Marvellous Melbourne and Spiritual Power

Marvellous Melbourne and Spiritual Power

$19.99

Paperback

Marvellous Melbourne and Spiritual Power is a unique record of the rich Christian spiritual heritage of Melbourne. The foundations for this heritage were laid within the city's first months of European settlement, when Henry Reed preached the gospel at Port Phillip in 1835. In the decades that followed, many gathered regularly to pray for evangelistic and missionary activity, and for a revival of faith in the young nation. One significant outcome was the growth of a flourishing evangelical movement in Victoria with its distinctive Keswick-style convention ministry, which originated in England and proclaimed abundant life and full salvation.

This is a story of how God equips ordinary people to become extraordinary leaders in his service. It is a powerful testimony to the importance of persevering prayer and intercession in the deep reviving work of God in his church and the wider community.

"Will Renshaw's book left me pondering the question of why so many of today's churches and Christian ministries seem to have lost the hunger for the fullness of God's Spirit evidenced in a commitment to corporate prayer for revival among God's people and the evangelisation of the world. Is our current spiritual malaise due to the fact that "we have not, because we ask not"?"
- David Price, Chairman - Belgrave Heights Convention, Former Principal of the Bible College of Victoria
