(Top Christian Books on Revival)
1) The Great Awakening: A Brief History with Documents
A detailed examination of the First Great Awakening, this volume presents a valuable study of the spiritual movement that profoundly shaped colonial American cultural and religious life.
Thomas Kidd’s comprehensive introduction relies on recent scholarship to describe three contemporary views of the revivals: those of radicals in favor of them, moderates supporting them, and antirevivalists attacking them. The views and experiences of these participants and critics emerge through nearly 40 documents organized into topical sections.
2) Why Revival Tarries
This is a no-compromise call to biblical revival and spiritual excellence that expounds on the disparity between today’s church and the church of Acts.
3) Praying Together for True Revival (Jonathan Edwards for Today’s Reader)
Makes accessible Edwards’ call for Christians internationally to unite in prayer “for those great effusions of the Holy Spirit” that shall advance Christ’s kingdom.
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.
5) Rut, Rot, or Revival: The Problem of Change and Breaking Out of the Status Quo
“If the messages in this book were read and acted upon by every pastor and church member, we would have the revival for which Dr. Tozer fervently prayed, and for which many of us are praying today.” — Warren Wiersbe
“The church should be a healthy, fruitful vineyard that will bring honor to Christ,” says A. W. Tozer. But to do so, we as individuals must stop accepting the status quo and get out of our spiritual ruts.
6) A God-Sized Vision: Revival Stories that Stretch and Stir
List Price: $16.99Price Disclaimer
Is it possible we don’t see God working in mighty ways because we don’t ask him to work in mighty ways? Throughout history, God has used revival to build and renew his church.
God-Sized Vision challenges us to pray expectantly to see his work in our own day. God can bring revival again to our community, our country, and our world. Our faith grows stronger when we learn how God worked in the past.
7) Revival Praying: An Urgent and Powerful Message for the Family of Christ
Leonard Ravenhill presents prayer as faith in action in this fast-paced presentation of this crucial subject. He called prayer the most essential ingredient in producing revival.
Filled with exhortations and illustrations, it teaches the art of effective praying–which will result in revival. Moody Monthly said, “This is a plea for praying that will melt the preacher’s heart, move the people, and magnify the Lord Jesus.”
8) Revival and Revivalism
Marrying careful historical research to popular and relevant presentation, Revival and Revivalism traces the spiritually epoch-making events of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through the eyes of those who lived at their centre.
Fundamental to the book’s thesis is a rejection of the frequent identification of ‘revival’ with ‘revivalism’. The author demonstrates that a common understanding of the New Testament idea of revival was prevalent in most denominations throughout the period 1750-1858. Revivalism, on the other hand, is different both in its origin and in its tendencies.
