Product Description

They were preachers, missionaries, and teachers--many without any prior ministry experience. Ordinary men and women, they were the raw material of the Pentecostal movement. But shaped and tempered by the Holy Spirit, they became his instruments of Spirit infused vision and revival. Beleaguered by skeptics, handicapped by scarce resources, and troubled by their own human nature, they nevertheless persevered to a rallying point: The Assemblies of God.

These are their stories, stories of people rather than a denomination. Their names may be unfamiliar, but not the work they left behind. In fact, their commitment to the "new work" of the Lord formed the thrust of a spiritual renewal that circled the world, and continues to this day. From the beginning of the 20th Century to the beginning of the 21st, respected historian Gary B. McGee catalogues the triumphant journeys of these compelling, often amazing people as they sought to be, most of all, people of the Spirit.

Publisher's Description

This biographical approach to the history of the Assemblies of God is essential reading for every pastor and church member. Students and grandparents alike give rave reviews to this inspiring, well-written book. Who laid the foundation for what the Assemblies of God has become? They were preachers, missionaries, and teachers--ordinary men and women who were the raw material of the Pentecostal movement. Shaped and tempered by the Holy Spirit, they became His instruments of Spirit-infused vision and revival. These are their stories, stories of a people rather than a denomination. Attacked by skeptics, limited by scarce resources, and troubled by their own human nature, they overcame to create the Assemblies of God. Includes a CD-ROM with additional resource material.

Author Bio

Currently the Assemblies of God USA and Assemblies of God organizations around the world make up the world's largest Pentecostal denomination with some sixty-four million members and adherents.
