Finding Treasures

The other day I visited a large Christian bookstore while I was in Ottawa to see the Peterborough Petes. Looking through the SALE shelves I unearthed some hidden treasures. A number of great books had been reduced to $4.99. Talk about a kid in a candy shop...I was having a ball! I left with 5 treasures under my arm. Wow! I was praying for red lights as I drove down the road so I could peruse my purchases.

I picked up three Amy Carmichael books. Gold Cord, Rose from Brier and a third one, the title of which I can't recall. The other two were The Forgotten Spurgeon and The Journals of Jim Elliot. All five are like nuggets of gold! I've already got The Journals of Jim Elliot so I gave the new copy to a great friend.

Journals of Jim Elliot, one of my favorite books!

What books do you treasure? Do you place the highest value on the Book of Books, God's eternal Word? I hope so!

  1. My favorite quote of Jim Elliot: He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    Hadn't thought of that for a while. A timely reminder...thank you.
