In 1979, Ed Stilley was leading a simple life as a farmer and singer of religious hymns in Hogscald Hollow, a tiny Ozark community south of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Life was filled with hard work and making do for Ed, his wife Eliza, and their five children, who lived in many ways as if the second half of the twentieth century had never happened. But one day Ed’s life was permanently altered. While plowing his field, he became convinced he was having a heart attack. Ed stopped his work and lay down on the ground. Staring at the sky, he saw himself as a large tortoise struggling to swim across a river. On his back were five small tortoises—his children—clinging to him for survival. And then, as he lay there in the freshly plowed dirt, Ed received a vision from God, telling him that he would be restored to health if he would agree to do one thing: make musical instruments and give them to children. And so he did. Beginning with a few simple hand tools, Ed worked tirelessly for twenty-five years to create over two hundred instruments, each a crazy quilt of heavy, rough-sawn wood scraps joined with found objects. A rusty door hinge, a steak bone, a stack of dimes, springs, saw blades, pot lids, metal pipes, glass bottles, aerosol cans—Ed used anything he could to build a working guitar, fiddle, or dulcimer. On each instrument Ed inscribed “True Faith, True Light, Have Faith in God.” True Faith, True Light: The Devotional Art of Ed Stilley documents Ed Stilley’s life and work, giving us a glimpse into a singular life of austere devotion.
The latest expanded version of True Worship True Worshipers as of July 4 2014 The purpose of this work is to building a True Biblical understanding of what we call worship. So much of what we do 'in church' has nothing to do with what the scripture calls worship, so if what we are doing is not worship then we are not truly worshiping Him. The purpose is to enable the reader to know what the Word of God say worship is, and to get rid of any religious mindset teaches contrary to scripture so that His people are able to worship in spirit and in truth and then work for the re-establishing of the Centrality of the Kingdom of God and appropriate all that the Kingdom and our King has for us and our generations ahead.

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) urges us to look closely at our Saviour’s description of prayer in the text of Mark 11:24 and discern prayer’s essential qualities. We are directed to earnestly desire the definite objects we plead for, believing that we will receive them, and immediately acting in a manner that demonstrates we have received them. Spurgeon next directs the reader to avoid an empty, merely habitual form of prayer, and seek instead to obtain that new life which allows the cultivation and continuance of the true spirit of prayer. Finally, Spurgeon directs the reader to look up and cry out to God for forgiveness for indifference toward this mighty weapon. May we rejoice, for the Master is awake and will give us what we need.

It’s the start of a luminous Scandinavian summer, and Elsa, the matriarch of an eminent Helsinki family, is dying. Her family members gather around to support her, but their hidden struggles come, too. There’s Elsa’s granddaughter Anna, lost in her own world and concealing an unhappy affair that will not heal; Martti, Elsa’s loving husband, whose dreams are haunted by the spectre of another woman; and Elsa’s adult daughter Eleonoora, anxiously trying to deal with her mother’s illness. As Elsa’s existence becomes more fragile, the anchors of Eleonoora’s childhood memories begin to slip away, and the foundations upon which the family has built its life for forty years start to shift. One afternoon, Anna discovers a secret that goes to the very heart of her family — a secret that takes her back to the restlessness and change of the 1960s, a Europe in the throes of a social revolution, and a stranger named Eeva who entered her family’s lives, changing them forever. As Eeva’s story unfolds, Anna discovers a young woman who mirrors herself in many ways, and whose life illustrates both the danger of giving oneself up too completely to love and the necessity of doing so in order to truly live. Enthralling and beautifully drawn, True charts the experiences of three generations as they try to come to terms with a memory long repressed, and explores the mercy and tenderness that can come from a lie. Ultimately it asks: when we can never really know the people we love, how do we try to be true?
