I picked this up free on Kindle a few years ago after hearing Ravi Zachaias mention Frank Boreham. I read a bit then but recently I refound it. Good stuff and free for Kindle. The book looks at the life Texts of various people some fictional. Can you guess whose is "I am the resurrection and the life..." These quotes come from the life of Ebenezer Erskine, someone of whom I had never heard.
"He felt, too, that the Positive must precede the Negative. The person of the most High must come before the precepts of the Most High; the Thou Shalts must come before the Thou Shalt Nots."
"In the typical novel the villain is a man who does what he ought not to do; in thetales that Jesus told the villain is a man who leaves undone what he ought to have done."
"Between Christmas Day and New Year's Day, we invariably frame a variety of good resolutions; we register a number of excellent resolves. But, for the most part, they come to nothing; and they come to nothing because they are so largely negative. 'I will never again do such-and-such a thing'; 'I will never again behave in such-and-such a way'"
"The soul cannot flourish on a principle of subtraction; it can only prosper on a principle of addition."
These quotes are right up my alley these days as I continue to move forward in making tiny, positive changes in my life.
