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..."
In our 20s we make the most significant and formative decisions of our entire lives. We decide what career to choose and whom to marry, how we will spend our money, where we will live, what type of people we will surround ourselves with, and generally what will be the guiding force(s) of our lives. Ironically, these choices are made at a time when the most wisdom is needed but the least is possessed. As a 30-year-old Christian who has sought God's leading in making many of the above decisions, Colin Creel sets out to share both what he's learned as well as the advice of some older, wiser men and women who can look back with discernment of the life-molding decisions all twentysomethings face. By addressing such topics as romance, work, friendship, character development, and spiritual formation, this devotional book offers life-changing daily tidbits of wisdom for the searching Christian twentysomething.
Revival is the heart's cry of those truly consecrated to God. Then why has revival become a catch phrase that is talked about more than it's witnessed in the Christian experience? Why Revival Still Tarries reveals that the Church is actually responsible for revival's standstill. Refusing to take up the Cross thwarts the Holy Spirit from doing what is necessary to work His will through us. Do you want to join the front lines of a new generation of prophetic evangelism? Then discover how dying-to-self is what ushers in an anointing that makes the unbeliever take notice of God's glory.

The end times are upon us and since God is more concerned about redemption than judgment He is calling all people, especially the church, to return to Him in 'first love.' We have been given a commandment to love God with all of our mind, soul, will, and strength, and to love others as we love ourselves. Unfortunately, such love is lacking. Many are crying out for revival, but unless there is a turning back to God with sincere repentance, there will be no substance for the fires of revival to be ignited during these end times. God's love, as does all love, demands a response and He is waiting for your response. When love is returned wholeheartedly, who knows if God will rend the heavens and come down in power, thus ushering in a revival that will blaze through our churches and nations bringing the much needed healing to our lands.
