Revival history expert sorts fact from myth in the story of one of the best known revivals

Scotland has played host to a vast array of religious revivals over the course of its history, but by far the best known of these is the Lewis Revival of 1949–52 (also known as the Hebrides revival). The stories around it are extraordinary, with the Spirit working in the lives of many people across this Scottish island.


There have been, however, rumours and myths that have grown up around the stories of the Lewis Revival, that did not actually occur. Revival history expert, Tom Lennie, examines the eye witness accounts and sorts the amazing true story from the exaggerations that have become entangled.


The story of the revival that truly occurred is based on overwhelming evidence. Its essence was powerful preaching, based on God’s word. It was a remarkable, life changing event for hundreds of individuals, and that still has an impact today.

The beautiful thing that comes from Tom Lennie’s book is that, although some of the well–known stories may not have been entirely factual, many of them were true indeed! I was left being greatly edified and encouraged.
