This work, based on a challenge from God found in Zechariah 10, challenges the church to press through spiritual lethargy and move into an arena of spiritual power. The modern church, particularly the American church, in spite of improved methodology and the emergence of the "megachurch," had been losing ground over the last few decades. Numerical loss, financial loss, and worst of all, spiritual loss, has been the bane of the American church and must be addressed. The author contends that while we must maintain excellence in every area of ministry, to continue the current track of ignoring the powerful spiritual dynamic of the presence of the Holy Spirit-in both our lives and our corporate worship settings-will hasten our demise. The answer, found in the call from heaven through Zechariah, is for both individuals and the church to earnestly call out to God for MORE of His glory. more
