From a recovering “leadershipaholic": our best model is the first one.
With all our sleek ministry models, it's a wonder our churches are declining—until we read Acts 6:4, “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the word.”
After a long, sometimes trying ministry journey, Daniel Henderson was relieved to discover what the apostles knew from the start: The main thing must stay the main thing. It worked in their pagan times, and it will in ours.
Old Paths, New Power: Reviving Our Churches through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word calls us back to the tried-and-true: pray and proclaim the word.
Henderson, who leads a growing church revival ministry, guides you through the essentials of sparking a spiritual renaissance:
Our churches don't need fresh models and fancy things; they need the Holy Spirit, and He rains down when we pray and proclaim the word. Read Old Paths, New Power and follow God's master plan.
Daniel Henderson speaks about the call to all pastors and leaders to return back to the Bible and prayer. This book has challenged my passion for God and His Word. In any generation, it is easy to forsake the Old Paths that was laid by the saints. In this book, you will find that Henderson gives a call to return to the ways of God. We are to content for the faith that was once delivered to us. Mr. Henderson affirms this power call. From Exodus 18:19b-22, Daniel highlights 3 priorities that Jethro gave to Moses: Prayer, Teaching the Word, and Empowering others to Serve." Henderson says these old paths can bring new power and new joy.
I highly recommend this book to all believers especially leaders.
I was gripped with this book, it is so profound yet very readable and enjoyable. In fact I could not put it down and I found the many quotes by different people and scripture references throughout the book fascinating, enjoyable and inspirational. Old Paths New Power is a compelling must read for pastors, prayer leaders and just anyone who is passionate about prayer or just plain interested in learning more about praying.
