A historically well-documented account of a work of God among children. Young people were meeting with God, there were personal encounters with Christ... rascals were transformed [and] children were gathering for prayer.
... an amazing account of accurate and valuable investigation and research. I have wept as I have read, praying that God would again send such an outpouring of his spirit.

...these youngsters of Scotland heard God's call and responded in obedience and faith. Children in Revival shows what God can do when we heed the Master's words and 'suffer the little ones to come.

'We read of children brought to Christ, ... the dramatic changes of life that followed and the impact such conversions had on parents and communities. It is humbling to read of God's work in this way.'
