Pages from My Life's Book
Derek Prince shares his personal search for truth as a young man and his life-changing discovery that truth is a Person, Jesus.
Derek Prince experienced a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ while serving as a hospital attendant with the British Army in World War II.
He says: "Out of this encounter, I formed two conclusions which I have never since had reason to change: first, that Jesus Christ is alive; second, that the Bible is a true, relevant, up-to-date book. These two conclusions radically and permanently altered the whole course of my life."
Derek shares his search for truth - first in philosophy and then in the Bible. After meeting Jesus he was discipled by the Holy Spirit for three years in the desert where God healed Him of a chronic skin disease.
"Derek Prince's life of faith stemmed entirely from God's love for him. He humbly acknowledges that it is all of God. This book shares briefly what his life was like pre-Jesus, the dramatic experience he had with God during World War II that changed his life forever, and some of the main lessons he learnt in those early days about faith, fasting and healing. If like me, you're interested in a detailed account of the actual supernatural experience he had with God, this is the book to get. After reading this book, you'll come away knowing that God doesn't have a select few that He blesses, but that we can all know Him personally, and be blessed and loved in the same way."
"A long time ago I was given a super audio tape of Derek's testimony of his life in the army, finding Jesus, and ending up in Jerusalem with a wife and family. It was so good that I gave it to someone whom I felt would be blessed by receiving it. However, I didn't bank on how much I would miss the joy which comes from hearing such wonderful testimony again and again. For many years I have tried unsuccessfully to locate a copy of that audio tape, but I suddenly became aware of this little book and felt I should get it. What a treasure it is! It doesn't seem to me to be exactly the same as the audio tape [to the best of my recollection], but it really is a wonderful testimony of how Jesus rescues and moves His people [and particularly Derek] into the places of blessing where He needs them to be, and how He guides and helps. I am so pleased to have found this super little book."
