Book Review: 100 Christian Quotes by 10 Great Christians

Who can turn down a free e-book promising highlight-worthy quotes? Not me. This book, 100 Christian Quotes by 10 Great Christians, by Pastor Duke Tabor held many pearls. While I wouldn't have highlighted all of them, here are my favorites:

"A saint's life is in the hands of God as a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see; He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says I cannot stand any more. But God does not heed; He goes on stretching until His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly." - Oswald Chambers

"I wonder if people who asked for God to intervene in our world really know what they are asking. Will they want to be there when God really does intervene?" - C.S. Lewis

"We must allow ourselves to be interrupted by God. God will be constantly crossing our paths and canceling our plans by sending us people with claims and petitions.... It is part of the discipline of humility that we must not spare our hand where it can perform a service and we do not assume that our schedule is our own to manage, but allow it to be arranged by God." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Go for souls. Go straight for souls, and go for the worst." - General William Booth

"I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost; Christianity without Christ; forgiveness without repentance; salvation without regeneration; politics without God; and Heaven without Hell." - General William Booth

"We are all making a crown for Jesus out of these daily lives of ours, either a crown of golden, divine love, studded with gems of sacrifice and adoration, or a thorny crown, filled with the cruel briers of unbelief, or selfishness, and sin." - Aimee Semple McPherson

"The central significance of prayer is not in the things that happen as results, but in the deepening intimacy and unhurried communion with God at His central throne of control in order to discover a sense of God's need in order to call on God's help to meet that need." - E.M. Bounds

"The heavenly Father does not ask for golden vessels. He does not ask for silver vessels. God asks for yielded vessels - those who will submit their will to the will of the Father. And the greatest human attainment in all the world is for a life to be so surrendered to Him that the name of God Almighty will be glorified through that life." - Kathryn Kuhlman
