Item Description...
What is a revival? What obstacles stand in the way of such a work? Are revivals a work of God or of man? What means can be lawfully used to produce and promote a revival? How are awakened sinners and young converts to be treated and cared for? What peculiar evils are to be guarded against in times of revival? What are the results of revivals? Lectures on Revival answers such questions as these in an exceptionally fine manner. Dr Sprague's treatment of the subject is scriptural, theological and balanced. Sprague's experience of genuine revivals, his faithfulness to biblical theology, and his balanced view, eminently fitted him to write what Dr Lloyd-Jones described as 'The outstanding classic on this vital and urgently important matter.' The chapters cover such important themes as The Nature of Revival, Obstacles to Revivals, Divine Agency in Revivals, General Means of Producing and Promoting Revivals, Treatment Due to Awakened Sinners, Evils to be Avoided in connection with Revivals. There is also a large and excellent Appendix comprising letters on revivals by various North American evangelical leaders of the nineteenth century. A special and unique feature of this new edition is the biographical sketch of each correspondent, kindly supplied by Dr James M. Garretson. The original Banner reprint, from which the text of this new edition was drawn, was reproduced from the personal copy of Charles Simeon of Cambridge, who warmly commended the volume to his Executor by recording on its flyleaf the words: 'A most valuable book . . . I love the good sense of Dr Sprague.' William Sprague (1795-1876), an eminent Presbyterian minister, was born in Andover in 1795. He went to Yale College in 1811 and graduated with honours in 1815. The following year he entered Princeton Seminary where he studied for more than two years, after which he gained experience in two pastorates lasting one year and ten years respectively. Subsequent to this he moved to Albany where he remained for forty years. A fully committed pastor and preacher, he was also a prodigious author. Besides producing a number of biographies and other volumes, more than 150 of his sermons were to appear in print. Other than his Lectures on Revival perhaps his best known work is his Annals of the American Pulpit. As a personality he has been described as an 'illustrious man; a cultivated elegant, a voluminous, useful, and popular preacher; an indefatigable and successful pastor; an unselfish and de

Reviews - What do our customers think?
THE classic on revival  Feb 20, 2010
There are a number of excellent books on the subject of revival including "Revival" (by Lloyd-Jones), "Pentecost-Today?" (by Iain Murray) and "Revival and Revivalism" (also by Murray). Yet, of the books I have read on the subject none is more important than this one. This is a deeply practical book, which is both refreshingly honest and solidly grounded in truth. There are number of important points and lessons contained in this book that have been forgotten by the Church. Two, in particular, stand out. First, the need for reproof. Pastors and Christians must not shy away from their duty toward fellow believers who living in sin and drifting in apathy. Second, the importance of reverence. Here is a concept almost foreign to the Evangelical churches, and yet without it can we expect the revival we seek? I doubt it. This book is a must read.
Lectures on Revival  Oct 10, 2007
A much needed volume in our day, when true religion is at a low. What we need in our day is revival. A return to preaching that searches the heart, convicts of sin, and focuses on the need for regeneration (a Spirit-wrought blessing). The letters alone are worth the price of the book, with many who were leaders in revivals of by-gone days. The likes of Archibald Alexander, Heman Humphries, Samuel Miller, Edward Payson, Ashbel Green, Edward Griffin, just to name a few. The Lectures themselves are "GOLD". Nature and Defense of Revivals gives us a Biblical view of what Revival is. Obstacles and Divine Agency in Revivals shows us the things to be avoided as well as the Author of revival. Treatment Due to Awakened Sinners will give counsel of how to treat those under awakening. Means of Producing and Promoting Revival is great counsel(NOT as Finney prescribed). Foreward by Lloyd Jones. A GEM of a book, get it read it, re-read it.
