2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 13 May 2003
Format: Paperback
This fascinating book was originally published in 1959 by British evangelist Leonard Ravenhill (1907-1994). In it, Rev. Ravenhill launches a fiery attack on the complacency and drowsiness of the modern Protestant Church. He calls for prayer, fervent and unceasing prayer.
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!

a burning message from a burning heart! 30 Mar. 1999
By DBO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read many christian books in the past, but this stands out. Bro Leonard did not beat about the bush. The chapters are short enough to be read in about fifteen minutes, but they are so packed that each may take you two solid hours to read. Every chapter is thought-provoking. Since I got the book in 1984, I have read it more than 30 times! And each time, it appears as if I never read it before. If you would read this book, be ready to end up upon your knees!

A bolt from the blue to the heart of a complacent Church 21 Nov. 2002
By Daniel L Edelen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"A man ablaze."
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.

One of the most convicting books I have ever read. 6 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My husband was given a copy of "Why Revival Tarries" and "Revival Praying" when he joined a men's Bible Institute several years ago at a Baptist Church that we were in at that time. My husband read the book and would read certain passages out loud to me and I couldn't wait to read the books myself. We both have the books well underlined in several places and I have purchased the book since then for several people. A few years before we read these two books, I was listening to a Christian radio station on my way to a friends house. The preacher I heard on the radio was so powerful, that I literally had to pull over to the side of the road. The preacher was Leonard Ravenhill. He was preaching on America and television, etc. and he was so right about what he said about Christianity today. I beleive this is a life changing book and should be read by every Christan. Each time I reread the book, I am convicted again and long to be the Christian he speaks about and would love to see that kind of revival take place in our churces. You will never be the same once you have read what this tremendous man of God has said.

"A revival of religon presupposes a declension." 23 Aug. 2001
By Rocco B. Rubino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So wrote Charles Grandison Finney in his book "Lectures on Revival."
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?
