Ester Ried Yet Speaking

Read by TriciaG

(4.8 stars; 121 reviews)

Authored by Isabella M. Alden under the pen name "Pansy." Fourth in the Chautauqua Girls series. Alfred Ried (brother of Ester Ried from that series) wants to help the hundreds of poor street boys in his city to come to faith and improve their conditions, but is discouraged and overwhelmed with the task. Enter Flossy (Shipley) Roberts, a willing worker who focuses on 7 such boys and especially on one. (Note: While the title suggests this to be in the Ester Ried series and does intersect it, it actually fits better into the Chautauqua Girls series.) (Summary by TriciaG)

A wonderful witness

(5 stars)

Some will say this book is gilt-edged, rose-tinted, and it's easy for a writer to make this work. Flossie Shipley is now Mrs Evan Roberts, and meets Alfred Ried from the Ester Ried series. Together with new friends and old they take up the challenge of befriending, witnessing to, and winning to Christ a group of the most deprived and unwinnable young men and their families known to the local police officer. Th key is, in my opinion, that Flossie determines to have a Christian home: one where not only is Christ honoured, but that every penny or hundred dollars, every colour of decor or sparkling cut glass goblet is to serve her Master as she does. Don't laugh or scorn a "rich benefits poor" prejudice you didn't know you harboured. I learned more about reaching individuals from this book than from almost any other, and I use its principles, even if I can't afford it's methods. Thanks to these principles being lived out, I do witness to others, and I have served my Lord as I longed to.

truly engaging

(4.5 stars)

Light reading with moral teachings throughout. Less deaths and thereby easier listening. Should anyone be unsure of religion, these books offer an opportunity to engage with God’s kingdom.

Perfect Ending

(5 stars)

From sin to grace by the power of God - available to all whether rich or poor.

Chautauqua and Ester Ried converge.

(5 stars)

TriciaG is correct in that this book belongs to the Chautauqua series, but i first listened to it as a part of Ester Ried. let me say it's definitely one to re-experience no matter which series you are reading. :-) Dec 2020 and June 2021

Ester Ried Yet Speaking

(5 stars)

If each Christian could be so impressed as to realize that they are the light for a hurting, stumbling world, how much more earnestly would they live their lives!

(5 stars)

The book itself is wonderfully enriching and thought-provoking. The reader is absolutely excellent. No improvement needed.

Third time I listened to this book
