Victorious Living

Overview

E. Stanley Jones wrote Victorious Living in 1936 to respond to inquirers who had come to him morally and spiritually defeated. They were inwardly beaten, thus outwardly ineffective. The book responds with individual and social emphases, and goes step by step, as if on a ladder, to work through the pressing questions of the inner life and how it extends outward: How do we achieve a life evidencing the peace that passes understanding, even in ourselves, let alone passing it on?

Overview

E. Stanley Jones wrote Victorious Living in 1936 to respond to inquirers who had come to him morally and spiritually defeated. They were inwardly beaten, thus outwardly ineffective. The book responds with individual and social emphases, and goes step by step, as if on a ladder, to work through the pressing questions of the inner life and how it extends outward: How do we achieve a life evidencing the peace that passes understanding, even in ourselves, let alone passing it on?

What makes the difference between ordinary living and extraordinary, victorious living? How can we build a new inner strength that shines through in our outward character and relationships? Our own efforts to rise above are ineffective but by applying the power of God’s Word we can close the gap between our reality and our beliefs. Each daily reading offers essential truths and eternal principles: keys to victorious living in the circumstances we encounter every day! Now this vibrant work is making a long deserved comeback, with a new foreword by Leonard Sweet.

Meet the Author

Each generation yields a few Christian leaders whose life commitment to Christ and spiritual gifts continue inspiring faith beyond their lifetimes. E. Stanley Jones (1884 1973) was such a person. As a widely known and universally admired Christian missionary and evangelist of the 20th Century, Jones spent 70 years traveling throughout the world. As an ecumenical leader and spokesperson for peace, racial reconciliation, and social justice, he was a constant witness for Jesus Christ. A confidant of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi, and an inspiration to Martin Luther King, Jr., and numerous other world leaders. He was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

In 1938, Time magazine called Jones “the world’s greatest missionary evangelist.” His approach to evangelism presented Christ as the universal Son of Man without the trappings of Western culture. His tireless effort in advancing the Gospel knew no bounds. He delivered tens of thousands of sermons and lectures, traveled 50 weeks a year, and often spoke two to six times a day. His message of the necessity of “surrender” to Jesus Christ and “Jesus is Lord” had a life-changing impact on the millions of people throughout the world who heard him speak or read his books.
