Richard is both fervently pro–revival and utterly sane. Best of all, it’s a book on revival with the gospel at the heart of it.
Dale Ralph Davis, Respected Author and Old Testament Scholar
Simple, yet profound … A book to read, and read again.
Susie Leafe, Director of Reform, Sheffield, and Member of the General Synod of the Church of England
May this book provide a fresh impulse for Christians worldwide to pray for revival in our gospel–starved communities.
John Woodbridge, Research Professor of Church History and Thought, Trinity International University, Deerfield, Illinois
... mixes history, truth and heart-warming stories to clear our heads and excite our hearts about revival. A great introduction to the subject which should whet your appetite for more.
Hugh Palmer, Rector, All Souls Langham Place, London
Richard takes us to the heart of true revival ... stirs us to prayer ... warns us against false manifestations ... encourages us with wonderful, untold stories of the Lord's work around the world.
Alasdair Paine, Vicar of St. Andrew the Great, Cambridge and a trustee of Keswick Ministries.
Born out of the family's experience of the East African Revival and passionate about seeing such refreshment and renewal again, Richard Bewes tells the story of God's sovereign work in bringing revival across nations and down the ages. Richard's wealth of biblical wisdom and warmth caused me to plead: "Do it again, Lord, and start with me!" Do read this book and pray for times of refreshing, renewal and, please God, Revival!
Simon Vibert, Vicar, Christ Church, Virginia Water, Surrey
Richard has ransacked the Bible and the nations to provide us with a bird's-eye (and at times, ring-side) view of those remarkable periods when we glimpse the powers of the coming age as the Lord Almighty works in concentrated spiritual revival.
