's review

it was amazing

Of the 70 books I read in 2019, this book is the best.

Mark Sayers brings much needed HOPE to the dismal realities of 2019. His most helpful insight: that times of crisis are actually opportunities for God to move in revival.

Sayers combines a broad understanding of modern times with a historical pattern of how revivals happen.

He thinks 2019 is primed for revival: "history shows it's precisely at moments like this—when the church appears to be sliding into unalterable decline, when culture is shaken by upheaval, when the world globalizes, opening up new frontiers & fostering chaos/change—that God moves again”

"As the gap between what our culture promises and what it delivers grows wider, its failures create openings for the gospel."

Haha - if 2019 Tim could only have known the desolation that was to come in 2020!
