Revival


CALL DOWN LIGHTNING

What the Welsh Revival of 1904 Reveals About the End Times

By Wallace Henley

The Welsh Revival of 1904 was a revival with great important. It completely changes an area that no one thought would change, but God proved differently. In this book Wallace Henley shares a large amount of the history that surrounded the revival. He gives a lot of facts about Evan Roberts, who had a lot to do with the revival. Henley gives facts about the Welsh community and the need for a revival and what took place and made changes to the local life style in only a few months. Why study the Welsh Revival, because it will help us gain hope and be prepared for the lighting when God calls for the next revival.

Henley believes that the world will have another revival simpler to the Welsh Revival before the end of time. He gives a list of things that a revival does;

Revival would pay off old debts, it would reduce sexual immorality, I would disinfect the theater and the press, it would cut the divorce rate, it would reduce juvenile crime, it would lessen the prison population, it would improve and increase the output of work, it would restore to the nation a sense of high destiny. It would make us invincible in any war of ideas, and it would give happiness and peace to the people.

The book is easy reading and easy to understand, would make a good book for Bible study and discussion groups.

A novel




WHAT IF IT’S TRUE?

A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus

By Charles Martin

The author makes this statement in the introduction of the book: “Admittedly, some of the things I’m writing about require a little imagination, I’m taking license with stuff we just can’t know and can’t prove.” What he has done is take facts from Bible stories and add his own details to the people and background, many books and movies do this. Most of the things he has added to describe the people and scenes are not fact. If you are looking for a novel to read that is based on Bible facts, with a lot of extra details that are not based on facts, you may like this book. The author offers his opinion and tells how they have helped him. He explains that he was searching for truths about the Bible. The book is easy to read and understand and a good novel.

I did not like many of the details, too much license, that were added to some of the stories because, in my opinion, they took away from the stories.

Pathways


PATHWAYS

From Providence to Purpose

By Tony Evans

This book is able God’s sovereignty and providence, Tony describes them as;

God’s sovereignty is what He wants to happen.

God’s providence is where He sets things up and connects them so that His sovereignty does happen.

The book is about God guiding humanity along pathways, intersecting us to the final place He wants us. Tony shares stories of how this has happened many times. One of the main examples is the book of Esther. He shows just how God used her and others to protect His people from harm. The story contains a lot of background information about those involved. Tony shows that God has a plan and can use different methods of connecting people to bring that plan together. The book show that God can use people for a particular purpose and things that appear to be coincidences are not.

In appendix A of the book is a list of scripture verse on sovereignty

The book is well written, and the enhancements adds to the story of Esther. (If you are not familiar with the book of Esther, I recommend reading it before reading this book for complete understanding of the story.) The book can be by discussion group and Bible study groups.

A quote from the back of the book;

“Every action or event that occurs within it has been to make that purpose a reality.”
