Lloyd-Jones preached this series of sermons in 1957-58 to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the great revival of 1858. He leads us through many texts of the Bible, explains the context of each verse, and the relevance of each verse to true revival. The first half of the book is dedicated to the habits of man that hinder revival, as was the masterful method of the Doctor.

Once these hindrances are addressed, MLJ gets into what happens in a revival and from that point on, you feel that you must experience these outpourings of the Holy Spirit that the Doctor describes. His amazing expositions of Scripture inspire you to look for other texts in the Bible that represent revival.

One unique teaching of MLJ is that God sends and ends revival on His own terms. Once again, he gives all the glory to God, whereas other teachers ONLY talk about what WE need to do for God to send revival. Lloyd-Jones differs from that teaching by explaining that God is sovereign in all things, ESPECIALLY when and where, and for how long, He chooses to bless us with an overwhelming sense of His presence.

Based upon that fact, MLJ always comes back to the fact that we do not have to wait on a massive worldwide revival to experience the love and presence of God. The individual Christian can experience these things, if only we seek the Lord with all of our heart.

For an even better experience of the Doctor's preaching, order these sermons on CD from Soundword in the U.S. or the MLJ Recording Trust in the UK.

As J.I. Packer put it in the forword, no other book today deals with Revival to this depth. MLJ's language is very deep yet simple enough for any true believer to grasp.

I was greatly inspired by this book to diligently pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, in a time where Christianity is defined by music, style, large congregations and buildings. Inspite of all the 'cool' things people do today in churches to attract crowds, there is no life in the worship. To a large extent, churches are spiritually dead today.

The Bridgegroom(Christ) has gone far away from his bride(the church), and our prayer to Him should be to have mercy on her, visit her, cleanse her, revive her and rejoice in her.

MLJ's exposition of this verse was a delight to me.
Isaiah 62:6-7
You who call on the LORD,
give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth.

Praise God for pastors such as MLJ.

Format: Paperback
Lloyd Jones' book on revival includes a series of sermons on various topics all related to his interpretation of historic revivals in light of Scripture. The initiative for the talks was the remembrance of a revival that occured in Great Britain 100 years prior to the date the sermons were delivered. Lloyd-Jones' purpose is to show his listeners (readers) what is behind God's revivals to encourage them/us to begin earnestly seeking God and asking him to bring revival. A strong emphasis throughout the book is that God and not man causes revival. The sermons grow out of Lloyd Jones' interpretation of Scripture that includes the Exodus deliverance of Israel and God's relationship with Moses, as well as words of the prophets. I would have liked to see more of the New Testament incorporated into this book.

Although this book is losing its contemporary feel, it is not outdated at all. Lloyd-Jones' critique of his culture is true for our culture today. An important outcome of this book for readers is that it points us to God for revival rather than any human initiatives for "church growth" or evangelism. Revival, as described by Lloyd-Jones, comes from God and has overwhelmingly supernatural consequences.

This classic work on Revival is a must have for the seeking Christian who wants more of the Lord Jesus in their lives.

Using the Welsh Revival of 1859 as an example, as well as some very profound typology from Exodus and Isaiah, Dr. Lloyd-Jones delineats the general principals of what a revival is (as well as what it isn't), hinderences to revival, and, above all the Soverignty of God in sending a revival. There is one purpose of revival, and that is to bring God glory. I know that this flies in the face of all of the popular notions of revival; a church being set afire, the USA repenting, etc. etc. But after reading this epic work you will come to understand the glory of God more deeply and appreciate this more fully.

The only criticism I have of this book is that Dr. Lloyd-Jones relies exclusively on historical examples to illustrate the biblical principles of revival. No where in the book does he share any personal experience he has had with this spiritual phenomenon; his work is totally a recounting of history.

What made Frank J. Bartleman's Azusa Street so compelling is that he was writing from an eye witness point of view. He could relate first hand, what the visitations from the Lord were like, he could give us a glimpse of the closeness of his fellowship, he could reveal just how hot the revival fire burned in his own soul. There is no indication in this book that D. Martyn-Lloyd had ever had a supernatural experience with God, although I give him a lot of credit for meticulously proving revival from history and taking a stand on it. Too many denominations today teach that the days of miracles are passed. I don't believe this for a second.

I do not want my comments to disuade any reader interested in revival from buying this work.
