While I'm sure we'll read of some unpleasant things
Bro. Leonard Ravenhill has had a dramatic impact on my spiritual life, of that much I am sure. I didn't start listening to his sermons until earlier this year and I'm up to listening to about ninety of them, and have bought four of his books (not including the biography, but he didn't write that). I recommended him to a friend who's father had two books by Bro. Len, "Sodom had no Bible" and "Meat for Men" at first he didn't seem to like them too much, but once he really started to read them he couldn't put them down! I feel the same way about those books I have of his. "America is Too Young to Die" is a classic no matter how old. But more than that, I have found Leonard Ravenhill challenging me to prayer and early-rising, and labor to know God deeply. More than that he had challenged me to discipline more than I used to be. He has recommended books that have helped me tremendously in his sermons, like "The Existence and Attributes of God" by Stephen Charnock, which was a glorious book. He caught my attention with the attributes of God in simply speaking of them, and lifted up Christ and brought men low to the ground.While I was extremely young when he died, I feel that he has definitely been almost like a grandfather in the spiritual realm. His warm (or fiery) voice coming through the computer is still something I enjoy listening to. Well, now that I have spoken of the man, I cannot wait for the biography.
