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, this concludes Tom Lennie’s compelling trilogy on Scottish revivals. Lennie focuses on the inspiring period from 1858–79 in which much of Scotland was evangelically awakened, affecting every Scottish county. Through this deeply encouraging and fascinating read, not only may we see the power and impact of God’s work in our history, but we may excitedly anticipate His miraculous work in our future.
A native of Orkney, Tom Lennie has long held a passionate interest in the history of Christian revivals worldwide. He has written many articles and reviews for journals, magazines and websites, and is the author of ‘Glory in the Glen’, ‘Land of Many Revivals’, and ‘Rousay Remembered’. His forthcoming study of late twentieth–century awakenings (1945–2000) will complete his four–volume series on Scotland’s remarkable revival legacy over five centuries.
Reading about God’s Spirit in action is always an encouragement. Tom Lennie delves into Scotland’s rich history and assesses the numerous accounts of revival that set people on fire for the gospel in the second half of the 19th century. These stories embolden us to live out our faith with the assurance that the same God is at work today. Read and be inspired!

The Living God is not done with revealing His revival glory to those who walk in repentance and faith, so it is also my prayer that this extraordinary book will not be read merely as an historical document, but that it will set hearts on fire for God and invigorate the people of God to seek Him once again for showers of blessing on a dry and thirsty land.

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!

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’!
