Book Quotations

Why Revival TarriesIn a previous post, which you can read here, I recommended some books. On that list was the book entitled “Why Revival Tarries” by Leonard Ravenhill. In case you have been unable to familiarize yourself with this good book, I wanted to share some quotations from it below:

  1. “There is a world of difference between knowing the Word of God and knowing the God of the Word.” (This coincides well with some thoughts conveyed in our Tuesday evening Bible Study.)
  2. “We appease sin, but do not oppose it.”
  3. “The people who are not praying are straying.”
  4. “Poverty-stricken as the Church is today in many things, she is most stricken here, in the place of prayer.”
  5. “A sinning man will stop praying, and a praying man will stop sinning.”
  6. “Prayer is profoundly simple and simply profound.”
  7. “The brutal, soul-shaking truth is that we are so earthly minded we are of no heavenly use.”
  8. “Because the church has lost Holy Ghost fire, men go to hell-fire!”
  9. “We know Elijah was a man of like passions as we are, but alas! we are not men of prayer as he was!”
  10. “Notice, we never pray for folks we gossip about, and we never gossip about folk for whom we pray!”

While there are plenty more quotes that are worthy of sharing, I will withhold for the time being. This is a mere sampling of the rich contents found in the pages of this soul-stirring book.
