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.

Love This Viewpoint

This was not the typical signs, wonders, miraculous account of Azusa Street. This book, with its historical detail, looks into the behind scenes of this revival moment in time. I believe studying this insight helps us to gain a glimpse into the reality of the day to day human account and response to such an supernatural time.

I took away from studying the thoughts, deeds, and actions of this previous generations reaction to GODS movement in their midst. How in an era of racism, the true reviving love of GOD brings unity. But also, how the pride of man wanting to be elevated brings division. How a mature lover of GOD responds, placing first, 1 Corinthians 13 sacrificial love in place over opinions, wants, needs, oppose to the immature lovers of GOD who allowed greed, and selfishness breeding division ultimately bringing an end to this miraculous move of GOD on this earth.

A must read to learn from and cultivate a people mature enough to handle the next great move of GOD!

Reader was terrible

He ran together sentences throughout. No breaks most of the time, like he was in a great hurry to get through the reading.

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.

Very Real!

A steady review of the Azusa Street Revival. The use of newspaper articles and written accounts of the day is skillfully used to convey the very human intricacies of the movement. An enjoyable and informative piece, and a must for anyone hoping to play a part in stewarding revival.
