Author: Sam Wellman

Publisher: Barbour Books (1996)

No preacher before him had used the mass media to such advantage. No preacher before or after him has delivered the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ to so many. Billy Graham, who has preached in person in more than eighty nations to more than 110 million people, has reached hundreds of millions more through radio and television. Yet since his first outdoor meeting in 1949, the focus of this extraordinary North Carolina-born evangelist has remained the same: to proclaim the Christian faith to nonbelievers. Unquestionably regarded as one of the leading Christian figures of his generation, Billy Graham has become a friend to presidents, but more importantly, a messenger of hope to the lost.

Buddhism For Beginners

This user’s guide to Buddhist basics takes the most commonly asked questions—beginning with “What is the essence of the Buddha’s teachings?”—and provides simple answers in plain English.

Author: Michael Green

Publisher: Sovereign World (2002)

In this book, well-known author Michael Green provides readers with an essential guide that will help us find our way through the increasingly disorientating 'religious' maze. In an easy-to-read manner he discusses views held by many and highlights important differences between Christianity and other faiths. The author claims that no other teacher except Christ even claimed to bring God to us; no other teacher dealt radically with the problem of human wickedness; no other teacher broke the final barrier - death; and no other teacher offered to actually live within his followers.

Chasing The Dragon

Author: Jackie Pullinger

Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton (1980)

Until it was pulled down, the Walled City was Hong Kong's most foreboding territory. It was a lawless place, dominated by the Triads, and which the police hesitated to enter. Strangers were unwelcome. Drug smuggling and heroin addiction flourished, as did prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set sail from England in 1966 she had no idea that God was calling her to the Walled City. Yet, as she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal Triad gangsters were converted, prostitutes quit, and Jackie discovered a new treatment for drug addiction: baptism in the Holy Spirit.
