Endorsements for Jesus Now Awakening
I agree with Tom Phillips. God is indeed moving today. In so many places, people are responding to Him. We should be encouraged and ask God how we can be involved.
In two simple but profound words, Tom has captured the heart and hope of God for our day ...... JESUS NOW! Today's fresh stirrings of Awakening as captured in this timely work are all about intimacy with the historical and contemporary person of Jesus. And it's the urgency of now that makes our pleadings for Awakening personal and practical as illustrated in the powerful stories Tom has chronicled for us. Read it and reap great blessings as the Spirit enlists your heart into all He is up to in our day.
Tom Phillips warmly and transparently invites us to seek Jesus for how we might be involved in burgeoning re-awakening with Jesus Now—from a personal level of revival to a corporate level of spiritual outpouring—offering “Spirit Empowered Faith” lessons along the way to guide the reader into deeper relationship with Jesus and greater understanding of his or her role in revival. And we all can have a role!

Jesus Now is timely and dynamic and moved my heart deeply. Hunger and thirst for personal and corporate revival drips from every page and echoes the heart-cry of so many who are interceding for revival in the church today. Jesus Now should be put in the hands of every church leader in North America.
Tom Phillips has been a friend and a collaborator of mine in evangelism and revival for over twenty-five years. Jesus Now is his mirror-image.

But be careful, engaging with God at this level may just change who you are and take you to a deeper relationship with Him.
In today’s world, many people feel discouraged, fearful, and oppressed. In this powerful book full of revelation, Tom Phillips inspires Christ-followers to have hope.

Tom Phillips gives us that hope powerfully in his new book, Jesus Now. Your prayers for revival will arise on fresh wings of hope after reading this book.
“The Kingdom of God is not going to arrive on Air Force One” said Chuck Colson. Politicians are not going to save America. Wall Street is not going to save America. If America is to be saved, Tom Phillip's new book, Jesus Now, points to the cure: Jesus. Jesus Now reinforces Fyodor Dostoevsky's insight, "The West has lost Christ, and that is why it is dying; that is the only reason".
America’s spiritual history has included significant tides of spiritual awakening that influenced entire generations for Christ. Over and over again, God has rescued us when we have united together in prayer. Following the low spiritual tide of the last few decades, America is once again poised to see an inrushing of God’s presence that will drive away darkness and despair. Dr. Phillips new book, Jesus Now, charts a course for your involvement in this new awakening. Together we can see America’s spiritual tide rise again!
Today in America we see two countervailing trends. The one leads to the moral abyss of drugs, immorality, violence, and death. The second leads to hope, renewal, caring, and life. Clearly God is at work among a needy people bringing men and women into a vital relationship with His Son. The author Tom Phillips (BGEA vice president of Billy Graham Library and no relation to me) gives documented evidence on the reason for this in Jesus Now.
