Revival and Revivalism: A Book Review

Bobbie Jamieson at 9 Marks has written a very good review of Iain Murray’s classic book Revival & Revivalism, and follows it up with 7 important lessons for us to reflect on:

1. Don’t Confuse an External Act with Inward Change.
2. Beware of Producing False Converts.
3. Be Cautious about Giving Immediate Assurance of Salvation.
4. Tether your Ministry to What God Requires in his Word.
5. Make Sure your Theology Drives your Practice, not Vice Versa.
6. Don’t Equate Outward Success with a Divine Endorsement.
7. Celebrate the Normal.
