Reviews - What do our customers think?
Why we do not have revival today...  Nov 26, 2006
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.
Reformed Preachers: Tolle Lege, Tolle Lege  Sep 2, 2005
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 this site review, I hope that whets your appetite to purchase this book.
Biblical Analysis of Revival  Jun 15, 2004
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).

Interested in true revival? THEN READ THIS!  Jun 4, 1999
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.
