Summary

Leonard Ravenhill's call to revival is as timely now as it was when it was published over 50 years ago. The message is fearless and often radical as he expounds on the disparity between the New Testament church and the church today. Why Revival Tarries contains the heart of his message. AW Tozer called Ravenhill "a man sent from God" who "appeared at [a] critical moment in history", just as the Old Testament prophets did. Included are questions for group and individual study. Ravi Zacharias refers to this as "the book that shaped me...more dramatically than any other".

Improvement in Narration

The narration seemed to have come from a robot or some artificial intelligence- it didn’t seem human in some parts - the cohesion, linking phrases or sentences to the next, etc.

Overall, it’s a powerful book. I had the paper version!

narrator

I tried to listen but the narrators style for reading this takes away from the impact of the topic. He speaks clearly but far too soft a tone for a Ravenhill book.

Content is great. Spoken word is bad.

The narrator has a weird tongue issue and his voice is flat.

The content is exceptional so I will listen, but his narrator is brutal.

Amazing book, Not the best Narration. Please re-record!!

This book and his book Revival God’s Way, every preacher and believer should read! I have the book as well and will read it along with listening on audible.
I am so happy that it is on audible, I would love to hear another narration.

Incredible book by a man of God!

This is Brother Ravenhill’s magnum opus. It is a powerful wake up call to the sleepy, powerlessly, pale contemporary church to return to its apostolic, post-Pentecost beginning. This review is based upon the audible version. The audio is good, the text reader does so with passion and so makes it an interesting read, and the content is second to none. If you are burdened that something is not right in contemporary American Christianity, read this book and find the reason for your burden and an answer for what we must do.

Must Read for Ministers

This should be required reading & study for all ministers! Great wisdom! You must listen past the reader, however. He seems almost monotone. He sounds too uptight like he's trying so hard to be proper & ends up mispronouncing some words anyway which makes him sound even worse.

Great Subject Ruined By The Narration

Ravenhill's book is worth struggling through the narration. I do not know what the narrator was trying to accomplish with his continual weeping voice. Certainly, the book has bits where this voice would emphasize Ravenhill's intent in a dramatic way that is possible on audio books. However, weeping from cover to cover diluted any prospect of this.

Wow. Will read over and over.

A changed man has a changed mind.

His prayer adjusts his posture and proves his purpose.

Aside from the Word of God, this book expresses and explains the deep interactions man needs with God, for the world’s good and our joy. Wow.
