 Re:

I have not read any of Charles Finneys writings.. only heard of him. I was wondering if it is true that he is one of the founders of the Inclusion doctrine?

 Fire it up!!!

I got Finney's Revival Lectures after hearing about it from Keith Green's reference to it. I could not believe how powerful it was/is. At first I started highlighting the parts I liked. After about 10 pages into it, I realized that I highlighted just about everything... Revival is what we need today more than ever!!! If you haven't read it, I would encourage you to check it out. I even found a copy at the L.A. library before I found a place where I could buy it. It is worth reading and is a good addition to my personal library!

I'm not certain about the "inclusion doctrine" thing, but I seriously doubt it. Finney's call for personal repentence and hopelessness without Christ makes that extremely unlikely. Perhaps you should read Charles Finney's autobiography. I have a copy of it, although it is on loan to someone right now. I do believe that it is available online (or at least, it used to be). Every time that I read it, I grow hungry to see the Lord move in my life!

On a sidenote, there are several other books that were credited to Charles Finney. However, if you read the preface of those books (like the [i]Revival Lectures[/i]), you will notice that they were actually delivered "ex tempore" and published much later. They were produced from the notes of gathered messages that he preached, and from short essays that he authored. But they make for some great reading too! I'm not totally certain, but I do believe that the only book that was actually physically penned by Finney was his autobiography -- and this he was reluctant to write (as he says in chapter 1).

There is a nice portion of the autobiography located at Last Days Ministries online. It is entitled: [i]God Comes to New York[/i]. Here is the link:

Enjoy...and be challenged and encouraged!

 Re:

If you want to find Finney's works and a lot of hard to find material (like a piece on fashion he wrote to a magazine edited by William Booth) you can go to gospeltruth.net It even has biographies by others who knew him well. I really enjoyed the site, though it may be a little scattered at the first two links to actually read stuff. I hope you all enjoy it.

On a personal note, no piece outside the Bible has impacted me as deeply as lectures on Revival by Charles Finney, which I have read over and over and keep gleaning insights from. He has more to say about the power of prayer and true revival than anyone else I have read of and more authority to back up what he has to say. If you read his autobiography, more properly entitled, "The Memoirs of Charles G. Finney," then you will see the hand of the Lord all over this humble man's life.

I agree that his lectures on prevailing prayer and the wisdom it takes to win souls are the most profoundly impacting in addition to actually doing what the "soften your heart" Lecture III does to you when you do what it (and Hosea 10:12) says. I have seen permanent fruit in my own life and prayer meetings I have been in when this has been applied.

I would like to say that Keith Green said he was born again again when he applied that Third Lecture and his friends all experienced the same (except his wife who affected another way) if you read his biography No Compromise and many other eminent men of God were deeply impacted and even revolutionized by it according to J. Oswald Sanders who read a lot of bios.

May God richly bless all who seek Him day and night to pour out His Spirit on our poor, lost, deceived nation in danger of the wrath of God.

Daniel
