Item description for Calling Down the Fire by Jimmy Pritchard...
Why do Christians fail to speak up with power and influence? Why do so few listen when God clearly speaks? In recent years God has given America's churches the ear of our nation. The aftermath of 9/11 and the Gulf War saw people, seeking a word from heaven, flood to local congregations. Why did churches miss their rare opportunity to speak a word from God to this eager audience? Because Christians-neither those in the pew nor in the pulpit-courageously call down the fire of God-speaking the unvarnished, unabashed truth about how God expects His people to live. Dr. Jimmy Pritchard pleads with laypersons and pastors to follow the example of the Old Testament prophets Elijah and Elisha-paying whatever price is necessary to proclaim God's Word in a way that demands a hearing. In this thoughtful, practical study of 1 and 2 Kings, Pritchard shows how everyday believers can be used by God to stand in fear of no one and usher in a time of spiritual awakening.

An action packed story Apr 8, 2006
The adventures of Chico and his friends keeps this story moving fast and teaches children about another culture. You can't put this book down. The guide in the back has great discussion questions. This is a must for all Christian Schools!

Excellent Book Jan 2, 2006
I really enjoyed reading this book. It surprised me I didn't want to put it down. This would be a great book to read to your children at night. It gives a new perspective on missions. It is very enjoyable to see how missions affect the lives of others from their point of view. I highly recommend this book. Buy it for your self and as a unique and insightful gift for a friend
True life in Central America Dec 25, 2005
This book captivates the audience from the very first paragraph. The story of this young boy lets you see what life is like in his part of the world and how he comes to know Christ through the actions of the man in the green jeep. The study guides are very helpful when reading this book to children. One can't wait to hear more from this new author, and perhaps learn more about the life of people who are so much less fortunate than we are here in the U.S.
Wonderful! Dec 15, 2005
I enjoyed this book and I don't even have kids. It wonderfully describes a young boy's day-to-day life in Honduras. And makes you understand how much children need love and support no matter where they live.
