Overview

Why do Christians fail to speak up with power and influence? Why do so few listen when God clearly speaks? In recent years God has given America's churches the ear of our nation. The aftermath of 9/11 and the Gulf War saw people, seeking a word from heaven, flood to local congregations. Why did churches miss their rare opportunity to speak a word from God to this eager audience? Because Christians-neither those in the pew nor in the pulpit-courageously call down the fire of God-speaking the unvarnished, unabashed truth about how God expects His people to live. Dr. Jimmy Pritchard pleads with laypersons and pastors to follow the example of the Old Testament prophets Elijah and Elisha-paying whatever price is necessary to proclaim God's Word in a way that demands a hearing. In this thoughtful, practical study of 1 and 2 Kings, Pritchard shows how everyday believers can be used by God to stand in fear of no one and usher in a time of spiritual awakening.
