Why Revival Tarries, by Leonard Ravenhill
Leonard Ravenhill was born in 1907 in England. He became of one England's foremost evangelists, preaching with vigor and power. He emigrated with his family to the United States in midlife, where he continued his ministry. He was the author of several books, including Revival God's Way and Revival Praying.
Leonard Ravenhill's call to revival is as timely now as it was when first 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.
This book is a chronicle of what the local newspapers reported during the 1859 Revival in Ireland. Here you will read eye-witness accounts of the era, which provide the reader with vivid and detailed accounts of the mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit which brought times of spiritual refreshment in Ireland.
You will read reports of how the great movement resulted in extended prayer gatherings, spontaneous praise meetings, powerful and anointed preaching of God's word which was followed by deep conviction of sin and the conversion of whole families. The observers of this supernatural and sovereign outpouring of God by His Spirit relate how much the revival impacted on the moral and spiritual condition of that time, and how churches which previously had been depleted in numbers were suddenly brimming with worshippers and sinners seeking salvation. A fascinating account of a Revival by those who witnessed the events first hand.
"The revival during 1859 was a remarkable time of spiritual blessing among the people of Ireland, when many thousands came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. The impact was so noticeable that the newspapers began to write in detail , bringing up-to-date news concerning services and how the Lord was working. During the year, many column inches were taken up with news from all across the country. Newspaper editors frequently commented that they could bring only a selection of the news that they received concerning the revival...Surely as we read these accounts of the work of God, our hearts will be stirred up to pray and long for a similar move of the Spirit of God in our own lives and in the lives of all around us" (from the Introduction, by Samuel Adams).
"To read this journal of the 1859 Revival has been both thrilling to my heart and stirring to my soul" - Victor Maxwell
