Summary

This is an updated edition of a book written by Missionary and evangelist Roy Hession in 1950 in which he profiles the nature of religious revival and lays out the prerequisites and consequences of the activity of God in the heart of the hungry seeker.

Roy Hession (1908-1992) was a British evangelist and author. Hession was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Aldenham School where his introduction to religion led him to expect "anything but boredom" from God. He was very much influenced by their strong emphasis on a personal implementation of the basics of the Christian faith, in particular the healing powers of openness and repentance. His preaching subsequently incorporated these new insights. This brought criticism because of its introspective element, from some he had previously worked with, but it was much appreciated by many Christians on both sides of the Atlantic.

Roy Hession died in 1992 but he is remembered for his infectious enthusiasm and his humor, but above all for his unwavering stand on the principles of repentance and grace that had become so precious to him.

Highly recommended

Excellent book and easy to listen to, very well narrated. The book is in short chapters which is good for mulling over after each one. The book ends with three brief interviews with the author who underlines the simple yet vital biblical truths in his book. This book will be highly valued by anyone wanting a deeper daily experience of walking with Jesus Christ.

Valued Instruction for Personal Revival

Even though the author's instruction is deeply colored through the filter of his personal experience, he's still right about the basic components and steps of revival. It's very useful in that this book is almost laid out like a service manual for your spirit. as there are new new models of spirits but those but God creates man with, the manual is still valid today and it remains timeless.

Simple and timeless truths

I was recommended this book during some difficult times in life. Times of wondering who I am and also a great amount of dissatisfaction in the direction of my life and with the direction of the church. I would recommend this book to anyone, not just people in that same boat that I was. It's a powerful return to the simplicity of the daily activity of Jesus in our life.

TIMELESS

My third time reading since 1995 and probably NOT my last time to get corrientes it. A great prep for true personal revival. Very simple, convicting, revealing and straight forward. God is present in these pages so get ready to repent in areas where HE sheds light and calls sin- sin.

Excellent

Must listen to book.
Roy deals so well with the issue of being filled with the Holy Spirit and avoids all the whacky stuff out there.
