The stories around the Lewis Revival 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, and is every bit as exciting as the myths it displaces.
A native of Orkney, Tom Lennie serves as Executive Editor of Prophecy Today UK. With a longstanding fascination with revival history, he is the author of ‘Glory in the Glen’, ‘Land of Many Revivals’, and ‘Scotland Ablaze’.
This book contains careful research, fascinating history and, above all, a wonderful reminder of the mighty works done by God in the Outer Hebrides.
