Description

James Gilchrist Lawson (1874–1946) was a prolific British Christian author and compiler.

James Gilchrist Lawson (1874–1946) was a prolific British Christian author and compiler. Most notably, he compiled biographical sketches into Deeper Experiences of Famous Christians (1911), which is a landmark text in Pentecostal and Charismatic history. This book draws broadly from Christian history and the Wesleyan holiness movement to include many post-conversion experiences with the Holy Spirit, which Lawson believed to be the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

James Gilchrist Lawson (1874-1946) was an American evangelist and hymn writer who compiled several best-selling books of Christian biography and poetry. The reader should understand that there is no question about the genuine faith of all those "famous" Christians, that they indeed did have these "deeper experiences", and that most if not all of them were used mightily by God. I fall back to what I said earlier-discernment is needed.

I have the ORIGINAL of this book. Aside from the Bible itself, it is the SINGLE BEST CHRISTIAN BOOK I have ever read, bar none!
I'm not alone in saying this. That's how Dallas Willard described it, and I quite agree! So I bought 3 of this version because I needed them quickly . . .to give out on a trip, and it was the only version that would arrive in time..
It has been so radically edited as to be disgraceful! I totally missed the LARGE PRINT label in the top right corner.
So after I showed how marked up my own original version was -- proclaiming it's status in my own collection -- I gave a wrapped copy of this version to my first friend with honor! Hush filled the table. As he opened it . . . as we all looked at the HUGE PRINT and abundant WHITE SPACE the entire table burst out laughing! "Arnie . . . it's perfect for poor folks down at your level!" Another said, "Your daughter teaches 1st grade. She might be able to use it!"
Pardon me for sounding derogatory, but to so radically edit such a rich and powerful work as this . . . well I can't imagine who you would give it to. But if you beautifully framed a picture of the Mona Lisa IN CARTOON VERSION for someone, that's who you would give this to.
As for me, I would rather get my money back. Deeper Experiences of Famous Christians

This edition is a faithful reproduction of the original that was copyrighted in 1911. Several other printings have followed throughout the years, and I have another from 1981. Amazon sells a large print edition, but at approximately 30,000 words it is far short of the approximately 120,000 words in the original. With subjects & experiences this deep, I think the reader would do well to consider what the author had to say in his original research. Trying to take a shortcut to understanding "deeper experiences" simply doesn't make sense and could invite wrong impressions and conclusions.

I will make quick mention of a small distraction with this edition. It is "digitally reproduced". I'm not sure what all this process entails, but as another reviewer also mentioned the print is somewhat light and not always crisp. It is, however, fully readable and you soon get used to it. But also in this process typos have found their way into the text. I suppose this is all due to optical character recognition (OCR) gone awry. The errors are infrequent, but my eye caught several--and these errors are not in my 1981 edition.

This book is a somewhat in-depth glimpse at what in most cases would be considered the baptism with the Holy Spirit. Discernment is needed, study is needed, and weighing all matters Scripturally is necessary to properly begin to understand this subject. In reading this book again I have now had some unexpected reservations arise. While I do not want to enter a debate between Calvanistic and Armenian interpretations (e.g., predestination vs. man's free will), it seems that the author has a peculiar disdain for any concept of predestination... which of course puts him at odds with many Bible verses. I fear he has slipped his personal dislike of this subject into the accounts of others. Also, some of his descriptions of people described as being under the influence of the Holy Spirit seem to enter the realm of hyperbole. I hardly think that people with long hair would jerk so violently that their hair would: "...crack almost as loud as a wagoner's whip." (Page 239) Possible? Of course, if God should will it so and spare their necks from breaking. But I am very cautious when particular accounts are far more sensational than Scriptural accounts. I'm sorry, but my spirit could not automatically accept all that was written.

Furthermore, I think too strong a case was made for equating the baptism with the Holy Spirit with what is called "entire sanctification". These are different subjects (not all would agree) and much confusion enters if thought otherwise. For sure, those who experience this mighty baptism with the Holy Spirit will subsequently be encouraged to obedience and to put away sin likely more successfully than before, but I would be wary of the man who says he no longer sins at all. That is no excuse to continue to sin, that is Scriptural regarding our condition (again, not all would agree). In fact, I would say that the person who claims to never sin has a very inadequate and superficial understanding of what sin is. Another thought: for the person who wants to put the predominant theology into a slot for the bulk of the experiences reviewed, it would fall into late nineteenth century Methodism as there are many references to this in the book.

The reader should understand that there is no question about the genuine faith of all those "famous" Christians, that they indeed did have these "deeper experiences", and that most if not all of them were used mightily by God. I fall back to what I said earlier--discernment is needed.

We were thrilled to obtain this valuable Christian resource at such a reasonable price. Other reviewers have noted that this is the complete original book, unabridged, unedited. We found the digital reproduction to be of perfect quality. One review complained of the print being very light. This was not the case with our copy. Will refer to this book frequently.

Excellent collection of Christian biographies pertaining to a deeper walk with God after salvation. The author is careful not to insert much of his own opinion. In fact, much of the book is excerpted from the actual testimonies of Christian heroes like D. L. Moody, Frances Ridley Harvergal, and others.

Reading about the true life experiences of famous Christians throughout history is very inspiring, because it reveals these Christians as the real people they were, experiencing the same trials and temptations as we all do. It brings them to life and we walk in their shoes and see in our own minds the miracles of God as He worked in their lives. This book brings all of that to life for us and hence inspires us to seek God for His direction and miracles in our own lives.

I do not want to preach a Gospel that is only philosophy, as many do. I believe the Gospel is the power of God to change a life. This book tells the stories of the great men of God who operated in the power of the Holy Spirit, bringing in great revivals and salvation to the multitudes, just as Jesus himself did. Reading these stories greatly motivated me to seek that power of God to reach the hearts of people for him. This book has changed my life. I highly recommend it for people of prayer who desire the power to reach the hearts of people with revival.

This book was a great encouragement to me and reminded me that God is still here and still speaks. What He has done for others, He can and will do in a heart that is surrendered to Him. Some of the stories were of people whom I didn't know about, and others were reminders of how He worked with great power through some more well known Christians. All of the stories were encouraging and challenging. When I finished I picked up Thomas A Kempis' book "Imitation of Christ"...seemed like a good way to meditate on God's work in others & how it might become more personal for me.
