There is nothing more important in the Christian life than getting to
know God better and walking with Him.
This section covers books that help us see God's character more clearly.
Most of these books have been around long enough to be forgotten as the publishers' advertising dollars are devoted to promoting the latest, but not necessarily the greatest books.
We have included some new books which we have not read, but books marked **
are those that Kosta and I consider classics not to be missed.
The God Who Hears by W. Bingham Hunter. I have not had a chance to read this yet, but it appears to be a good source of information on getting to know God through prayer. Since the purpose of prayer is intimacy with God, the author answers questions about prayer by showing us the nature and attributes of God. Just as we pray in faith to One whom we want to know better, He responds not just to our words, but to who we are. The author seeks to answer these basic questions:
What is God like?
How should we pray to Him?
Whom does God hear?
What did Jesus teach us about prayer through his example?
Since God already knows everything, what's left to tell Him?
Can prayer change God's mind?
How do I speak to an invisible God?
Why pray to one who lets people hurt?
Of course, the book covers much more than the above, but I hope I've given
you an idea of what you might find.

The Pursuit of God by
A.W. Tozer. The author defines this book as "a modest attempt to aid God's hungry
children so to find Him. Nothing here is new except in the sense that it is a discovery
which my own heart has made of spiritual realities most delightful and wonderful to me.
Others before me have gone much further into these holy mysteries that I have done, but if
my fire is not large it is yet real, and there may be those who can light their candle at
its flame." Though he had little formal education, Tozer has been considered a 20th
century prophet by those who have heard him speak and read his books. He ministered to
thousands before his death in 1963. This is the book we usually recommend first to those
who have not met him yet. Ten chapters in 128 pages.

We're in the Pacific Time Zone
Our normal office hours when we answer the phone are 10: 30 AM - 4 PM Monday - Friday.
We answer email and ship at other times, but normally take Sundays off.
You can fax your purchase orders to 805-237-8639, but it's good to follow up with a phone call in a couple of days to make sure we got it, if you did not receive a delivery confirmation email. Please include an email address with your purchase order in case we have questions and so we can send your delivery confirmation number to you. You can also attach a signed purchase order to an email.
We prefer you ask your questions about products
and availability by
e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), since that gives us more time to prepare a thoughtful answer and
keeps us from playing phone tag. Please remember to put our email address in
your address book if you have a spam filter or you won't ever get your answer
unless you also leave a phone number. We cannot usually tell you immediately over the phone if a
book is here. We have to walk two blocks to check the warehouse, so I usually
have to call you back or email you anyway. We do check our e-mail frequently
throughout the day when we are at home. If we should be out, and you leave a
message on our answering machine, we sometimes cannot hear the phone number
clearly to return your call. Those are some reasons why we recommend you email
us first. If you want us to call you, please leave your phone number and time
When you do email us, please do not leave the subject blank or just say "Hi" or "Hello" as the subject. We delete those before opening because a lot of spam messages look like that.
We have supplied a subject line in the link provided above that will guarantee your mail will be opened fast.
