E.M. Bounds: Man of Prayer

Front Cover
"The name of E. M. Bounds is familiar to anyone who has an interest in prayer. In a world awash in books that jam the isles of bookstores everywhere, few will even begin to survive the lifetime of the authors, but that is not true of E. M. Bounds. After a century, many of his books are still in print. Their long life is a testimony to the timelessness of the prayer lessons he learned from his own deep Christian spirituality. // In view of the popularity of E. M. Bounds writings, it seems incredible that so little about him has been published. To remedy that amazing state of affairs, Lyle W. Dorsett has read every scrap of paper related to Bounds, and the family has made available for the first time a private collection of the Bounds correspondence. From that, Dorsett wrote this account of Bounds' life.

About the author (1991)

E. M. (Edward McKendree) Bounds (1835 1913) has given us

a powerful legacy of prayer, believing it to be the strongest link

between God and man. Bounds was a pastor and editor who

spent many years reading, writing, praying, and taking part in

revival ministry. Deeply concerned for the world, Bounds would

rise at 4 a.m. to pray. Since the time of the apostles, no man

besides Bounds has left such a rich inheritance of research into

the life of prayer.
