With gentle humor, the Reverend Meade broaches topics throughout Scripture with an evangelist's heart, a scholar's insight, and a grandfather's tender touch. His heart ached to see souls saved and lives mended. But, even further, his passion was to see Christians fulfilling their place in God's plan. Lawrence A. Meade was our "Papa." His life spanned the changes of both world wars and Vietnam, yet he shook the hands of Civil War veterans. In the days when the Rev. Meade preached, people were worried about impending war, financial problems, cultural changes, and the uncertain future. The same things concern people today. Yet because he stood fast on the timeless truths of Scripture, his words are as much for today as they were for yesterday, and they will be as much for tomorrow as they are for today. Gleaned from a lifetime of Christian service, these daily devotions will challenge and encourage, uplift and promote real growth. Each day's devotion is conveniently laid out in a two page format with a key verse, an expanded suggested reading, a meditation, and a prayer. The meditations provide profound insight deep enough for long-time Christians, plain enough for new believers and challenging for everyone. Classic Christianity is suitable not only for personal or family devotions, but also for teachers, bible study leaders, and pastors. An exceptional resource, Classic Christianity provides a foundation for spiritual growth for all who are searching to walk closely with the Lord.
