Why Revival Tarries
by Leonard Ravenhill
Publisher:Bethany House imprint of Baker Pub from Lion
This is a book from a bygone age. It is written in a direct, uncompromising style similar to A W Tozer. You will either love it or hate it.
Leonard Ravenhill was a powerful evangelical preacher of the 20th century who longed to see real revival. This book was written to show some of the reasons he believed God did not send revival. The chapter titles give a clue to the nature of this book: A call for unction in the pulpit; Revival in a bone yard; Wanted preachers for a day of doom.
I could not agree with everything written. I would also have liked some emphasis on the need to go out into the world with the Gospel. But overall this book strikes at the heart: you will not be able to read it in an academic detached way.
