  • Author: Jack Hayford
  • Publisher: Bridge-Logos Publishers
  • Publication Date: 1977

Prayer is not the mystical experience of a few special people, but an aggressive act in the face of impossibility—an act that may be performed by anyone who accepts the challenge of learning to pray. This is a practical, how-to book that will stir up and encourage you to pray! Pastor Hayford is convinced that prayer can change anything. “The impossible doesn’t exist,” he writes. “His is the power; ours is the prayer. Without Him, we cannot. Without us, He will not.” Hayford will show you how to face what might seem to be impossibilities, how to be honest with God and yourself, wage effective spiritual warfare, and find victory for your life. Using real-life vignettes, Hayford offers great insights into the power of prayer with chapters such as Reprogramming the Freed, The Syndrome of Silence, and The Praying That Sets Boundaries.

Pastor Jack's classic book, Prayer is Invading the Impossible, is a well-written exposé concerning his belief about the relationship of the kingdom of God and the centrality of prayer. This book is not just about prayer. One will be surprised to find all the references to the kingdom of God and God's awesome purposes for believers today. There are ideas about prayer, praying, and being a person of prayer. There are also practical tips and stirring discourses regarding prayer… It will get your batteries charged!

Hey God!

  • Author: Frank Foglio
  • Publisher: Bridge-Logos Publishers
  • Publication Date: 1972
  • Pages: 137

A rollicking story of the Holy Spirit's visitation on an Italian-Catholic family, this book is about Mama Foglio, her cantankerous husband and ten rambunctious kids. They were poor, but not forgotten by God. One day, another poor family burst into their lives and told them about the Lord. Thus begins one of the most hilarious, warm-hearted, and moving testimonies to God’s mysterious ways. You will find a faith that does not put on airs, that is real in the midst of a real God. You'll cry, you'll chuckle, you may even laugh out loud at this remarkable woman who loved Jesus Christ without reservation and believed He was willing to do anything you asked Him to that would glorify God.

I have read many books during my lifetime but rarely have I read a book which has made an impact on me like Frank Foglio’s masterpiece Hey, God!. The spiritual message contained in the book not only transcends organized religious groups, but is entirely blind to all national, political, racial, social, and economic boundaries…It is a moving and inspiring message which I am convinced will have a transforming effect on countless lives.

—Dr. Herbert H. Tarson, former Senior Vice President, National University, San Diego, CA

Frank Foglio, associated with the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International, an organization whose purpose it is to reach businessmen all over the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, was a real estate salesman in California.

Run Baby, Run

  • Author: Nicky Cruz and Jamie Buckingham
  • Publisher: Bridge-Logos Publishers
  • Publication Date: 1968
  • Pages: 335

What a thrilling story! This is the dramatic testimony of Nicky Cruz’s desperate battle against drugs, alcoholism and the brutal environment in which he lived. He was the warlord of a vicious New York City gang, an experienced thief, mugger and hardened violent street criminal—all before he reached the age of eighteen. This new edition includes a personal challenge from Nicky Cruz, his response to teenage violence today, and an action plan for concerned parents. Gangs and violence are not issues of the past. Violence is alive in the streets, in families, in schools, and in the community. Though written almost forty years ago, the message is relevant to today’s youth, to those mired in drugs, crime, and dysfunctional families. It shows how Jesus can transform anyone who truly seeks Him.

The story of Nicky Cruz is remarkable. It has all the elements of tragedy, violence and intrigue, plus the greatest ingredient of all: the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

—Billy Graham

Nicky Cruz and thousands like him are not just moving examples of the Good Shepherd’s faithful love, they are also signs of the times, which we had better not fail to read. They are an encouraging sign that God is acting with new power in our time, so that we should not be afraid to declare the Gospel boldly to anyone!

—Edward D. O’Connor, C.S.C; Associate Professor, Theology, University of Notre Dame

Nicky Cruz was the leader of the Mau-Maus, a violent New York City gang when he was led to Christ by David Wilkerson, co-author of The Cross and the Switchblade. Nicky is the founder of Nicky Cruz Outreach, which helps teenagers with troubled lives. He is the author of seventeen books and continues to preach around the world, helping youth turn their lives over to Jesus.

Laying the Foundation: Achieving Christian Maturity

  • Author: James Lee Beall
  • Publisher: Bridge-Logos Publishers
  • Publication Date: 1976
  • Pages: 389

According to Beall, if you can’t explain it, then you don’t really know it. This principle, he asserts, applies to Christian doctrine, as well. The question, then, is: Do you really know (understand) what you believe? Using Hebrews 6:1-3 as a springboard, Beall takes the reader through the "foundation stones" for the doctrine of Salvation. This book is a serious attempt to achieve a biblical foundation without trying to defend any particular tradition or denomination. In a question and answer format, he guides the reader through in-depth inductive Bible study, covering topics such as repentance, faith, baptism, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. At the end of each chapter, Beall includes review questions to reinforce your learning.

James Lee Beall has, for more than 50 years, been in pastoral ministry at Bethesda Christian Church in Michigan. BCC is on a 192 acre campus that includes a Christian K-12 school, a Bible Institute and radio studios from which he broadcasts a daily message. He is the author of six books, including Your Pastor Your Shepherd and How to Achieve Security, Confidence and Peace.

I had known Dr. Bennett since 1960 and looked on him as the first non-Pentecostal to receive national attention upon receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an Episcopal priest in Van Nuys. He ministered with me in seminar at ORU (Oral Roberts University), and later spoke in chapel. I also enjoyed the book, The Holy Spirit and You. It’s blessed ORU’s Seminary as a textbook all these years.

—Oral Roberts, Chancellor, Oral Roberts University

Dennis Bennett was one of the key figures in the early charismatic renewal movement when he announced in 1960 to his St. Mark’s Episcopal Church congregation in Van Nuys, CA, that he had experienced a new outpouring of God’s Spirit.

Prayer is intended to be a conversation—a two-way dialogue between God and you. As with any form of communication, you must learn to speak and listen.
