In the article, entitled “Ready for Revival,” Touhey give a short history of revivals and then details eight distinguishing characteristics of a healthy church.
He concludes by saying, “Today, we wait and pray for revival, the supernatural working of God as He sovereignly chooses. But as individuals, as churches, we can prepare for revival. We can be sure we are who God commands us to be. Healthy churches are churches that are ready for revival. A healthy church is ready to respond when the Spirit of God moves . . . .”
