(Nashville, Tenn.) November 25, 2008 – Maranatha! Music released the Christian Audio Book Classics series November 18, bringing to life four of the most beloved Christian classics of our time from preeminent authors such as E.M. Bounds, Hannah Whitall Smith, Charles Sheldon and Andrew Murray. Each audio book set features a fully dramatized narrative and a thematic ten-song inspirational music set inspired by each audio book’s text.

The collection features multiple-disc volumes of the titles Power Through Prayer (E.M. Bounds), The Christian’s Secret Of A Happy Life (Hannah Whitall Smith), In His Steps (Charles Sheldon) and Absolute Surrender (Andrew Murray). Authors share their most personal and compelling thoughts on prayer, freedom from the bondage of sin, peace and following Christ.

About the selections:

Absolute Surrender
A classic Christian devotional, Absolute Surrender is a collection of the inspirational sermons of Andrew Murray, an influential 19th century preacher and missionary, on the challenging matter of how Christians should properly surrender to God. Seekers after spiritual succor continue to find soulful sustenance and encouragement in this work more than a century after it was published.

In His Steps
A minister and five influential parishioners, deeply shaken by the appearance in town of a mysterious stranger and his impassioned pleas for the poor and downtrodden, begin a year-long experience in Christianity. Each resolves to conduct his life according to the precepts of Christ, applying His behavior to their own lives. In His Steps, a classic novel by Charles Sheldon, addresses the vital question, "What does it really mean to be a Christian?”

Power Through Prayer
Called by many "the greatest book on prayer ever written." Edward McKendree Bounds was a mighty man of God, a Methodist minister and devotional writer. Rev. Bounds is most remembered today for his "Spiritual Life Books.” This book provides helpful methods and suggestions for powerfully interacting with God through prayer.

The Christian’s Secret To A Happy Life
Happy Life a favorite for more than a century. Smith's masterwork is personal, practical and powerful, overflowing with substance for thought.

The projects are narrated by Ingrid DuMosch. She is a vocalist, voice-over artist, worship leader and author. She has sung, arranged and produced vocals for over 100 worship recordings distributed in the USA and throughout the world.
