The Soul-Winner's Secret by Samuel Logan Brengle (1860 - 1936).

Samuel Logan Brengle was a commissioner in the Salvation Army. His books are known for the practicality, joyfulness and authenticity. His life was spent working with people on the streets, so his insights into the work of the Holy Spirit are relevant to everyday life. His holiness was that of the street, the kitchen, and everyday life. His stories are of men and women living their daily lives. In this book, Brengle explores how to live the Christian life so that we are full of contagious joy; how to walk with Our Saviour in such close fellowship that our heart for others is as a flame of fire to flood the world with joy! <br><br>

From the Preface by Commissioner Frederick Booth-Tucker: Many will be inspired by these pages to rise up and make a new start. There is not a piece of advice in the whole book that will tempt the weakest saint to despair, no fancied heights which will be beyond their reach. Certainly none can read the book without getting a new impetus to do and dare for God and souls, and none who carry out these instructions can fail to become in the highest, noblest and most lasting sense, successful soul-winners. (Summary by Beth Thomas and the Preface)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/soulwinnerssecre00bren
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Chapter 10 is recorded. I'll get to editing it... well, sooner or later. :roll: In the meantime, though, I'll read chapter 5, too. :mrgreen:

Had opportunity to record my sections this morning, and also No. 4, Zeal. So, may I claim it as well?
Maybe I can claim some others later.

Thanks Larry, you have Ch 4.

Also, while you are recording, did you realize you are the last reader with unrecorded sections in the previous Brengle book "Way of Holiness"? When you finish up with that one we can catalogue it!
