Summary

Pastor Jim Cymbala believes that Jesus wants to renew his people, to call us back from spiritual dead ends, apathy, and lukewarm religion.

Cymbala knows the difference firsthand. Twenty-five years ago, his own church, the Brooklyn Tabernacle, was a struggling congregation of twenty. Then they began to pray...God began to move...street-hardened lives by the hundreds were changed by the love of Christ...and today they are six thousand strong.

The story of what happened to this broken-down church in one of America's meanest neighborhoods points the way to new spiritual vitality in the church and in your own life. Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire shows what the Holy Spirit can do when believers get serious about prayer and the Gospel. As this compelling audiobook reveals, God moves in life-changing ways when we set aside our own agendas, take him at his word, and listen for his voice.

Spirit Revived

Ever since I read this book then later got this audio version, it's been such a blessing! Each time I need a revival of my heart, I play it again and again. The rendition is great with the lovely musical interludes. I highly recommend it for every child of God. My spirit is revived!

Inspiring book

We read together as a church for our month of prayer. Really raised our expectation and passion for the Lord and our desire to cry out to him.

Simple. Straightforward. Cymbala at his best.

The narrator is excellent. He is animated and engaging.

The writing is open, honest and thought-provoking. I had already read the book. Listening was just as rewarding. Jim Cymbala freely admits that the "success" (as we would see it) of The Brooklyn Tabernacle is all due to their submission, listening to and obeying the Holy Spirit. A recommended listen.

An answer to prayer

Litterally. I have been longing for a deeper, more real connection with God through prayer than I've been experiencing for a long time. This audiobook has revived and inspired me. After listening to it, I am left with the same feeling I got from "In His Steps". I have new hope that real change is possible in my life and in my church and my city. A must read for anyone who truly desires to know God better and fulfil His will for your life.

GREAT book. Well worth the investment.

I will keep this book to listen to again and again. I've already recommended the book to a number of friends. As the Executive Director of a pregnancy resource center that is struggling because of the economy, I found this book encouraging and inspirational, I learned a lot from Pastor Cymbala which I have and will continue to incorporate into my daily life. Prayer has always been key to me, but has now taken on a whole new dimension. If you need something "fresh" in your life this is the book to choose. I will be listening to this one for a long time. Good investment.

Exciting

I read this book several years ago and decided to buy the audio version to listen to. It started a new fire in me about the committment we all need in regards to prayer.I was so excited I purchased 30 hard copys and gave them away in our church. We are having Concerts of Prayer on a regular basis. Don't miss the opportunity to buy this audio book...it is awesome!

Amazing Book

Pastor Cymbala, i loved your book and the profound yet simplistic message that you bring. My prayer life has defenetly been impacted for the better. I now understand more of where my Pastor gets his zeal in telling us the importantce of prayer. He keeps repeating to our congregation that the most important service we have is on Tuesday nights at prayer service. We have experience The Holy Spirits Manifest Power and we (at least I know I do!) want more of it. I awake each morning to the reading of His Word and Jesus comes to life each morning to me with a new blessing each morning, He is so addictive that I cannot get enough of Him. My life has changed dramatically through the Power of Prayer and Believing without a dought the the God of the Universe hears my cry everytime. Thank you Pastor Cymbala for your faithfulness and to your wife Carol for her steadfast Love for you, your children and that Powerful Army of Praying Warriors called Thr Brooklyn Tabernacle. My sincerest Salutations to all of you from myself, my beautiful wife Marleni, my three beautiful children Marisol 22, Andres 33, Johanna 35 and my Awesone three grandbabies. Jordan 1, Sophia Isabella 5, and Joseph Andrew 8. Oh yeah i almost forgot much love from my beautiful pastoral family Joey and Missy Vasquez and The Deep Waters Tabernacle in Ijamsville, Md. Love you all dearly.

God is soo cool

What made the experience of listening to Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire the most enjoyable?

I loved this real-life story of imperfection and brokenness... and how God continued (and still continues) to step in when there is no hope. God used this book to awaken in me a desperation for Him and provide an expectancy in me of what can happen when we are desperate enough to cry out to Him for help.
