Tuesday Tome - Vance Havner: Peace Like a River

Yesterday, a friend gave me this little, out-of-print book of folksy meditations by Vance Havner. I will enjoy reading it. Havner's style is a strong dose of old gospel preacher with a good measure of winsome humorist thrown in. Thanks, Jerry!

Publisher's description...
This third collection of meditations, after the pattern of By the Still Waters and Rest Awhile, makes no claim to be profound. Surely in these days we must all be “fed up” with efforts at profundity. A miserable generation, buried under the ruins of its Tower of Babel needs simple truth like sick bodies need old-fashioned air and rest and sunshine. Like David in the cave of Adullam, men long for a drink of water from the well at Bethlehem. This little volume seeks to offer a cooling drink to parched souls in a dry land where no water is. It is offered in the name of Him who invited all to drink of Living Waters never to thirst again. “As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.” There is good news from heaven: it is a day of good tidings from above and we would not hold our peace
