More About E. M. Bounds
Glenn Langohr has a purpose: he writes to shine a light inside our prison systems and to help others turn their lives around. Edward McKendree (E. M.) Bounds (1835-1913) As a young adult, Bounds was ignited by a great revival, and left his legal practice to serve the Lord, becoming an ordained Methodist Episcopal preacher. Shocked by atrocities committed against his countrymen by the invading Union Army during the Civil War, Bounds peacefully refused to sign an oath of allegiance to the Union and was sent to prison, where he continued his ministry among the inmates. Eventually released and sent away, he became a Confederate chaplain on the front lines, praying for his men within sight of them as they fought. After a full year of intense public intercession from Bounds and the surviving men of Franklin, the demoralized town experienced revival. The tireless compassion of this man, who would spend hours each day in intercessory prayer, continued to the end of his life. W. H. Hodge, who was mostly responsible for the publication of E. M. Bounds' books, developed an intimate friendship with the prayer warrior: "At last," he said, "I have found a man that really prays. I shall never let him go. He drew me to him with hooks of steel."
Reviews - What do customers think about Essentials of Prayer?
A classic work that's been meddled with Apr 11, 2006
That this is a classic work on prayer, few would dispute. I regard it as one of the most poignant and powerful books on prayer that I have read. However, the publishers deserve a rap on the knuckles for modernizing the English. Why a book that was written in the 19th century ought to be "modernized" is beyond me. After all, we still read the King James Bible, and that was written in 1611. The result is that the work has been stripped of its original power. Find a version of this classic as it was originally written, and avoid this strange capitulation to the spirit of the times.
