|Book Title||Two Kinds of Life|
E.W. Kenyon Bio
Dr. E. W. Kenyon (1867—1948) was born in Saratoga County, New York. At age nineteen, he preached his first sermon. He pastored several churches in New England and founded the Bethel Bible Institute in Spencer, Massachusetts. (The school later became the Providence Bible Institute when it was relocated to Providence, Rhode Island.)
Kenyon served as an evangelist for over twenty years. In 1931, he became a pioneer in Christian radio on the Pacific Coast with his show Kenyon's Church of the Air, where he earned the moniker "The Faith Builder." He also began the New Covenant Baptist Church in Seattle. In addition to his pastoral and radio ministries, Kenyon wrote extensively.
This book is an unveiling of the difference between our natural human life, and the knowledge that is derived from our five senses, in the Life and Nature of God.
Eternal life is the Nature of God. The Greek word is "Zo", the new kind of Life that Jesus brought to the world. It is a strange thing that the Church has majored "manner of life" or "behavior" rather than Eternal life which determines in a very large way the "manner of life". Receiving Eternal Life is the most miraculous incident or event in live. It is called conversion, the New Birth, and the New Creation. Some have called it "getting religion". It is, in reality, God imparting His very Nature, Substance and Being to our human spirits.
The New Creation, then, is a miracle thing. It is man receiving the very life and nature of God Almighty. This nature of God recreates man's spirit and makes him a new species among men. The Church has never majored this New Creation fact. Its leaders have never realized the possibilities that this New Nature offers to men. This book is a thrilling study of what this Life and Nature of God means to the child of God. This book is not a new Philosophy, it is an unveiling of a lost truth, the most vital of all that God has given to us in Christ. It will thrill and challenge you.
