Editorial Reviews

Review

In the calm and quiet places of the heart, many Christians seek to hear for themselves "the still small voice" of God. The oldest Christian traditions invite listening as well as speaking when praying. Yet often the Voice seems barely audible, drowned out by the cry of our own wishes or thoughts that call for immediate attention. Echoes Of Eternity: Listening To The Father gathers (in 365 short devotions) "impressions" of God's words from years of listening. Each meditation includes a scripture verse and encouraging words that speak of Christ as our anchor, the treasure of God's love, His abiding peace, and more. Every entry opens the door for the reader to meditate further and hear what God is saying. Echoes Of Eternity can facilitate a quiet moment alone with God at any time or place. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Each day there is a short but powerful word of encouragement or counsel written as if God is speaking directly to you.
Bob A. Martin
If one reads just the one daily segment each day, there is much nourishment for every day in the calendar!

This little book helps you to listen to God and his words of encouragement to you. Each day there is a short but powerful word of encouragement or counsel written as if God is speaking directly to you. You will be uplifted and renewed in your awareness of God's love for you. Just finished it last year and am starting all over again, its that good. Enjoy!

After hearing about this book for many years, I finally bought it and enjoy reading the devotionals every morning. Short and meaty, Helms has a tender manner of redirecting us back to our path of following Jesus. I bought two other copies as gifts, and now want to order more to give to our adult children and spouses, and my girlfriends.

I read this book daily, first thing in the morning, and find that the words Helms uses usually lead to some good, deep thinking about how I approach life, both the good and the bad. I've sent it to several friends and like the fact that we are sharing, quietly and privately, in the same initial thoughts.

This devotional book made me respect the author. He was deeply brave and honest.He was able to allow his sins and failures to be publicly exposed for all to see.In spite of his defects he was a rigorously honest man.This book also gave me a deeper insightinto how to understand God.

Hal M. Helms (1923-1997) was a Congregational minister who served five different congregations between 1949 and 1974. For twenty-three years he also served on the clergy staff and lived at the Community of Jesus in Orleans, Massachusetts writing a number of devotional books and producing modern versions of Christian classics for contemporary readers including "Pilgrims Progress" and "Confessions of St. Augustine". With Echoes Of Eternity: Listening To The Father, Hal Helms compiled 365 meditations on different scripture verses with a special focus emphasizing the necessity to listen for the still, small voice within us, as well as to speak when we pray. Each of the daily meditations comprising Echoes Of Eternity includes a scripture verse and encouraging words that speak of Chris as our personal anchor, the treasure of God's love, and the abiding peace of God that can sooth even the most troubled of souls. Very highly recommended and with a conveniently pocket-sized portability, Echoes Of Eternity can accompany the reader anywhere for contemplative reading at any appropriate time.

Recd book can't put it down I have had his vol one for 10 years still read his daily writings and scripture. No one has ever moved me and kept my attention for so long. Chaplain Helms is no longer with us he is with the Father. Just where he belongs. Started reading vol one after my divorce needing clarity passion understanding of why bad things happen to good people. Vol one has become my friend and journal writing events and major growth in my journey. Never knew he had a 2cd volume until I was looking for a book on Amazon and found this version which is written from a different time in his life he was sick and knew it was time to go, his wife helped him put the book together because he was so fragile and wanted it done before he was called home. I can read the maturity in his words as he gives his perspective on each Bible Verse chosen for that day. If you are wanting to learn more about Gods insight and Word or if you are needing to rise above a worldly situation I would highly recommend both Vol. One & Two. It is sad to me they are not printing any more copies maybe one day they will again. So happy to be able to purchase these special little books they are a one in a lifetime.
Thank You

I have never read a Christian book like it where God speaks to you in a uplifting way, yet pulls no punches of being soft to soothe the reader when sin is the issue of contention, but is dealt with in a gentle and loving way. As an author of the Christian devotional book, "Walking With The Lord" I eagerly recommend you to read this wonderful book and the companion book volume II. I am certain you will be rewarded reading these books as I have! James Russell - Author.
