Christian history is exploding with accounts of outpourings of Godís Spirit, yet for some they doubt that
revival is even possible. But one British author is challenging this doubt and trying to inspire faith for the
next Christian revival!
TV viewers may have seen Mathew Backholer on Christian TV around the world, but for the
last few years, heís been engrossed in accounts of revival and has visited numerous sites of revival to deepen
his knowledge and understanding of these moves of God.
"Itís a tragedy that some Christians feel that God is not able to impact the West in the 21st century," said Mathew
Backholer. "People feel like this because they are unaware of our history of Christian revivals and outpourings.
"God has transformed our nations before and if believers know about these moves of God, and understand the biblical
promises, a new wave of faith can hit the Church."
Thatís why Mathew has compiled many accounts of revivals and the principles of the revivalists in several books
about Christian revivals. "I want the revivalists themselves to speak through these books," said Mathew. "Thatís why I have
compiled the most interesting accounts and quotes from the revivalists, so we can learn from their experiences and grow
in faith as we believe God for revival today."
After reading about people collapsing under conviction of sin outside of a church in Scotland, or learning how
the Welsh revival changed a nation, or being inspired by John Wesley seeing England transformed, or finding how God
swept across America, readers cannot fail to be inspired.
"I pray every believer will grasp what God has done in past revivals," said Mathew, "It will give them zeal to
believe that God will send many more great revivals!"
