MANY STILL LACK THE FIRE: by Vance Havner

Dr. Vance Havner was a revivalist. He authored nearly forty books during his ministry. His unique style has impacted thousands of God's people through the years.

Billy Graham once said, "I do not know of any man in my generation who has stirred revival fires in the hearts of so many people throughout the nation as has Vance Havner..."
