The church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men and women.
It is not great talents or great learning or great preachers that God needs, but men and women great in holiness, great in faith, great in love, great in fidelity, great for God . . . . These can mold a generation for God. The words of E.M. Bounds read as though they were written today; 'So we come to one of the crying evils of these times, maybe of all times - little or no praying.'
Bounds chastises: 'Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still.' He instructs: 'The man - God's man - is made in the closet.' And he inspires: 'A prayerful minister has passed beyond the regions of the popular . . . into a sublime and mightier region, the region of the spiritual.' Written for both leaders and laymen.
