This book is not for those who like their Christianity academic and dispassionate. Rev. Ravenhill blazes through this book like the fire-and-brimstone preachers of yesteryear, calling for "hell-shaking prayer." This is a book sure to afflict the comfortable; buy it!

There is no other way to describe Leonard Ravenhill. And as the man is, so are his writings. If you can read this book and not be driven to your knees, even as you rend your clothing, then buddy you're dead already!
A condensation of "Why Revival Tarries" into a few words would yield the truth that it's Man's fault alone. You see, God wants to pour out revival, to set all of us ablaze with the fire of His Spirit, but we are so oblivious to the truth that our hearts are totally turned away from Him that we cannot begin to acquire what He is so richly wanting to shower us with.
It starts with repentence - and not your mamby-pamby, watered-down 21st century style repentence, but the kind that tears a man or woman down to the soul, only to allow God to rebuild and reshape. Ravenhill argues that this is not something that happens overnight. If the Church wants revival, it's going to come with a cost. He proceeds to layout a compelling vision of that cost and the crucibles needed to hold what God will pour out.
No Christian library is complete without the works of Leonard Ravenhill, and the best place to start is with "Why Revival Tarries". Get it today and be prepared for the glory that will come.
Seeing that there was indeed a "declension" in what the New Testament Church should be, Leonard Ravenhill wrote this jeremiad over 40 years ago, yet his observations and his call to repentance remain ever so true today.
From unctionless preachers, to self-satisfied, pew-warming church members, Ravenhill spares no one has his words cut like a flaming sword at the rampant sin that is in the church today.
No one with even a modicum of spiritual understanding can read this book and not be committed to repenting, and making a decision to serve Christ Jesus more fervently.
Doesn't He deserve our best?
