Quiet Talks on Power, the best-selling book in the "Quiet Talks" series, explores the awesome potential for spiritual power lying dormant in the life of everyone. Everyone craves power—power to change their lives and circumstances—but few have it. Gordon will expose the channels of your heart to the cleansing flood of God's grace preparing it for an overflow of Divine power. In his unique descriptive style, Gordon avoids trite phrases as he prepares your soul to be connected to the Divine source. You see, power is not a thing, it is a Person. Once properly in union with Him the power can flow. Open your heart and then open the book — and let the power flow.

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.
