend has an original of this book, the downloaded version is completely different.
