5 Revival Books You Need to Read
When you want to learn more about revival, these five books are essential for your learning library. We’ll give you a glimpse of each one below and why we love them each!
Culture of Honor by Danny Silk
For revival to take hold in our nation, the church must stand strong on two solid pillars: empowering people and confronting people.
In Matthew 20:25-26 Jesus told us that servant-hearted people are the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. He challenged His disciples to embrace humility and teach others how to embrace it. The leaders of the church must empower others instead of lording their power over others.
The current model of church authority needs reforming. By developing the practice of honor in the church and in our communities, revival will spread to our nation.
Danny Silk writes with wisdom and insight to reveal how God’s Kingdom gives us the framework for living a life of honor. Anyone interested in a developing a kingdom mentality will enjoy this book and learn how God is restoring a Kingdom mentality to the church.
Danny Silk is the senior management pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California. He and his wife Sheri have founded a family and community ministry called Loving on Purpose.
