Wonderful book. But warning! If you don't want change, don't read because God will use this book to change your life! But definitely for the better, for now and eternity! Just think about when Mr. Ravenhill wrote this book and substitute the word "Islam" or "Muslim" every time you see "Communism" and you will find that it is very relevant and up-to-date. Even more so than then!
This book, if you allow it to convict you and soften your heart, will change your life. If you have a true thirst for revival, Ravenhill will be a kindred brother to you. If you want to read accounts of revival, see also the John Weir book - the Ulster Awakening.
The book by Leonard Ravenhill - Why Revival Tarries is a book that its a must read for every believers, pastors, evangelist, soul-winners and every other Godly fearing person who have deep passion for souls.The book is to give the evangelist knowlegde to have a deep passion for lost souls, making the churches a fire brand and not cold.Above All, i recommend it for every one who wants to wear crowns on that day of glory.
My prayer life slowly dwindling into obscurity, regulated to 5 minute sessions here and there, I knew I had to do something to revive my prayer life. I searched various authors and decided to give this one a chance. Thank you God! Within 15 minutes, I was on my knees pleading with God to forgive me for my self-centeredness, my wife wondering what was wrong with me. If it doesn't do the same for you, you are either an Elijah in prayer or your heart is calloused. Either way, you still need to be pray. Very brief yet potent! The author truly has a gift writing physiologically. Thank you, Mr. Ravenhill. My hope is that this work will not return to you void.
a simply outstanding read, clearly a life changing read, a classic amidst a time when we have taken the word of God and complicated the simple call of God with religion, omitting the simple call to prayer in the secret place and to wait upon the Lord for revival. All Christian leaders and ministers MUST read this book.
