Item description for Aggressive Christianity by Catherine Booth...
The world is dying. famishing for lack of real spiritual bread. It wants something to eat, and many 'Christians' give it a stone! But God is raising a people who know what the world wants and how to give it, who know how to break the bread of life, and testify what God has done for them.
You are called to preach the gospel by the need of the world. Set yourself to work for God. Go to Him to ask Him how to do it. Go to Him for the equipment of power and then begin. Never mind how you tremble. Your trembling will do more good than if you were ever so brave. Never mind the tears. I wish Christians would weep the Gospel into people; it would often go deeper than it does. Never mind if you stammer. They will believe you when it comes from the heart.
Get filled with the Spirit, and then go and let it out upon the lost. Go and stretch yourself upon the dead in sins, and breathe into him the breath of spiritual life. Go and touch his eyes that he may see, and speak to the dead and deaf with the voice of God and make them hear. Look the lost in the face and take hold of them lovingly by the hand and say, 'My friend, you are dying, you are going to everlasting death If nobody has ever told you till now - I have come to tell you '.
Do not be content with just gentle invitations. Run after the lost and pull them out of the fire. Knock and hammer and burn in your words with the fire of the Holy Ghost into their hardened, darkened hearts, until they realize that they are in danger.

Reviews - What do customers think about Aggressive Christianity?
brilliant - I wish I'd read this years ago Jul 27, 2005
If this doen't move you then nothing will. It's sheer dynamite. Buy one and give it to everyone you know!
My one regret is I did not buy this book years ago - I wrote the author off as being old-fashioned and out-of-date, rather boring and decidedly uncharismatic(the way I currently see the Salvation Army)when in fact this woman was totally with it, a shaker and mover filled with the Holy Spirit with a passion for souls easily as dynamic as folk such as J Hudson Taylor or Jim Elliot. It is real soul-stirring motivating stuff.
