Kregel Publications When God Breaks Through: Sermons on Revival

Licensed to preach at an early age of twelve and ordained at fifteen, Havner spent a lifetime calling people to repentance. A popular revivalist known for his homespun storytelling and memorable wordplay, Havner boldly proclaimed the Word of God for seventy-three years. The author of more than thirty books, Havner's sermons are favorites among pastors who find his style refreshing, his quotes memorable, and his message convincing. In this collection of ten revival sermons, Havner's hard-hitting words proclain the biblical message of heaven, hell, sin, repentance, sacrifice, holiness, prayer, and the lordship of Christ--themes that resonate with as much relevance today as when Havner first preached them.

I cannot get enough of Vance Havner. Thank goodness that Dennis J. Hester put together these sermons from a fantastic Man of God. Hester did a wonderful job compiling this book. This book contains " just plain old good preaching" and it will bless you heart. You will never go wrong reading Havner. I am trying to secure all the books I can by Vance Havner.

I got my first Vance Havner devotional this last year from a friend. It was fantastic, we started using it around the table at supper. I then purchased this book for my father for Christmas, even though I had not read it. He started raving about it. So I was forced to pick up a copy for myself. I love Havners down to earth feel and stories. He was no lecturer from on high. He has such an honest feel about him. As a pastor I tend to read with a practical eye for what I can use and theological correctness, but with this book I find myself worshiping the King of glory and my spirit revived. Highly recommended.

Dr. Vance Havner's passion was revival and calling the church back to it's priority, making Jesus Christ Lord of all. Havner said, "Jesus is Lord of all or He's not Lord at all." Dr. Billy Graham said, "Vance Havner has done more to stir hearts for revival than anyone in America." Havner was not an evangelist, but an exhorter, as he liked to call himself. He said, "I have come to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable." In this book are sermons that will stir your heart. It's the fourth book I've compiled on Havner's material.

Outstanding Book! Tells us of what we're losing on the hope of revival from the pulpits of evangelists and pastors today.
