When we call ourselves Christians, we expect that our love for Jesus, our hunger for His presence, our urgent longing to see Him again will be a constant, motivating force in our lives, writes Anne Graham Lotz. Yet sometimes …in the busyness of our days or the duties of our jobs or the familiar habits of our worship or the everyday routine of our homes, the longing becomes ...more

I read this book mainly at my wife's urging so that she could discuss some aspects of the book with me. It could be summarized by a call to those who name Christ as Lord to take the relationship seriously--to embrace holiness, to praise Him, to seek wisdom from Him from His word, to walk in love with Him, etc. For these reasons, this book has value. There were a few small nigglies that aren't worth going over here, but my one criticism is more to do with evangelicalism in general.

The problem is

This incredible exploration of Isaiah’s life gives us a glimpse of the kind of relationship God wants to have with His people. Anne Graham Lotz investigates the text with profound illustrations that clearly flesh out her point. Her approach is forthright, yet humble. She addresses sin in our nation and our churches, while acknowledging her own.
Anne’s winsome commitment to the unchanging Word of God draws the reader to conclude too, that it’s time to take a stand for what we believe while kneelin

My husband has had an interest in national revival for years, and his enthusiasm for the subject has rubbed off on me. This is a book he placed in my hands after he heard Anne Graham Lotz speak at a conference for pastors. After reading it, I can understand why he declared her to be the best speaker he had heard on the subject of PERSONAL revival.

Revival means "recovery of breath", and before a nation can be revived, individuals must be revived. Anne Graham Lotz uses Isaiah as an example of a m

This book is a great impact and awesome pointer. Love about example of Isaiah 6 relate with her mom, about the differences of furniture lights and tv media lights similar as God's light that exposes us.

This was a Bible study presented to my through my church. Many other women said the book this study was based on was great, so I was looking forward to it. I never did pick up the original book though...maybe that was my mistake.

There are videos that go along with this workbook, but the have little to do with the workbook.

The book takes participants through daily scripture readings with a practical way to study each scripture through personal meditation and journaling. While very practical, it

This book, written by Billy Graham’s daughter – Ann Graham Lotz, is really good. She writes about the prophet Isaiah and his personal encounter with God and subsequent wake up call, revival. Ann ties the scripture in nicely with an everyday example of a women’s personal revival and other examples from her personal life. I liked the book, it was insightful and Ann’s knowledge of scripture is superior. Her writing style is good but a bit too emotional for me. I guess I’m more of a facts and analyt ...more

This book takes the example of Isaiah and his commissioning in Book 6 as a call to deeper faith. It had a slightly annoying style of lists that wandered forwards and backwards over the page and some of it seemed quite US-based (it was written shortly after 9/11). Nonetheless it included good solid Bible teaching and was a prompt to not neglect Bible reading and prayer.

Anne Graham Lotz does a superb job of inspiring the reader. She has some of her father's preaching and teaching style and ability. I would encourage anyone who seeks a closer walk with the Lord to read this book. Lotz has frequent references to Scripture and some of the great hymns of the faith.

This book is great and I think it might be a future bible study. It's intent is to spark personal revival by looking at the prophet Isaiah and his declaration of 'I saw the LORD' and how he was changed by the experience.

Revival starts with yourself...and this book is an excellent tool to help you navigate 'waking up'.

Very wise insight from the dvd sessions as well...would suggest doing both book and dvd together.
Very introspective book.
