Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 1 - John's Story
      "I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; I fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him down the labyrinthine ways Of my own mind; and in the midst of tears I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Up vistaed hopes, I sped; And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmÈd fears, From those strong Feet that followed, ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 2 - The Wooing Lover - part 1
      Who it Was that Came "But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbed pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat--and a Voice beat More instant than the Feet-- 'All things betray thee, who betrayest Me'" --"The Hound of Heaven." "Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 2 - The Wooing Lover - part 2
      The Forgotten Preacher. With a simplicity in sticking to his main point, John goes quietly on: "that he might be a witness of the light." That's rather interesting. It was of the light he was to bear witness; not of himself. It was not the technical accuracy of his work, not its scholarliness and skill that absorbed him, but that the crowd got t ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 2 - The Wooing Lover - part 3
      The Oldest Family. "But," John goes on. That was a steadying "but." It was hard on John to recall how they treated his Friend and Master. But there is a "but." There's another aide, an offset to what he's been saying, a bright bit to offset the black bit. But as many as did receive Him. Some received. Jesus was rejected, yes, abominably, contemp ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 3 - The Lover Wooing - part 1
      "Still with unhurrying chase, And unperturbed pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy Came the following Feet, And a Voice above their beat-- Naught shelters thee, who will not shelter Me.'" --"The Hound of Heaven." "O thou hope of Israel, the Saviour thereof in the time of trouble, why shouldst thou be as a sojourner in the land, and ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 3 - The Lover Wooing - part 2
      Way-marks in John's Narrative. Out of this simple running account several things sift themselves, and stand out to our eyes. The action of the story swings chiefly about Jerusalem. The other parts seem but background to make Jerusalem stand out big. In this John's Gospel differs radically from the other three. They are absorbed chiefly with the ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 3 - The Lover Wooing - part 3
      The Glory-Coloured Thread. It is a relief to turn now to the chief figure in this tapestried picture of John's weaving. Here are glory-coloured threads of bright yellow. They easily stand out, thrown in relief both by the pleasing blues and the disturbing blacks. It is the figure of the Man on the errand, intent on His wooing, absorbed in His gr ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 4 - Closer Wooing
      An Evening with Opening Hearts: the Story of a Supper and a Walk in the Moonlight and the Shadows Nigh and nigh draws the chase, With unperturbed pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, And past those noised Feet A Voice comes yet more fleet-- "Lo, naught contents thee, who content'st not Me." --"The Hound of Heaven." "I came forth ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 5 - The Greatest Wooing
      A Night and a Day With Hardening Hearts: the Story of Tender Passion and of a Terrible Tragedy "Now of that long pursuit Comes on at hand the bruit; That Voice is round me like a bursting sea: 'And is thy earth so marred, Shattered in shard on shard? Lo, all things fly thee, for thou fliest Me! Strange, piteous, futile, thing! Wherefore ...read
Quiet Talks on John's Gospel 6 - An Appointed Tryst Unexpectedly Kept
      A Day of Startling Joyous Surprises "Halts by me that footfall: Is my gloom, after all, Shade of His hand outstretched caressingly? 'Ah, fondest, blindest, weakest, I am He whom thou seekest! Thou drawest love from thee, who drawest Me.'" --"The Hound of Heaven. "After I am raised up I will go before you into Galilee."--Mark xiv. 28. ...read

Quiet Talks on Prayer 1 - Prayer the Greatest Outlet of Power
      Five Outlets of Power. A great sorrow has come into the heart of God. Let it be told only in hushed voice--one of His worlds is a prodigal! Hush your voice yet more--ours is that prodigal world. Let your voice soften down still more--we have consented to the prodigal part of the story. But, in softest tones yet, He has won some of us back with H ...read
Quiet Talks on Prayer 2 - Prayer the Deciding Factor in a Spirit Conflict
      A Prehistoric Conflict. In its simplest meaning prayer has to do with a conflict. Rightly understood it is the deciding factor in a spirit conflict. The scene of the conflict is the earth. The purpose of the conflict is to decide the control of the earth, and its inhabitants. The conflict runs back into the misty ages of the creation time. Th ...read
Quiet Talks on Prayer 3 - The Earth, the Battle-Field in Prayer
      Prayer a War Measure. This world is God's prodigal son. The heart of God's bleeds over His prodigal. It has been gone so long, and the home circle is broken. He has spent all the wealth of His thought on a plan for winning the prodigal back home. Angels and men have marvelled over that plan, its sweep, its detail, its strength and wisdom, its te ...read
Quiet Talks on Prayer 4 - Does Prayer Influence God?
      How God Gives. Some one may object to all this that the statements of God's word do not agree with this point of view. At random memory brings up a few very familiar passages, frequently quoted. "Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and will shew thee great things, and difficult, that thou knowest not."[9] "And call upon Me in the day of tro ...read
Quiet Talks on Prayer 5 - Why the Results Fail
      Breaking with God. God answers prayer. Prayer is God and man joining hands to secure some high end. He joins with us through the communication of prayer in accomplishing certain great results. This is the main drive of prayer. Our asking and expecting and God's doing jointly bring to pass things that otherwise would not come to pass. Prayer chan ...read
