Publisher's Summary

Pastor Jim Cymbala believes that Jesus wants to renew his people, to call us back from spiritual dead ends, apathy, and lukewarm religion.

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.

An answer to prayer

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.

GREAT book. Well worth the investment.

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.

Exciting

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!

God is soo cool

What made the experience of listening to Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire the most enjoyable?

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.

A Testimony to the Power of Prayerful Ministry

Jim Cymbala shares part of the incredible and miraculous story of his unlikely call to ministry, its improbable success, and the rise of Brooklyn Tabernacle Church. From the outset he paints a picture of how our calling, our ministry, and our churches are 100% dependent on God. Story after story reinforce the amazing way God honors the fidelity of his people to rely upon Him in all that they do for Him. He calls the church to be a House of Prayer, and the story expounds on how Cymbala has fought for that to be the case in his own ministry, his family and at his church. He also takes the next step in boldly exhorting us and our churches to ground our ministries in prayer as well, living in dependency upon God. This title will encourage anybody, yet, for the Holy Spirit indwelled Christian, God, reveals much about who He is and what He's doing in this world through this work. Enjoy.

Excellent Perspective on Prayer!

This was an easy book to read and understand. If you want to dive more into prayer and learn about the effectiveness of prayer within a ministry as well as everyday life this is the book you will want to read.

Cymbala's incorporation of his life experiences as well as biblical truths show you how to build an effective Ministry for the kingdom of God and how to reach the Lost.

This is an excellent book. I would recommend it to anyone especially those wanting to start a Ministry.

Understanding the importance of incorporating prayer into Ministry and letting that be the foundation of your church will change the lives, and knowledge of Prayer in the minds of leadership all the way to the congregation, making them unified in faith.

Simple. Straightforward. Cymbala at his best.

The narrator is excellent. He is animated and engaging.

The writing is open, honest and thought-provoking. I had already read the book. Listening was just as rewarding. Jim Cymbala freely admits that the "success" (as we would see it) of The Brooklyn Tabernacle is all due to their submission, listening to and obeying the Holy Spirit. A recommended listen.
