Very little is known about the author of Joy and Strength, Mary Wilder Tileston, except her love of spiritual literature. Although she lived in the 19th century, her devotional selections capture biblical truths and values that will always endure.
Joy and Strength is a compilation of thoughts and writings from giants of the faith including St. Augustine, Thomas a Kempis, Frederick William Faber and hundred of others. A previous book compiled by Tileston, Daily Strength for Daily Needs, shares the same love of literature and insight presented in Joy and Strength.
