This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green continues with the second part of examining The Complete Green Letters by Miles J. Stanford. “The good has always been the enemy of His best. No book can replace the Bible, and only those of the highest caliber can assist in opening His treasures. Therefore, seek the best and shun the secondary.”
In conjunction with the word of God, the greatest aid to spiritual growth comes through deeper-life literature. As to feeding, it must be primarily the word. But desired growth can be substantially aided by concentration on the best writings.
It makes all the difference when the awakened believer is introduced early on to the tried and true writings on the Christ-life. Even so, caution and discernment must be exercised when studying but, there are priceless truths out there for all who hunger for His best.
So, come be a part, as we search out one such example. One that had a profound, lasting influence on my life. A work I believe can truly be classified as one of the best – The Complete Green Letters, written by Miles J Stanford.
The complete green letters is not a single work, but actually a collection of five dealing with a common theme – “not I, but Christ.” In these works, Stanford presents us with a comprehensive treatise on what it means to be a Christian.
