Many today may be discouraged by the condition of Christianity in Scotland, while unaware of its powerful legacy. 

Following on from Glory in the Glen and Land of Many Revivals, Scotland Ablaze continues Tom Lennie’s compelling historical series on Scottish revival movements. Lennie here focuses on the inspiring period from 1858–79 in which much of Scotland was spiritually awakened, affecting every Scottish county.

In three parts, Lennie guides us meticulously through the origins of the 1859–61 revival and each area affected, then goes on to chronicle a series of little–known revival after–waves that continued through the 1860s and early ‘70s, and finally the remarkable evangelistic campaign of Moody and Sankey, in which many have discerned the holy breath of authentic revival. 

Through this deeply encouraging and fascinating read, may we not only see the power and impact of God’s work in our history, but may we excitedly anticipate His miraculous work in our future.

On reading this book, on the back of his two earlier volumes, I am left with a deep impression of the overwhelming vastness of the grace, mercy and favour of God towards our land in times past; but also with a deep sense of sadness at the way in which, as a nation and as churches within it, we have squandered and neglected these abundant mercies. Lord, have mercy upon us!

Hector Morrison, Principal, Highland Theological College, Dingwall

What I love about Tom’s writing is the scholarly research that he puts into them, and yet he has an ability to relay that material so that it becomes a story that you want to read … and keep reading. … My prayer is that through reading this book, many will say ‘I am waiting and longing for Scotland to be Ablaze again with revival fires’!

Gordon Pettie, CEO Revelation TV & Author of ‘Do It Again, Lord’, ‘Hey Howie’ and ‘Not If, But When’
