In this latest volume, Holy Desperation, Hester has compiled sermons that Vance Havner originally preached at the Columbia Bible College and the Ben Lippen Preaching Conferences of Columbia, South Carolina.
In many ways, this North Carolina native was just a simple, country preacher. But Vance Havner (who passed away in 1986) preached and spoke with a practicality and a profundity that is as relevant today as when these messages were first delivered.
Billy Graham said of Havner's writings, "Pick any one of his books and you can sense the presence and power of the Holy Spirit leaping off those pages." Readers will find that to be true in Dennis Hester's latest compilation of Vance Havner's sermons.
The book is subtitled, "How to Find God When You Need Him Most." And for those of you who have realized your deep and desperate need of God, I strongly encourage you to read this collection of Vance Havner's sermons. But don't just read it; meditate on it, savor it, and be blessed by it. I know I have!

Dennis Hester has done a wonderful job compiling 10 sermons of the late Vance Havner. Hester, who has written four previous books on Havner, has become quite an authority on Havner, having known him personally and having interviewed him in 1982 (the interview and biographical sketch of Havner’s 72 years of ministry are included in the appendices).
This is a joyful little book that will particularly inspire and challenge preachers and teachers of the Word. I highly recommend it!
