More About S. D. Gordon
In the early 1900s, S.D. Gordon was a widely travelled speaker in high demand. A prolific author, he wrote more than 25 devotional books, most with the phrase "Quiet Talks" in the title. His first book sold half a million copies over 40 years! He died in 1936. E.W. Kenyon said that "S.D. Gordon is a sporadic outburst of divine grace. He is unusual, as are all of God's rare tools... he is perfectly balanced in the Word and in the Spirit. He represents that rare but vanishing class of spiritually minded men of the last generation." "The Treasury of Quiet Talks Selections from S.D. Gordon" (1951) by John W. Bradbury gives this brief biography (adapted): "Samuel Dickey Gordon ministered the deep things of God, he was not an ordained minister, He could boast no academic degrees, he was never doctored [he never received an earned or honorary doctorate]. Theological concepts he obtained from his Bible. A plain man, controlled by a deep desire to edify God's people, he won the respect of the learned and at the same time the affection of the simple.
Reviews - What do customers think about Quiet Talks on Prayer?
Spritual Victory is possible Jul 22, 2001
I have been alive in Christ for 3 years, and S D Gordon is an answer to my prayer asking God for realisation of the victory that Christ gives us. He sent me 8 books by S D Gordon, of which I have read Quiet Talks on the Tempter, and am finishing this book. Together they have revolutionised my prayer life. I am positive in fighting Satan in the lives of saved and unsaved people about me, and especially in my own life. For the first time I am fighting my besetting sin with confidence that Christ who has victory can have that victory in me. Yes, the sentences are longer than in modern books. But he uses plenty of sentence breakers like commas, and the end result is worth it. Christian teaching is divided (as the apostle Paul labels it) into milk and meat. This is definitely meat - rare steak, just as I love it. This book will help you to a new relationship with the Father who is seeking to recover his prodigal world. I will not be letting this series out of my library, and look forwards to reading the others.
Quiet Talk on Prayer Apr 1, 2001
His sentences were so long that I lost my train of thought before the sentence ended. Although I had to make myself stick to finishing the book, it was worth it, because every so often he said something very profound. I think that there might be a book on the subject of prayer that is simplier to read.
Very Good Hands on Book Feb 11, 1997
This was a good book that walks you right through the prayer process. It looks at the basics of prayer, why, how, when and the things that make for more effective prayer.I thought the author was very specifice in his writing. He gave example after example on each subject he covered.Plus he gave very powerful real life examples of the results of praye
