THE CHURCH MUST FIRST REPENT Chapters on Revival 
By J. Edwin Orr
FOREWORD
It was claimed for a book which appeared during the great Revival in Englandand America eighty years ago, and profoundly influenced its course, that men read itupon their knees. Here, too, is a book which should drive many to humble themselvesbefore the face of God. Its theme is Revival—no hackneyed topic surely, but the mosturgent of all questions confronting the Church of Christ. Who can deny that theawakening of the Lord's people to a proper sense of their responsibility before Him, isthe key to the solution of the moral and spiritual problems of the present hour? Thefishermen of Galilee, lacking faith, trembled in the presence of the powers of evil. They deserted the Master when He needed them most, and hid themselves behindshut doors. Yet, a few weeks later, we behold them, energized by the Holy Ghost,emerging with boldness to proclaim Christ everywhere, and actually beginning toturn the world upside down.Do we believe that the same Power which wrought that mighty transformationis at the disposal of the Church today? That is the challenge of these pages. Here is atrumpet-blast, a summons to all who profess and call themselves Christians toconsider their ways, to mark their failures, and, with contrite hearts, to dedicatethemselves without reserve to the Lord for whatever He may appoint.Now and again, it may be, some bold conclusion of the author's may disturbour complacency, and even provoke us to dissent. But let us not dismiss achallenging opinion until we have allowed it to search our hearts, and until we arethoroughly satisfied that we are blameless before God. Mr. Orr has a right to beheard, for he speaks out of an experience of divine leading and blessing, so rich andvaried, as to enable him to bear a unique testimony to the faithfulness of God. Therecord of the Lord's dealings with him is to be found in eight volumes which havecommanded a phenomenal circulation in all parts of the English-speaking world. Those who have derived inspiration from their glowing pages will accord a heartywelcome to the book now before us.Chas. T. Cooke
