The recounting of the story of revival on the Scottish Isle of Lewis in the late 1940's. It is a fascinating blend of history, biography and testimony. It includes the eye-witness accounts from Duncan Campbell and Mary Peckham.
Colin Peckham (1936-2009) was Principal of Faith Mission Bible College, Edinburgh. Mary Peckham (nee Morrison) (1932-2010) was born on the Isle-of-Lewis and was converted in the 1949 revival. She spent fourteen years in evangelistic ministry, seeing true revival on two occasions in her ministry, before marrying Colin in 1969. They are both survived by three adult children and two grandchildren.
The stories in this book are great both for the encouragement for faithfulness, and for the glimpse they offer into mid-twentieth century Scottish life. May it be an encouragement to evangelize and to wait upon God to do his work of revival!
This eye witness account of the revival in the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides from 1949-1952 is stirring stuff. Well worth reading just to catch the atmosphere of an island overwhelmed by the invasion of the Spirit of God. You will be deeply stirred by reading it and provoked to cry out to God to 'rend the heavens and come down' once again.
"By far the most authoritative account of one of the most famed of British revivals. It truly is another of those 'unputdownable' titles, and cannot fail to thrill and challenge the reader."
"...provides ringing affirmation that God is still on His throne and delights to make bare His mighty arm in revival when His people get serious with Him."
In a time of extreme apathy among Christian people, yet when talk about revival has become trendy, many Christians have no real concept of true God-sent revival. May this publication be used to provide a clearer understanding of revival and also create a longing that God, in His providence, may revive us again.
I cannot recall any book on revival that I have read that has given me greater pleasure, held my attention more, and incited my longing for a new visitation from God more than this one.
This is an awe-inspiring book. It must be, because it contains the testimonies of people converted in a time of revival.
