Stories of how one man changed the lives of many and started an International movement that changed the lives of millions of people. Frank Buchman impacted many of todays modern day self help movements most notabally Alcoholics Anonymous. This 13th printing brings back this rare gem for all to read
you are not alone
Life Changers is comprised of century-old stories of men who had their lives changed so profoundly and dramatically. Many of these men wre thought to be hopeless. The original book was reprinted 12 times. Now 100 years later, with its 13th printing, this precious classic is set to change the lives of many more men and women. The words in this book are as true today as they were then. "Life Changers" is also about a man, Frank Buchman. He was first and foremost a teacher. Buchman could change the lives of students and scholars in the course of a single conversation; changing those lives so profoundly and persuasively that the world was in disbelief. Buchman started a movement that reached the shores of America and lives today in the form of many 12-step programs. While the original movement was founded on Christianity, its principles and ideas moved beyond religion and Christianity into a more generic spiritual movement.
Sin and Selfishness
Many deceive themselves. They protest that they want to be rid of sin, and it isnít really true. Others do want to be rid of their sin, but selfishly, for their own ease, their own self-respect, or because they are afraid of being found out. Those find it difficult. But when a man hungers and thirsts to be rid of sin so that he may help others, it really is extraordinary how soon the step is taken from darkness to light, from sleep to waking.
It seems natural and right, when one considers that the message of Jesus was unselfishness. There canít be any vital experience of religion where selfishness has got a hold, whatever form it takes. What surprises one is not the miracle of conversion, but the ease with which even very good men will go on deceiving themselves all their life long; men who are moral and philanthropic, but with some root of selfishness in their hearts, which prevents them from ever experiencing a new birth or saving a man who is lost. Why do these people deceive themselves? It seems such a mad idea, attempting to hoodwink God. I suppose they are not properly awake, that they donít understand what they are doing.

life Changers lives
Life Changers changes lives, April 14, 2009
By Jennifer S (Ball Ground, GA United States)
Not much has changed in the last century when it comes to self evaluation. This book details the lives of men who changed their lives in a dramatic way. Their stories are so poignant that this book has been printed over and over through the years. This book discusses free will. Free will is a term usually associated with religion but in this book it goes in a different direction. Though the idea of Christianity is there, the term relates more to us and our choices.
The book focuses on a man named Frank Buchman, FB, who affects the lives of many people with hi teachings and stories. His words will cause the reader to re-evaluate as well. This is an excellent book for a book club or anyone who likes to discuss philosophy. Some of the ideas presented will cause dissenting views. You will constantly ask why and evaluate your own personal religion. This book has been reprinted 12 times for a reason.
Old things can be good things
Old things can be good things, By T. Norwood (Virginia)
Life Changers has a quality we don't see a lot in the world. This book has "staying power" because the idea of genuine self examination is evident. "F.B" was able to affect lives personal conversations and this book has the same power. The religious structure could not do what he did. He made people ask why and let them see that they don't have to stay the way they were. The way he "ministered" to people made me picture him as a little conscience sitting on the shoulder. The book is a good story for people interested in relationship with God instead of religion.
The Spirit Of Personal Religion
The Spirit Of Personal Religion,
I enjoyed this book, but then I love a good discussion about who we are and why we are here. So if you are into theology and philosophy, this book will certainly be fodder for your brain. This book was first published by Harold Begbie in the early part of the twentieth century and republished recently by Tuchy Palmieri . It definitely has a Christian and biblical slant to it.
The book follows the philosophy of someone called F. B. ( you will find out at the end of the book who he is ) and his slant on personal religion. We follow the tales of several people who have attended some of the house parties that were given by, or in honer of F. B.. The stories are about how their lives were changed by the presence of the philosopher and his words.
Reviews for "Life Changers By Harold Begbie republished by Tuchy Palmieri"
|Reviewed by Georg Mateos
|For the last part of the 1900, life got changed, but not in the way we have wished.
Progress? yes, but the human factor, with those bad knacks, bended many souls. Also many of those souls needed a little push, because very little was changed to promote self-esteem, salvation or religion.
That someone collected experiences to let know that help exist maybe is the first steep to help.
