Wayside Springs from the Fountain of Life

Wayside SpringsWayside Springs from the Fountain of Life by Theodore L. Cuyler.

The twenty-five devotional chapters teach Biblical passages and apply them to life. In chapter one Dr. Cuyler describes Israel’s journey from Egypt to Canaan when they obeyed in faith and sang the song “Spring up O well! Sing ye unto him!” with their lips but also dug the well with their shovels. Through the triple process of praying, digging (actions) and singing praise we learn that God provided. Dr. Cuyler teaches that every Christian should be involved in all three types of behavior as they seek God. The title of the book, “Wayside Springs” is God bringing blessing no matter how dry the desert, and the “Fountain of Life” is the crystal stream that flows out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

The Story of Mary Jones and Her Bible

The Story of Mary jones and Her BibleThe Story of Mary Jones and Her Bible by Mary E. Ropes.

Mary Jones was poor and illiterate. She learned to read and walked two miles to study a neighbor's Bible. A resolution became fixed in her mind that she must have a Bible of her own. For six years she did odd jobs for halfpennies, until she had enough to buy a Bible. One bright morning she walked barefoot 25 miles to buy the Bible. When she reached Mr. Charles, he said that he did not have any Bibles for sale. Mary broke down and wept bitterly, and his heart was so touched that he could not deny her a Bible. Mr. Charles, deeply moved by Mary's story, was taken by conviction to supply Bibles for all of Wales. He petitioned before the Religious Tract Society in London, and was warmly received. In March, 1804, the British and Foreign Bible Society was established for the purpose of Bible distribution worldwide and is still active today.

"If but one heart is moved by the perusal of these pages to more earnest work Mary Jones, for the Master, to self-denial and loving service in the spread of His truth; to a more eager study of God's Word, and a greater zeal in circulating and making it known among others—then indeed this little story of the poor Welsh girl and her Bible will not have been written in vain."
