Into the Light of Christianity


Baker Book House 1959

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In April of 1954, William J. Schnell—an active Jehovah’s Witness for over 30 years—wrestled with God in prayer for an entire night. As a result, he entered into a new relationship with God. In this volume, Schnell retraces his journey from a place of frustration and defeat to a life lived in the light of Christianity. Along the way, he makes a discovery: “I [came] to the inevitable conclusion that a born-again Christian can only grow and mature if he or she constantly confesses his or her salvation to other men.” Into the Light of Christianity is a witness to Schnell’s experience of being born again, and his desire for others to experience the same freedom and assurance.
