Editorial Reviews

ForeWord Manazine
While Reid frequently refers back to early church history citing well-known Christian fathers such as John Wesley, George Whitefield, and Jonathon Edwards, the author does so without merely offering dry statistical data of their influences on today's church. Rather, Reid brings to life these church figures, making interesting comments about the men as real, flawed individuals whom God used despite their weaknesses. Each chapter is likewise complete with practical ways for Christians to further develop their personal faith journey. Readers will appreciate Reid's ability to balance information with inspiration.

    Lead, Join, or Get Out of the Way!

    Join the Movement


    Join the Movement, written by Alvin L. Reid, tells of how major events such as the Great Awakening are started by young people. Throughout the book, Alvin tells of the lives of the young people that sparked the Great Awakening. He mentions that most of history's main events are started by young people.
    Because movements and revivals do not just happen over night, Alvin mentions that movements start with vision. Someone has to have a vision, plan it, and do something about it. One illustration used towards the end of the book is about a college aged girl that was burdened about the lives of people on her campus. She prayed and finally decided to start a prayer group. She asked a couple of her friends to join to start off the group. Hoping some great impact only God can miraculously do, the girls began praying and getting their lives straight. Soon, word spread to the school officials what an impact this group was having. They were asked to give a testimony in chapel. After speaking of what God has done with their lives and the group, a revival sparked on campus.
    One concept that Alvin uses in this book is "Lead, Join, or Get Out of the Way". This idea leaves you thinking about your own standing. At the end of the book, Alvin says that we are the twenty-ninth chapter of Acts. Acts chapter twenty-eight talks about how Paul kept preaching the gospel. We need to preach the gospel in order to start a revival in our nation and world!
