Publisher's Summary

In Azusa Street Mission and Revival, Cecil M. Robeck Jr. brings to bear expertise from decades of focused study in church history to reveal the captivating story of the Apostolic Faith Mission in Los Angeles, which became known as the Azusa Street Mission. From humble beginnings with few resources, this small, uniquely diverse, and inclusive congregation led by William J. Seymour ignited a fire that quickly grew into a blaze and spread across the world, giving rise to the global Pentecostal movement. Sifting through newspaper reports and other written accounts of the time as well as the mission's own publications, and through personal interaction with some of those blessed to stand very near to the fire that began at the mission, Cecil M. Robeck Jr. not only relates the historical significance of the revival but also captures the movement of the Holy Spirit that changed the face of modern Christianity.

God centered brings revival

Loved hearing of the trasformed hearts, which brought about action. Loved hearing of hearts changed for missions. Loved hearing about the empowerment of Holy Spirit. I listened at 150 speed and my interest was kept to the end. Great book.

Amazing history!

Would have loved if he would have dug a little deeper by getting familial stories because it seemed a little repeated I. The conversation about Seymour’s relationship with the woman that started Portland’s mission. Great history! Great book!

Historic

This book did not end like I anticipated it would. The ending really did surprise me. I will not spoil it for you; however, I think it is good for us living today to know this historic account. It certainly makes me stop and pray.
