Many Christians today are frustrated with their Church experience. The Christianity they’ve experienced thus far is neither the fire they have read about in such Scriptures as Isaiah 64:1-2, or in times of historic – even viral – revival and spiritual awakening. I Understand. I wrote my first book on revival (“When The Fire Fell: The Great Welsh Revival of 1904 and Its Meaning For Revival Today”) over 15 years ago, and I have been a changed person ever since. Perhaps like me, you find yourself spiritually frustrated and longing for a genuinely contagious faith. Or, to change metaphors, you long for the fire of God’s Presence in your life and in the life of the Church. You are one of a select band that A.W. Tozer described as “the children of the burning heart”. You refuse to be satisfied with the status quo. I’ve got good news. God agrees with you! He isn’t satisfied with the Church as it is, either. You see, I believe your longings for genuine spiritual awakening touch the very heart of God for His Church. I am convinced that the issue isn’t whether or not God wants a viral Church, a Church with it’s “hair on fire” for Him. He does. The question becomes how we get there. I believe God has a plan. I believe God intends to return the fire of His Presence and Holiness to His Church. God wants to set the heart of His Church on fire, and the impact of that fire will be more viral than anything you and I can possibly imagine.
The Viral Book Project
I believe God wants you and your Church to be a part of His plan for spiritual awakening. In the Spring of 2007 God gave our fellowship one of the most profound words I have ever received in 40 years of being a believer. He declared that He intends to return the fire of His Presence to His Church by restoring holiness and the fear of God, genuine repentance over sin and greater intimacy with Himself. I have written and spoken numerous times since then about what I believe this means. I have summarized that message in a new book, “The Inextinguishable Blaze: God’s Call To Holiness, Repentance, Intimacy and Spiritual Awakening” (you can click here to preview and “Look Inside” on Amazon). I believe that the message of this book expresses the heart of God in our day, both for your life personally and for the life of His larger Church. Because I believe in and am committed to this message, I want to maximize its spread and impact. My prayer is for this book to “go viral” and that’s where you come in.
A Viral Book Offer. We want to send you a FREE copy of this book, “The Inextinguishable Blaze”. That’s right. It’s yours, FREE and we pay the postage. Simply use the “Leave A Reply” section on this page below to send us your name, church name (if applicable) and mailing address (they won’t appear publicly), and we will ship it out to you. No gimmicks. Just a free book. Period.
A Viral Gift. If the message of this book touches your heart, we’re asking you to help financially underwrite this free book distribution (Yep, there really is no “free lunch” . . . or “free book”). It costs us roughly $7 to print and ship each copy. So, a gift of $25 would cover the cost of your book AND allow us to give away two more copies to people who respond asking for a free book. If every person who receives a free book and believes in the message gives a gift of $25 to cover their book AND provide two more books to give away, it won’t be long before our viral book project is spreading like a contagion . . . or a wild fire! The real question is, are you interested in becoming a viral part of what God is doing in our day? If you are, use the “Leave A Reply” below to let us know what you want to do. Gifts for this project can be sent to Rising River Media, P.O. Box 18793, Spokane, WA 99228. Write “Viral Book Project” on the “Memo” line of your check.
A Viral Radio Project. But wait, there’s more! We are in talks with radio networks which can air a 15-minute program on 8 stations for as little as $100 per week, reaching hundreds of people. Again, the focus of the program would be to talk about the message of the book and offer listeners a FREE copy. But to make this happen we need sponsors or underwriters who share the vision of what God wants to do and are willing to help underwrite this project financially. We do NOT plan to make ANYTHING on this project. All funds will go into book production, distribution (which explains why we’re a “not-for-profit” publishing company!). Again, use the “Leave A Comment” section below to let us know what you would like to do.
Arthur Wallis was right. The greatest challenge of the Church in our generation is to discover what God is doing in our time and to throw ourselves into it. It is YOUR greatest challenge, too. And “The Viral Book Project” is one way you can get involved today in what God is doing. We look forward to hearing from you!
