When we think about revival we usually look back to some nebulous time when God decided to move in a mighty way and we wish it might be so in our generation. Warren Wiersbe’s compilation of short biographical sketches of some men and women God greatly used to bring revival to the church sheds light on the fact that our Lord is always willing to work. The fields are white; the laborers are few. The biographies are short, well written, and extremely insightful and will challenge you to be a man or woman through whom God will work in this generation! Invest in your walk, get this book and make it part of your daily reading regimen. You will be more than blessed in the process.

If you want to know the temperature of your spiritual life, look at the thermostat setting on your prayer life. Prayer is the most misunderstood and neglected aspect of the Christian life. It has been estimated that most Christians pray three to five minutes a day. Compare that to the time many spend complaining, and you'll gain insight into the spiritual and emotional condition of our day. Yet God has constructed the world in such a way that there is much He won’t do in a Christian’s life apart from prayer. Prayer, when combined with faith, can accomplish great things.
In this practical and comprehensive overview of prayer, Tony Evans covers a variety of topics, including:
• Principles of productive prayer
• The power of prayer and praise
• Fasting and prayer
• Prayer and God's purposes
Tony’s expositions of various passages on prayer will help you realize its critical importance and encourage you to make it a dominant mark of your life.

Sometimes the big and small decisions in life seem overwhelming. How do you know what choices to make about your career, kids, relationships? Even when you make good decisions, how do you avoid temptation along the way?

Most significantly, this practical book shows you how to have the kind of faith that perseveres in persecution, resists temptation, and responds obediently to God’s Word.
