Tim Keller reviews A God-Sized Vision

Categories Ministry

God sized vision We were excited to see that Tim Keller recently reviewed A God-Sized Vision: Revival Stories that Stretch and Stir.

You can read his complete review here at Redeemer’s blog, but I think this excerpt does a great job of summarizing the themes that these stories of revival share.


Revivals can be longer, lasting several years, or shorter, enduring only a few weeks; they can be more widespread, affecting a whole town or region or country, or more narrow in scope, such as just one congregation. But they are seasons in which the ordinary operations of the Holy Spirit are intensified many-fold. 

"Sleepy" and immature believers become electrified through joyful repentance and put Christ in the center of their lives. Nominal Christians within congregations get converted and testify to the fact, which leads to more sleepy believers waking up. In turn, non-believers are drawn in to the beautified Christian community and begin embracing Christ in numbers that defy normal explanations
