The wonderful album by M83, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, is only $3.99 as of today (22 tracks!). The first two videos from the album are intense visions about children with powers in dystopian society. Watch the first two videos in order: "Midnight City" and "Reunion." Pretty cool.
Here's a list of books I own on revival that I'll be using in one way or another for my current sermon series Revival: Longing for a Surprising Work of God.
I tried to list them in the order of how much I expect to use (or depend on) each one for this series. I'm referencing a number of other things as well (articles, audio, websites) but this list is for books alone.
UPDATE 2.8.11: I added some new books at the bottom, and a few comments in parentheses where I have something to say, so far.
