I Found the Key to the Heart of God by M. Basilea Schlink (E-book)

In Mother Basilea’s personal story we are given an insight into the ways of the heavenly Father as He prepares His child for a unique ministry. We turn the pages as we would the score of some great symphony and whether the music is light or whether it is the deep chords that are struck, our hearts cannot fail to respond. The response will be an inner searching of our own hearts and lives, followed by love and adoration for our Lord Jesus. The reader seeking a greater fulfillment in his Christian life and service will discover in these pages the key to the very heart of God.

  • Realities in the Desert 40 Years of the Heavenly Father’s Loving Care

In the days following World War II the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary, under the leadership of Mother Basilea Schlink and Mother Martyria Madauss, was born out of a revival among a group of young girls in Germany. The Sisterhood grew, branches began to be open worldwide, and in 1968 one was opened on the desert outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona.

The Royal Priesthood

In a perishing world crying out for help, messengers are needed who come from the presence of the living God – messengers who have been empowered by Him, reflect the glory of His countenance and truly are “royal priests”. Today Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, is asking, “Whom shall I send?

Written in the aftermath of World War II, THE ROYAL PRIESTHOOD is of striking relevance for our times.

Back to the Cross – Bringing the Reformation Full-Circle

Lightning struck – right in the path of the young law student Martin Luther. What if he had been hit? Where would he have found himself? That is the big question. A question non of us can evade today…

Dr. Richard Harvey, an author and researcher who descends from a German Jewish family, reveals some of the worst antisemitic sculptures the world has ever created. Where are they? On or in about fifty churches in Germany. The Judensau, or Jew Pig was endorsed in both Catholic and Protestant churches, even Martin Luther’s own church in Wittenberg Germany, where it seeded ideas for Luther’s most grotesque writings and ultimately the Holocaust.

Repentance the Joy-Filled Life

Repentance – the gateway to heaven!
Repentance – the way home to the Father’s heart and to overflowing joy! For what is repentance but the tailwind driving us into the open arms of the Father? A foretaste of heaven. A gift of the Holy Spirit. In answer to prayer, the Spirit falls afresh on us, breaking our hard and self-righteous hearts – only for God our Father and Maker to take those broken pieces into His hands and form an new vessel to His glory.

From Ridicule to Respect

Is there still hope for our Church?

Only on one condition. We must be willing to take a fresh look at our 2000 year heritage and the beginnings of Christianity.

A unusual and thought-provoking perspective.

Prayers in Preparation

God in His almighty love always has exactly as much strength and aid prepared for you as you need.

God is waiting for our prayer of faith. He has promised to answer prayer, and His name is Yes and Amen. In our prayer times today we receive what we need for tomorrow – a trusting spirit and the courage to endure suffering and to stand up for our faith.

Stepping into the Breach

Is there still hope for our Church?

Only on one condition. We must be willing to take a fresh look at our 2000 year heritage and the beginnings of Christianity.

A unusual and thought-provoking perspective.

The Cross in the Crossfire

As we draw nearer to the time of Jesus’ second coming, it is his cross that will unite or divide us. How we perceive the cross will determine our future, and none of us will be able to dodge the issue indefinitely. For each of us personally, there will be a “falling” or a “rising”.


God longs to enfold us in his love, anchoring us firmly within himself. The tossed and battered ship of our feelings cannot easily be torn away from a mooring place that is kept safe by God himself – not even by the mighty waves of human tragedy and natural disaster.

Just as rescue procedures are in place for the event of a disaster, so too our heavenly Father has already prepared a rescue plan for each one of us personally, a plan that takes our weaknesses and inabilities into account

Bride of Jesus Christ

Chosen to be a bride of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God. Called to the wedding feast of the Lamb. For me, nothing is so wonderful, so precious, as this aspect of the Christian experience. It was, and still is, the greatest discovery in my life. And so this little book is not an intellectual discussion about what it means to be a bride of Jesus Christ; rather it is a personal testimony, written against the background of Holy Scripture.

My All For Him

MY ALL FOR HIM had a profound impact on my relationship with Jesus. Basilea Schlink’s words helped me to fall passionately in love with Jesus as my Bridegroom. I will read it again and again.

Citizens of Heaven

Knowing that heaven is a reality makes all earthly sorrow fade away. What we suffer at this present time cannot be compared at all with the glory that is going to be revealed to us.

Beautiful pictures.

Realities of Faith

“This is a book for a prayer group, for it is so faith-inspiring. It makes wonderful reading for family devotions; your children will love the stories. And it is the best of all Mother Basilea’s books for acquainting Christians with the spirit and mission of the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary; your life will never be the same after you’ve had a taste of REALITIES OF FAITH.”

Joy Comes in the Morning

With Jesus, joy – not suffering – is the end of the story.
