- Part of the "Quiet Talks" series
- Series sold over 2 million copies
This little home message was prepared in direct response to letters received asking for helpful literature on the subject of home life. The inquiries were so earnest and revealed so much perplexity on these vital matters that the talks had to be written. They run through the life cycle, from the time of the making of the life-friendship of marriage, home, and small children to the sacred time of aging and children departing. Full of encouragement, memorable stories and illustrations, this Quiet Talks book will warmly fill the heart with encouraging wisdom.
About the Author
Samuel Dickey Gordon was never given a doctor's degree, and he preferred to be called Mr. S. D. Gordon. He served as the assistant secretary of the YMCA in Philadelphia for two years and as the secretary of the YMCA in Ohio for nine years. After that time, he devoted himself to public speaking in the US, Europe, and Asia. In 1895, he was invited to the Moody Bible Institute where he delivered a course of lectures. His first Quiet Talks volume was published this same year. Gordon was a warm supporter of Keswick, and he spoke at both the 1909 convention and the 1932 convention. Gordon died in his home in Winston-Salem, NC on June 26, 1936.
