The Spirit of Revival by Ewang Nelson Mfortaw is a conversation containing profound revelations that traverse both the New and Old Testaments. There is so much contained in every page of this book and there is much that can be gleaned from the writer’s words. The book is basically an invitation to take a deeper look into Christianity.
The author starts off by expounding on the Lordship of Jesus Christ. He explains the truth that Jesus brought to this world and how through this truth, we have been set free. Along the way, he explains what sin is by investigating its origin. Further, he touches on the baptism of water and that of the Holy Spirit as well as the new life and what it entails. He then delves into faith as a way of life and not just a mindset. He also explores the concepts of Sabbath and fasting. Towards the end, he submits his take on the second coming of Christ. Ultimately, the writer’s main aim is to awaken the Christian faith and adjure Christians to understand the will and mind of God. While presenting his goal, Mfortaw also points out common mistakes and errors that are made by many Christians out of their lack of knowledge.
The best attribute of the book, The Spirit of Revival is its sagacious presentation of many elements of the Bible. The depth in Ewang Nelson Mfortaw’s explanations is outstanding. He simply challenges common thinking. Time and again I felt urged to consider a deeper approach to what is contained in the Bible. His representation and explanation of Jesus as the final Sabbath as presented in the Biblical book of Hebrew was awe-inspiring. I was reminded of the beauty of focusing on God as the sole provider and fulfillment of my desires at the point where the author speaks of true contentment in the book.
I also liked the author’s writing style. Mfortaw inspired me and kindled my curiosity through questions that sprang from the account from time to time. He challenged my understanding of many aspects contained in the Word. In some cases, he juxtaposed the common point of view and the deeper realities of the Word, bringing out the contrasts between the two different stands. On one occasion he touches on the Feast of Tabernacles and how this feast was a physical representation of God living in man in later days.
The only reason that I cannot give the book a 4 stars rating is because of the many errors that dotted the plot, hence I rate it 3 out of 4 stars. Otherwise, The Spirit of Revival contains many deep revelations that any Christian who wishes to grow in their understanding of their new life should consider looking into.
