What are your top/favorite books on the history of revivals? Globally, not specifically tied to the US? (Outside of Acts preferably :-))

Brandon, define, narrow down, the meaning of revival.

most CoG pastors say that the last revival was one of the greatest and __________ did the best preaching they had heard.

Charles, I’d prefer the term ‘awakening’ but there are relatively few movements labeled that, especially outside the US that I’m aware of.

God’s Generals is good if you’re looking at 20 century Pentecostal revivals AND IF you dont mind the author Peter A Vandever is a good source too on modern day Kansas, iHop, Pensacola, etc.

Tom Steele [01/26/2016 5:48 PM]
There is a book very similar to “God’s Generals” called “Quest For Revival” by Ron McIntosh. I have read both. In the case of “God’s Generals” I don’t mind the book, despite the author, as it is a historical compilation.

My good friend Eddie Hyatt has the best book on revival history. It is called 2000 years of Charismatic Christianity.

John Ruffle [01/26/2016 6:03 PM]
Book of Acts.

David Willaim Faupel also does a great job, much more thorough than just revivals http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/the-everlasting-gospel-the-significance-of-eschatology-in-the-development/
