More About Edward M. Bounds
Edward McKendree Bounds was trained and apprenticed as an attorney, but instead of pursuing a legal career, he entered the ministry in his early twenties. In 1859 he was ordained as pastor of the the Monticello Methodist Church in Missouri.
Bounds was a chaplain in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He was captured by the Union Army in Franklin, Tennessee and later released. After his release, he strove to build up the spiritual state of Franklin by starting weekly prayer sessions.
Bounds was an associate editor of the official Methodist newspaper, The Christian Advocate, and is best known for his numerous books on the subject of prayer.
"Edward McKendree Bounds did not merely pray well that he might write well about prayer. He prayed because the needs of the world were upon him. He prayed, for long years, upon subjects which the easy-going Christian rarely gives a thought, and for objects which men of less thought and faith are always ready to call impossible. From his solitary prayer-vigils, year by year, there arose teaching equaled by few men in modern Christian history. He wrote transcendently about prayer, because he was himself, transcendent in its practice.
"As breathing is a physical reality to us so prayer was a reality for Bounds. He took the command, 'Pray without ceasing' almost as literally as animate nature takes the law of the reflex nervous system, which controls our breathing." -Claude Chilton, Jr., in the Foreword to Necessity of Prayer .
Edward M. Bounds was born in 1835 and died in 1913.

Reviews - What do customers think about Place Called Heaven?
Scriptural and Insightful Feb 1, 2007
"We were constantly with him, in prayer and preaching, for eight precious years. We never heard him utter a foolish word. He was one of the most intense eagles of God that ever penetrated the spiritual sky," Homer W. Hodge says of the author in the preface. So with the creditability of the author being established, the tone is set for a study of the desire of every Christian, i.e., to be with Jesus at Home.
In the opening chapter, heaven as a place is established. Pastor Bounds writes, "The facts are that death does not end all, that death cannot end all." He goes on to add that, "Jesus is our pioneer, gone to prepare heaven for us." Bounds seeks to make heaven more real in the minds of Christians by focusing attention on it rather than the things of the earth. Using the Bible as his source he ponders what it will be like there. He notes, "Earth will not be forgotten, but the former things will scarely be remembered."
The final chapter talks about the reunion of believers in heaven. He says relationships will be stronger and more hallowed there than on earth. We will know even as we are known, he reminds us...writing, "We will not lose our identity in heaven; we will have the same peculiarities and specific makeup in our entire moral being."
The legacy Bounds left can be an encouragment to Christians who work in obscurity. The biographical section about the author points out that he spent a lot of time reading, writing, and praying. "He died on August 24, 1913, still relatively unknown to most of the Christian sphere."
