Fresh Perspectives on the ‘Lewis Revival’

Fresh Perspectives on the ‘Lewis Revival’

Tom Lennie

Everybody loves a good story. And there’s plenty of good stories to be found in the famed Lewis revival of 1949–52. Such as the seven men who prayed together in a cold barn through long winter’s nights, two or three times a week. Or the story of the two elderly Smith sisters – aged 84 and 82 years respectively; one completely blind, the other bent double with arthritis – who received premonitions from God that revival was coming, and prayed the movement into being.

My Exceeding Joy– a blog about the Psalms

My Exceeding Joy– a blog about the Psalms

Dale Ralph Davis

I’ve been charged with writing a blog about my recently published book on Psalms 38–51 called ‘My Exceeding Joy’. Actually, I don’t write blogs; I rarely read blogs. I remember theologian Addison Leitch saying that magazines were the enemies of books. I think blogs are the enemies of books. We’d be better off if far fewer bloggers wrote blogs. So my writing a blog to commend my book is clearly hypocritical. But it’s only temporary.

The great nineteenth–century preacher Charles Spurgeon described the Song of Solomon as the Most Holy Place. He compared the historical books of the Bible to the outer courts of the temple, and the Gospels, Epistles, and Psalms to the Holy Place: the place that only the priests could enter. His point was that, to a greater and lesser extent, all these books bring us near to God. But the Song of Songs is ‘the Most Holy Place’, the inner sanctum, a holy of holies. It ‘occupies a sacred enclosure …

Karen Martin

Do you know someone living with dementia? Most of us will be able to answer yes to this; more people are being diagnosed each day and it is a disease which affects over 850,000 people.

This means that dementia is not only about the person living with the disease – its impact is far more wide–reaching. Memorable Loss is a story of friendship, and how an Alzheimer diagnosis challenged, changed and deepened my friendship with Kathleen.
