Cymbala knows the difference firsthand. Twenty-five years ago, his own church, the Brooklyn Tabernacle, was a struggling congregation of twenty. Then they began to pray...God began to move...street-hardened lives by the hundreds were changed by the love of Christ...and today they are six thousand strong.
The story of what happened to this broken-down church in one of America's meanest neighborhoods points the way to new spiritual vitality in the church and in your own life. Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire shows what the Holy Spirit can do when believers get serious about prayer and the Gospel. As this compelling audiobook reveals, God moves in life-changing ways when we set aside our own agendas, take him at his word, and listen for his voice.

"A book that voices some of the oldest Christian wisdom with the vivid immediacy of telling tomorrow's news." (Booklist)
Litterally. I have been longing for a deeper, more real connection with God through prayer than I've been experiencing for a long time. This audiobook has revived and inspired me. After listening to it, I am left with the same feeling I got from "In His Steps". I have new hope that real change is possible in my life and in my church and my city. A must read for anyone who truly desires to know God better and fulfil His will for your life.
I will keep this book to listen to again and again. I've already recommended the book to a number of friends. As the Executive Director of a pregnancy resource center that is struggling because of the economy, I found this book encouraging and inspirational, I learned a lot from Pastor Cymbala which I have and will continue to incorporate into my daily life. Prayer has always been key to me, but has now taken on a whole new dimension. If you need something "fresh" in your life this is the book to choose. I will be listening to this one for a long time. Good investment.

I read this book several years ago and decided to buy the audio version to listen to. It started a new fire in me about the committment we all need in regards to prayer.I was so excited I purchased 30 hard copys and gave them away in our church. We are having Concerts of Prayer on a regular basis. Don't miss the opportunity to buy this audio book...it is awesome!
I loved this real-life story of imperfection and brokenness... and how God continued (and still continues) to step in when there is no hope. God used this book to awaken in me a desperation for Him and provide an expectancy in me of what can happen when we are desperate enough to cry out to Him for help.
This book was highly recommended by a church I was part of for many years. It took me almost a decade to finally get to it, but I'm glad I did. So much of what Pastor Cymbala shares resonates with me that I can't begin to describe. I'm so encouraged and convicted to truly cry out to God in utter dependence on the Holy Spirit...in intercession for lost souls, for the church, for pastors and ministers, for my own ministry as a father and pastor. This book definitely ministered to me on a practical level and the narration truly made the words come alive.
I so enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who feels distant from God or searching for more peace and power in their life. The biblical truths and personal testimonies included will stir your heart and draw you nearer to the Lord!
I read this book a number of years ago and for some reason it came back to mind. I found it on Audible and totally enjoyed listening to not only the story but also the music from the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir....one of the benefits of an audio book. My flame for a prayer ministry has been fanned!
I was very touched by this story, and I believe God had the lady share this book with me for a purpose that I pray I fulfill!
