Samuel Logan Brengle began his career as a circuit preacher, and eventually served as a comissioner in the Salvation Army. While unable to preach for 18 months—after he was assaulted and severely injured while street preaching—Brengle began to write the articles that compose his popular Helps to Holiness. Clear, practically focused, and biblically grounded, his work is a classic on Christian living. This collection compiles six of Brengle’s best texts, including Helps to Holiness, and its successor, Heart Talks on Holiness. Once asked what the secret to holiness was, Brengle answered, “Keep in the will of God, obey him, seek him daily, waiting at his gates. Read the Bible regularly. Never neglect secret prayer. Keep testifying to the grace bestowed upon you. Help others.” And true to this credo, this collection introduces the holiness doctrine by exploring these facets of Christian living. Brengle’s varied insights into pursuing holiness, growing in evangelism, and persevering in faith make a valuable addition to any Christian’s library.
