Yancey is good. I've read "Where is God When it Hurts?" and thought it was good. I also enjoyed "The Bible Jesus Read." I partially read "What's So Amazing about Grace?" when I was at my daughter's house.

Some books I've read over the past few months are:
A Look at Revelation by James Stewart
A Tale of Three Kings by Gene Edwards
Bill Drost the Pentecost (biography of missionary Bill Drost)
The Militant Church by Lester Sumrall
The Jack Coe Story, From Pup Tent to World's Largest Gospel Tent
God's Law of Sowing and Reaping by S.R. Hanby
I Surrender All, biography of missionary Pauline Gruse
Christianity In the Cross Hairs by Bill Wilson

I don't know how many people here are familiar with a minister named L.R. Ooton who lived in Indiana. He started preaching in the early part of the 20th century as a young man. I'm not sure when he was born or when he died. In 1941 he left the PAJC and formed an organization called the AMA (Apostolic Ministerial Alliance). According to the Fudge book (page 61) at one time they had about 1000 ministers. I've preached in a church in Dayton, OH in which the pastor was affiliated with both the PAJC and with the AMA. That was back in the nineteen seventies. At that time the AMA was quite small and Bro. Ooton was an old man. Bro. Ooton had several small books published over the years. I have several of them but had never read all of them. I recently started reading all of them all the way through and so far I've finished about half of them. They are all small books (actually booklet would be more appropriate). Here are the titles of the books by L.R. Ooton that I am curreintly reading:
Why Doesn't God Destroy the Devil? no copyright date
Dimensions and Glory of Heavenly Jerusalem copyright 1966
Let Us Make Man copyright 1968
Concerning the Times and Seasons copyright 1969
Sermons from the Sermon on the Mount copyright 1970
What is Time? copyright 1970
God's Time Piece no copyright date
The Sower The Seed and the Soil copyright 1973
The Spoken Word; the Written Word; and the Word Made Flesh coyright 1974
The Except Without Exception copyright 1974
Sam also known as Jim Ellis

Apostolic in doctrine
Pentecostal in experience
Charismatic in practice
Non-denominational in affiliation
Inter-denominational in fellowship

Oscar Wilde
"God, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. And sever any tie in my heart except the tie that binds my heart to Yours."
--David Livingstone

"To see no being, not God’s or any, but you also go thither,
To see no possession but you may possess it—enjoying all without labor or purchase—
abstracting the feast, yet not abstracting one particle of it;…."

--Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, Song of the Open Road
