Product Description

How different is the church of today compared to its New Testament counterpart? Offering a non-compromising call to the principles of biblical revival, Ravenhill's message is drastic, fearless, and often radical. Emphasizing prayer and passion over comfort and intellectualism, he reveals why pastors and laypeople have traded powerful truth for weak words. Includes study questions. 172 pages, softcover from Bethany.

Publisher's Description

Leonard Ravenhill's call to revival is as timely now as it was when &supl;rst published over forty years ago. The message is fearless and often radical as he expounds on the disparity between the New Testament church and the church today. Why Revival Tarries contains the heart of his message. A.W. Tozer called Ravenhill "a man sent from God" who "appeared at [a] critical moment in history," just as the Old Testament prophets did. Included are questions for group and individual study. Ravi Zacharias refers to this as "the book that shaped me...more dramatically than any other..."

    Cried my way through the whole book. Not an easy read. It cuts deep and address some hard issues with the state of the church and our faith. Found myself compelled to pray every time I read this book as God highlighted the complacency and apathy in my own heart.

    "One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed. We have adopted the convenient theory that the Bible is a Book to be explained, whereas first and foremost it is a Book to be believed (and after that to be obeyed)."

    Sometimes there are things you wished the speaker would have included in his message: but the reverse is true here. He spoke the truth concerning pastors and Christians in general. He said things we needed to hear not what we wanted to hear. God used him to blister my hide and as one preacher put it many years ago... if that doesn't set your heart on fire, your wood is wet.

    Sometimes you need an author that will jolt you out of your spiritual lethargy. Leonard Ravenhill will never fail you at such a time. I'm thinking now of 2 of my favorite Ravenhill titles: "Why Revival Tarries" and "Sodom Had No Bible".

    In "Why Revival Tarries" there are 20 chapters with a page of fantastic quotes at the beginning of each chapter. Imagine being a preacher as I am and being hit with:

    "One does not need to be spiritual to preach, that is, to make and deliver sermons of homiletical perfection and exegetical exactitude...Preaching of the type mentioned affects men: prayer affects God. Preaching affects time; prayer affects eternity."

    That is paragraph two of chapter one--See what I mean! Or how about this:

    "No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying."

    Yes he is eminently quotable, likes a rhyme, yet is never corny. I could provide many other great quotes, but I am far too slow a typist to reproduce the entire book here. The answer to the question of why revival tarries has much, I came to see, to do with me.
