Pentecost-Today is a timely, well researched book addressing the topic of Revival. A tenacious commitment to the authority of scripture is evident from the opening pages and historical insights concerning revival abound. Chapters addressing the theology of Charles Finney and Divine sovereignty are wonderful. But the author's treatment of fanaticism and the appendix on regeneration makes this volume a necessary reading resource.With all of the clamor about revival today this book rings loud and clear.Other worthwhile titles by the same author include; Revival & Revivalism and The Invitation System.

Brilliant and easy to read and most informative on an exceedingly important subject that all thinking Christians should read to keep them on safe PATHS regarding the theology of true biblical revival. One warning. Do not read it too quickly and pray over the need of Revival in the Church in 2016.

HASH(0x8e659c84) out of 5 stars Reformed Preachers: Tolle Lege, Tolle Lege 2 Sept. 2005
By K. Darrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Do you ever wonder where the power in the pulpit is? Have you read about the Great Awakening and the preaching of Whitefield, Wesley, Edwards, and many others and think, Where is that today? Why is it missing? This book, I believe, can help you discover why.

In one sense, the answer is disappointing. Murray, writing as a Calvinist, is convinced that there is nothing that you can do to create this, and, as a Calvinist, I absolutely agree. In another sense, however, Murray says we have every Biblical reason to petition the Lord, "work for it", and expect him to answer our prayers to fill us with the Spirit, so awakening, revival, and true power from the pulpit will be manifested.

The first chapter, which outlines the three traditional views of revival--"once and for all", "conditional", "old school--is essential reading. In short the different schools say three different things. The first says, the filling of the Spirit occured at Pentecost and we should not expect more today. It was a once and for all thing. The second view, conditional, says we must meet certain requirments ('clean hands & a pure heart'), then the Lord will send revival. The third view, which Murray promotes and I agree with, says that it is some sort of mixture of the two. Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of God the Father and "increases" experience and "increases" the "fulness" of the Holy Spirit. This view, I believe, is the most Biblical because in considers the work of Christ and the Holy Spirit from the Cross to Pentecost, recognizing the fulness of what God has done there, but recognizes that there is always an increase to be had in any relationship. The first view, I believe, minimizes this relational aspect, just as the second minimizes the legal or definitive aspect of the Lord's work.

The chapter on "Preaching and the Holy Spirit" is another must read. We need Reformed preachers that are filled with the Holy Spirit and love, and this chapter will provide plenty of historical precedent for "Calvinists" to be "filled with the Spirit" and completely loving towards their neighbors and in their sermons. God isn't grouchy, looking to strike us down.

Much more could be said, but in a brief Amazon review, I hope that whets your appetite to purchase this book.

HASH(0x8e678894) out of 5 stars Biblical Analysis of Revival 15 Jun. 2004
By Seeking Disciple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In our day and age I hear believers crying out for revival. Often we hear of the revivals of Charles Finney and D.L. Moody but do the theology of revivals is often ignored or not discerned.
Iain Murray has written this book to look at the later half of the 19th century and the beginnings of the 20th century concerning revival. Much of the modern cry for revival comes from this time period and yet sadly so does much of the theology. Charles Finney, as you will read, is the father of modern pragmatic theology and his followers such as Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and other church growth "experts" fall into his theology and life. "If it works, if it brings results then do it" would be Finney's motto. And that is where the modern evangelical church is today. Ignore sound doctrine (1 Timothy 4:16; Titus 2:1) and give them what they want to hear (2 Timothy 4:3,4).
This should be required reading for all pastors and teachers of God's Word and may God send us a genuine revival that is full of His Word and His glory and not the traditions and teachings of men (Mark 7:1-13).

HASH(0x8ee847f8) out of 5 stars Why we do not have revival today... 26 Nov. 2006
By Jerry Teets - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A wonderful compliment to his other book "Revival and Revivalism: The Making and Marring of American Evangelicalism." Brother Murray covers what is meant and understood about Revival through three views; Once for All, Conditional, and Old School. Then he expands and explains the effect each view has on what is understood about Revival and the work of the Holy Spirit during such times of special outpouring. But the chapter I enjoyed the most was Chapter 6, Hindering Revival: Evangelical Fanaticism. Many of the problems in Evangelicalism stems from Fanaticism...trying to work up a Holy Spirit revival. God does His work by His Spirit in His time and in His own way. We can hinder God's work and stop a revival when we give a greater place to experience than to curb our emotions and submit to God and His word.

HASH(0x8f52b284) out of 5 stars Preliminary Remarks 9 Dec. 2009
By Robert Iannuccilli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Just received my copy of this book and after reading the very first chapter, I rose to write this brief and preliminary opinion. As a Pastor and individual hungry for the things of God, I am always interested in sound and solid works on the Holy Spirit. I am confident that those with the same passion and interest will appreciate this fine book. After reading just 31 pages (The First Chapter), I have found that my money has been well spent. Murray does a terrific job in breaking down the approaches to "revival" into three camps: 1) Those that believe that all we were intended to receive has once and for all been given 2) Those who insist that if we but meet the prescribed conditions for revival, God would do the very things we long to witness and be a part of, and 3) Those who recognize that God, irrespective of human effort, by His sovereignty and wisdom, at certain times and occasions augments His activity amongst His own and in the world. Murray seems to feel that there is something to be learned from each emphases. I have gleaned much already from his introductory thoughts.
I purchase lots of Christian books ( I have in excess of 5,000) and find that many times, after reading volumes in their entirety, I have wasted my money. Not so here. More to follow.... My break is over... back to the book.
