Primitive Piety Revived
Or, the Aggressive Power of the Christian Church
A book originally subtitled, The Aggressive Power of the Christian Church. And what power did author Henry Fish have in mind with this title? The power of a life with simplicity of purpose; the power of a life consecrated to God; and the power of a life of self-denial, Biblical faith, and earnestness, among other points.
This is a unique book for our times, last published in the 19th century.
“I seriously urge you to read and study this valuable volume.”
— Ernest Reisinger, retired pastor of First Baptist Church, North Pompano Beach, Florida and author of Carnal Christians?
