Description of Finney On Revival by Charles Finney
Finney wrote, "A revival is nothing else than a new beginning of obedience to God." Charles Finney brought forth God's Word with a boldness and clarity that resulted in the salvation of more than half a million people,and over 85% of the people who found Christ through his ministry remained faithful to the Lord throughout their lives. G. Chilchrist Lawson wrote this about him, "He was the greatest evangelist and theologian since the days of the apostles," and the reader of this Pure Gold Classic will understand why. Finney said: "The treasure is in Heaven." "A pure heart cannot be a friend of the world." "Sin is the most expensive thing in the universe." "The Christian warfare is a war between the will and Satan." "To commit yourself to Christ implies that you merge yourself in Him, make Him your end of life, make His glory your supreme end in all you do. You merge your will in His will, so that, apart from Him, you will have no will of your own. You wish for nothing, save what pleases Him." "The Bible teaches that sin is forgiven when it is repented of, but never while it is persisted in." Charles Finney, as the above quotes reveal, was blessed with a passion for souls, the fire of John the Baptist, and great zeal for the truth of God's Word. Each chapter withing this compelling book abounds with God- pleasing thoughts, anecdotes, suggestions, and words of encouragement that will bring about change in peoples' lives.
