Review of Keeping the Fire by Rolland Baker

Rolland Baker and his wife Heidi Baker are missionaries in Mozambique, Africa. One of my favorite books (which I'm reading for the 3rd time) is their devotional "Reckless Devotion" so I was really looking forward to reading this book: Keeping the Fire.

It's very good, but not as inspiring as the devotional.

Baker lists 5 ways for either a church or a person to "keep the fires of revival going"
1, Find God
2. Depend on Miracles
3. Go to the Least
4. Suffer for Him, if Necessary
5. Rejoice in the Lord

He gives examples in each chapter of things that have either happened to him or their ministry.

I totally agree these are all important, but it's not til the end that he wraps it up in "Jesus just wants a relationship with you." "He could dazzle the world with amazing miracles, but all He cares about is a relationship."

That I can totally agree with!

The Bakers are amazing people with an amazing ministry. I'd recommend this book if only to be inspired by lives that go all out for God.

Note - I was given this book by the publisher to review.

Review of A Minute of Vision for Men

What a great devotional book for men! A Minute of Vision for Men takes no time to read an inspirational thought that connects life with Scripture. Something meant to stick with them during the day. A perfect way to center your mind and day on God!

I received a book from Tyndale House in exchange for an unbiased review.
