Revival, Truth, and Persecution: An interview with Eugene Bach

I was completely caught off guard to learn this aspect of Roman and European culture prior to the days of revival. I was totally unaware that homosexuality was in fact more accepted during the days of Paul than it is today, not the other way around.

When Paul went to Rome, he was facing sexual practices that were not only instituted at the highest levels of power but were deified. He addressed it in his letters to the early church. When I learned this information, it made his words in Scripture take on completely new meaning.

This dark hole of history went even deeper. This information blew my modern ideas about homosexuality out of the water and challenged me to my core.

I share in more detail about what I found on Day 34 of the Chasing Revival study. Is there anything else that you would like to tell our readers about Chasing Revival?

Eugene Bach: There are several good Bible studies out there today, but Chasing Revival is different in the way it explores reals questions and does not spoon-feed easy answers to the reader. It is written with the belief that disagreement can lead to the best deep dive studies. We ask difficult theological questions and are not afraid to start heated disagreements in finding the answers.

The study was not done systematically. We asked question regarding revival and searched through history for the answers. Some sections are longer and some sections are shorter. We did not try to shorten chapters to fit a predetermined word count and we did not shy away from brevity when a lengthy answer was not needed.

Chasing Revival will most likely not be a best seller, but it was a labor of love to the study of revival that we very much needed for our own answers for Back to Jerusalem. Please tell our readers where they can purchase this resource.

Eugene Bach: The 61 Day Devotional can be purchased separately, or the entire study including the devotional, work book, and 9 part video series for small Bible study groups can be purchased only at:
