Erich Sauer, well-loved for his trilogy of books on the history of salvation, wrote In the Arena of Faith as a personal testimony and a call to consecrated living. He begins the book: “What we need is revival, a spiritual awakening of God’s people, a powerful testimony to the world, a new vision and a fresh experience of the saving and keeping power of Christ through His Word and the Holy Spirit. The experience is possible, for Christ is alive today! He is the eternal Victor, the Exalted One, the Spring of all life and strength for everyone who puts his trust in Him. Christ never disappoints. But God grants His free gifts only to faith. Only where there is trust and devotion will God’s fountains be opened. Only upon a life fully surrendered will He pour out His abundant blessings. Where there is failure, He can give restoration. All weakness can be overcome. New joy and hope can fill our hearts.” “Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?” (Ps 85:6).
