Item description for Secret Power (Pure Gold Classics #24) by Dwight Lyman Moody...
Overview Dwight L. Moody believed that the power of the Holy Spirit had been too much overlooked, as though it were not practical. He wrote, "The result is lack of power in testimony and work. If we would work, 'not as one that beats the air," but to some definite purpose, we must have this power from on high. Without this power, our work will be drudgery. With it, it becomes a joyful task, a refreshing service. May God make this book a blessing to many. This is my prayer."

Reviews - What do customers think about Secret Power?
Deep and Profound Sep 1, 2006
This is a fairly short book but it isn't a quick and easy read. I didn't think so. I would read a few pages and have to digest what I'd read, reflect on and absorb what Moody was saying. It's not that it's difficult. He writes very simply and directly about the person and purpose of the Holy Spirit and how he guides, convicts and accompanies Christians through life.
But the ideas and meanings Moody reveals through Bible verses and his own life (100 years ago!) have a lasting impact on every reader today.
I'm a big fan of C.S. Lewis and I reacted the same way to this book as I have to Lewis' deceptively brief-looking books on Christianity. Their brevity may make their books look short but the depth of what they say will have a greater impact than whole shelves of other works on the same subject.
(Billy Graham also has a wonderful book called THE HOLY SPIRIT for more on the subject).
Great Read - challenging May 26, 2005
If you want to be challenged in your Christian life then this book is for you. Great read, it will make you think about how you are living for God and if you really have the power you need to live it as you should. The main theme is "complete surrender" to God so that the Holy Spirit can work in you for God's glory. Do take into account though that the text in this book is the same as "The Secret of Success in the Christian Life" by the same author. Don't make the same mistake as I did and buy them both. Although the text was written over 100 years ago, it is still very much what we all as Christians need to read and reflect upon. Looking for a challenge in your Christian life? Want something more? Want to live the Christian life to the full? If so, read this book. Five Star reading!
