The Christ of the Indian road by E. Stanley Jones( Book )

97 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jones recounts his experiences in India, where he arrived as a young and presumptuous missionary who later matured into a veteran who attempted to contextualize Jesus Christ within the Indian culture. He names the mistake many Christians make in trying to impose their culture on the existing culture where they are bringing Christ. Instead he makes the case that Christians learn from other cultures, respect the truth that can be found there, and let Christ and the existing culture do the rest

The business of life is to live and to live well. But in this day and age we know almost everything about life except how to live it. We can dissect life and explain its parts and then fail to put it together again in such a way that it becomes a coordinated, harmonious whole. Through the vibrant writings of E. Stanley Jones, discover not only how God desires more for us than we could ever think or imagine, but freely gives us that abundant life of body, mind, and spirit. Abundant Living, the sequel to Victorious Living, continues the journey toward extraordinary life through trusting God an

The Christ of the Mount; a working philosophy of life by E. Stanley Jones( Book )

21 editions published between 1931 and 2006 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the last two years about twenty-five selected men and women, Indian and foreign, have met in the Sat Tal Ashram for two and a half months during the summer for quiet prayer and serious thinking in regard to our Christian message. There in that secluded Himalayan retreat we faced life and God. We opened our minds to the best in other faiths and studied them seriously. And then we asked ourselves whether in Christ we had a message that was vital and inescapable if we were to find life and God. In thinking of the moral implications of the gospel we were driven at once to the Sermon on the Mount. Was it a valid and vital and practical way to live? The first year the writer led the group through the Sermon and discussed it with them. During the following year this book was written. - Preface

Growing spiritually by E. Stanley Jones( Book )

5 editions published between 1953 and 1983 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The necessity for spiritual growth is not merely our personal problem -- it is that, but it is more; it is our world problem. At the center of almost every acute problem -- personal, social, economic, political and international -- is moral and spiritual immaturity. Christian maturity must be the major business and endeavor of our race. It is that or chaos. So this book attempts to point the way to that maturity of character without which we will remain an infantile civilization. Where do we begin? Where everything begins -- with ourselves. I have linked growth with devotional exercises, a page a day. This book can be read a page a day; or, since it is divided into a week's complete thought, it can be used as a study book for group discussions; or, since one theme runs through the whole, it can be read straight through as an ordinary book. - Introduction
Mastery: the art of mastering life by E. Stanley Jones( Book )

10 editions published between 1955 and 1992 in English and Swedish and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art of living is the least learned of all arts. Man has learned the art of existing, of getting by somehow with the demands of life, of escaping into half answers; but he knows little about the art of living, about being able to walk up to life, with all its demands, humbly conscious that he has within him a mastery that is able to face this business of living with adequacy. That is life's central lack. All others are marginal lacks. The modern man knows everything about life except how to live it! The thesis of this book will be: a group of ordinary people were mastered by the risen Christ moving into them in the Holy Spirit; and thus mastered, they moved out to master their circumstances and their relationships into a miniature kingdom of God. It is mastery, within and without. - Introduction
