About this title
Synopsis:Bestselling Author and Missionary Rolland Baker Reveals the Heart of True, Lasting Revival
“There has been much talk in recent years of revival,” says bestselling author and missionary Rolland Baker, “so much so that I wonder at times whether revival itself has become the object of devotion.”
Too often believers seek out revival, not the Reviver. When unchecked, they often pursue an emotional or physical experience or focus on how many came to Christ, rather than worship Jesus himself. Yet the heart of true, lasting revival is Christ–of falling in love with him so deeply that you can’t help but tell others about him. And that, says Baker, is what has fueled him, his wife, Heidi, and all of Iris Ministries over the last thirty years.
“This book is about sustaining revival over decades,” says Baker. “By that I mean it is a book about falling in love and staying in love with the person of Jesus Christ. Revival is about the Reviver, nothing more and nothing less. My prayer is that you will fall in love with him with all your heart as you read these pages, and that you will not be able to resist giving that love away, wherever you place your feet.”
From the Back Cover: In our church culture, “revival” has become a buzzword.
It’s not surprising. In a world where fads and technologies come and go, we find ourselves desperate to be reminded again and again of our first love–and to see the fire of spiritual renewal spread at home and around the globe.
Are we seeking revival . . . or the Reviver?
In this compelling new book, bestselling author and missionary Rolland Baker reveals the heart of true, lasting revival: Jesus.
Chock-full of stories from his work with Iris Global, Heidi and Rolland’s ministry in Mozambique, his book brings readers back to the sustaining source of passion, compassion and fire: an all-consuming love for Jesus Christ.
There is more to your relationship with God than you know.
Learn what it means to fall in love with Jesus Christ, and let His love spark a fire in you that will never die out.
“Rolland beautifully highlights that the key to sustained revival is a revived heart. Do you want revival? Do you want to see your family, your church, your city transformed? Prayerfully read this book, and then watch your heart burn with a greater love for Jesus.”–Bill Johnson, senior leader, Bethel Church, Redding, California; author, When Heaven Invades Earth and The Power That Changes the World
