 Leonard Ravenhill Biography: In The Light Of Eternity

In Light of Eternity: The Life of Leonard Ravenhill
by Mack Tomlinson

Ravenhill’s spiritual life, uniquely marked by experiential godliness, was from its beginning rooted in eighteenth century English Methodism. Had he lived two hundred years earlier, he could have been one of the men laboring in the gospel with John Wesley or George Whitefield. His grandmother, mother, and father were all converted to Christ through that spiritual heritage. Converted at age fifteen, Ravenhill later trained for Christian ministry under the saintly influence of Samuel Chadwick at Cliff College in England. Characterized by a deep life of prayer, passionate evangelistic zeal and a powerful preaching gift, his ministry drew traffic-jamming crowds in the British Isles during the 1930’s and 1940’s. Along with D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones and J. Edwin Orr, Ravenhill was one of the few specialists in the 20th century regarding the message of genuine revival and spiritual awakening.

"Those who know of Leonard Ravenhill recognize in him the religious specialist, the man sent from God 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. Such a man as this is not an easy companion. He insists on being a Christian all the time and everywhere. That marks him out as different. Why do we have men of such fiery swords as Ravenhill? They are sick inside when they see the children of heaven acting like the sons of earth. To such men as these, the church owes a debt too heavy to pay." - A.W. Tozer

"I was introduced to Leonard Ravenhill at the very beginning of my Christian pilgrimage and the impact of his life upon mine remains until this day. He lived as one who dwelt in the shadow of the Almighty and he preached as one sent from God. He knew God's presence, wore His mantle, bore His burdens, and spoke His truth. He was the rarest of commodities in his day and ours - a man of God." - Paul Washer

"Leonard Ravenhill was one of the few men I have ever known who was a true prophet. I am glad this book has finally been written." - David Wilkerson

“My father lived daily in light of eternity, always seeking to please the One who enlisted him as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Before he ever stood in the pulpit, he stood before God. He was a man of prayer. Prayer was his life and his preaching reflected the fact that he had been alone with God.” - David Ravenhill

"This volume left me in tears. Oh the burden of a man that came into vital contact with God and stayed there. He preached from experience, saw Christ as worth everything. Saw eternity as more real then time. The cross overshadowed this dear brothers life. 'We don't know God!' was his cry as he saw the spiritual state of christendom in his day. Oh may we learn to seek God till He may be found in our day and allow ourselves to have a true revelation of Jesus Christ that will forever change us." - Greg Gordon

Brothers and Sisters,

This book has been a tremendous blessing to my spirit. What a heritage God left in brother Ravenhill. I had an opportunity to connect with Mack Tomilson in friendship in the Gospel. So I am more then excited to freely promote this book on SermonIndex.net

Leonard Ravenhill's book "Why Revival Tarries" was one of the major reasons for the burden for this website ministry to start featuring brother Ravenhill's audio sermons.

It is almost beyond description how encouraging it is to read this wonderful volume. Biographies were something Ravenhill constantly recommended for believers to read to be encouraged and uplifted to follow Jesus Christ more faithfully and passionately.
