Revival

In every era the church needs revival--certainly today as much as ever. And in the heart of every committed Christian there is the longing for personal revival--to know the quality and depths of spiritual reality, and the presence of God in one's personal life.

This was the deepest desire of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, one of the great 20th-century Bible expositors. It was also the purpose behind this series of messages which were first given on the 100th anniversary of the Great Revival which started in Wales, and swept across England and throughout the United States and to the far corners of the world. As Dr. Lloyd-Jones recognized, it is a rare time in the history of the church when there is a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit-- and a time of special interest of every Christian who longs for revival today.

As Dr. J. I. Packer writes in his foreword, Dr. Lloyd-Jones believed in "the necessity of revival--that is, a quickening divine visitation--as the only vent that can avert ultimate spiritual disaster. The thrustful urgency of the sermons in this book testifies to the depth of his conviction that without revival in the church there is really no hope for the Western world at all."

Dr. Lloyd-Jones deftly draws principles from the lives of Old and New Testament characters as well as expounding some of the great prayers of the Bible. Clearly and forcefully, he presents a masterful exposition of the circumstances accompanying revival in the past, why each generation needs it, and how it will come about today. We must come to the sovereign God, forsake our sin, and wait upon Him for this special, essential outpouring. God, bring us revival!

"I do not think that our age has seen any more powerful or profound treatment of revival than this book." --Dr. J. I. Packer

Great book, but it quit flowing text after the new Google Play Books app for iPad came out. It was working before. The Google page says "No e-book Available" at one site but I purchased one! Next I called Google about it and I was told it says it does not have flowing text. If there is no e-book available ... why would it say that? Somethings not right. I believe it did have flowing text at first. I just checked again an the Google page says epub is available for it which is flowing text!!!! What gives????
