Edna Lister’s Works

Edna Lister was an avid reader with eclectic tastes ranging from ancient history to current events, philosophy, mysticism, science in all its branches, psychology and metaphysics. She also loved mysteries, which she claimed sharpened one’s powers of logic and deductive thinking, and science fiction, which she said was "history, pre-written."


“Let your soul catch fire!” – Edna Lister


Her literary output included four books and several pamphlets and treatises, yet her major achievement is found in the many thousands of pages of sermon and lecture outlines she created for teaching and preaching. The ultimate testimony to the greatness of her vision and work is that it has caused the souls of four generations to catch fire.
