In Touch Ministries

The life and legacy of the British evangelist Leonard Ravenhill has been now written for the first time since his passing in 1994. His ministry spanned a majority of the 20th century, beginning in 1930 in the British Isles until 1958, then in America and worldwide until his death.

During the 1930’s and 1940’s, Ravenhill’s powerful evangelistic preaching ministry developed increasingly and his preaching was so effective and engaging that it drew traffic-jamming crowds in various places in Britain, even during the years of World War II, all over England and different parts of Wales, Scotland, and Ireland.


Charles Stanley says, “Leonard Ravenhill has left a tremendous legacy behind for us, but what bothers me is that it seems that he has almost been forgotten. It seems that many pastors today are not even interested in reading about a man like Leonard and are not interested in reading what he wrote or hearing what he preached. Today when I mention his name or his books, its like they stand there puzzled, not knowing who or what I am talking about. We have truly lost someone great in the passing of Leonard Ravenhill. ”This definitive biography covers his entire life from birth into adulthood, his calling to the ministry, training, and his launch into evangelistic work all over Britain, as well as his American years until his death at the age of eighty-seven in 1994.

—David Wilkerson

Leonard Ravenhill is one of the few men I’ve ever known who was a true prophet. I am delighted someone is finally writing this book.

—A. W. Tozer

Those who know Leonard Ravenhill recognize in him the specialist, the man sent from God, not to carry on the conventional work of the church, but to battle the priests of Baal on their own mountain-top, to shame the careless priest at the altar, to face the false prophet and to warn the people who are being led astray by him.

No wonder no one wants to remember him and his words.

My wife used to go to his prayer meetings at Last Days Ministries. She said, "he was all business".

Thank the Lord that Leonard did not battle the priests of Baal, but the Lord did. Leonard was just a willing vessel to let the Lord expose the religious system through him as should all of us continue to do who are still living.

Here is a quote you can put on the back of the book.
My wife says, "his love for the Lord was so consuming that he probably would not even like a book written about himself."

 Re:

He was indeed a hard man. I saw his son, David, preach a few weeks ago and he spoke of his upbringing as being very tough and how the Lord had to change a lot of his mindset on things. It was revealing and enlightening to hear about how life was on the inside with Bro. Len. He truly did practice what he preached: a hard message.

 Re:

I have heard Len also and I think as I read everyday on SI, that we lift men up way too high. We really hurt each other when we do that. He was a man and a brother like the rest of us and certainly was not perfect.

David is a blessing just like his Dad. I have met him also and had lunch with him. He is almost the polar opposite of his Dad. Very gentle.

I also don't think to be a good father that you have to be "hard". Be hard on the prophets of Baal but not that same hardness on your children.

David's testimony is good and just proves to all that his Dad was just a mere man like the rest of us and we should bear that in mind. Obviously, David has the freedom to be frank about his upbringing and knowing David, he does it without disparaging his father. Who of us are perfect fathers?

 Re:

God used Leonard Ravenhill to fan a flame that burned within me into an inferno. Was he legalistic and in needing a greater understanding of some things? Sure. Some of the things he taught were just plain wrong, and if not careful, it could bring people into a legalistic mindset. I know, because I've been there and back.

But with that said, there is a great deal that Ravenhil was that I want to be. He's definitely been a father of faith to me, though dead long before I was ever saved. I look forward to getting to read about his life. While I'm sure we'll read of some unpleasant things, I'm sure we'll read of many more things marked by the glory of God.
