Revival happens when passion for God breaks through human restraint and ignites one heart after another with his unquenchable love. Speaking with enthusiasm and vibrancy, Kim Meeder encourages readers to seek transformation of heart, soul, mind, and strength by engaging the holy fire of God’s presence. Within this place, fear and pride melt away and the desire burns brightly to reach all who are losing the battle for hope. Through inspiring true encounters, Meeder challenges each believer to accept Jesus’s commission to carry the living flame of his love wherever he leads.
Does America still trust God and his word today? Or have we fallen so far away that his judgment is almost certain-and soon? If we want to know the Lord’s heart for America, the best place to start is by looking at his heart for Israel. His relationship with them centered on three questions: 1. Do they respect God’s truth? 2. Do they respect each other? 3. Do they respect God? To apply these questions to America, Dr. Jim Denison and his son, Ryan Denison, take an in-depth look at the most challenging issues of our day. From sexuality to abortion and suicide, from postmodernity and relative truth to our doubts about God-every major issue America faces today is no surprise to God. In fact, what if God is using this time and these issues to help us turn back to him? And what if he’s using you to launch America’s next Great Awakening?
Author: Dr. Jim Denison, Ryan Denison
First-year student Asa Rush isn’t surprised that he’s one of a handful of Christians on campus. After all, he’s been recruited by President Timothy Dwight to help bring revival to the school. Once a bastion of faith, Yale is now a hotbed of atheism, following on the tails of the popular French revolution.
But fellow student Eli Cooper is determined to make Asa’s life miserable — especially when both men fall in love with the sensuous, wealthy, and mysterious Annabelle Byrd. Just when Asa thinks things can’t get worse, Dr. Dwight charges Asa with a shocking commission that shakes him to the core.
As America, barely two decades old, faces its first divisive presidential election, voters arm themselves in anticipation of the outcome. Asa and Eli are caught in the eye of the storm. Is the battle political or spiritual? Will the nation choose revolution or revival? And when the winds subside, who will be left standing?
Inspired by actual revival events, this third book in a series of four explores the personal and spiritual upheaval that occurs when the Holy Spirit stirs the waters of our souls.

Every church is driven by something. Tradition, programs, finances, personalities, events, seekers and even buildings can each be the controlling force in a church. But Rick Warren believes that in order for a church to be healthy it must become a purpose driven church, built around the five New Testament purposes given to the church by Jesus.
“Vance Havner used the Word of God like a sword. You pick any one of his books and you could sense the presence and power of the Holy Spirit leaping off those pages.” —Billy Graham
Licensed to preach at the age of twelve and ordained at fifteen, Havner spent a lifetime calling people to repentance. A popular revivalist known for his homespun storytelling and memorable wordplay, Havner boldly proclaimed the Word of God for seventy-three years.
The author of more than thirty books, Havner’s sermons are favorites among pastors who find his style refreshing, his quotes memorable, and his message convincing. In this collection of ten revival sermons, Havner’s hard-hitting words proclaim the biblical message of heaven, hell, sin, repentance, sacrifice, holiness, prayer, and the lordship of Christ—themes that resonate with as much relevance today as when Havner first preached them.
