Can we equate the 1904-05 Revival with the activity of Evan Roberts? Was it a phenomenon limited to South Wales and only to the end of 1905? Is the criticism that there was a lack of preaching justifiable? What is known about leaders like Joseph Jenkins, Seth Joshua and R. B. Jones, and scores of lesser-known teachers and evangelists? What about similar outpourings of God's Spirit in England, Scotland and Ireland, and their Welsh connection? What was the Revival's impact on social matters, politics, education, religion and theology? Are the criticisms of it, both liberal and orthodox---and the present evangelical assessments---justifiable? What was the Revival's teaching on the Holy Spirit and the Second Coming, and to what extent was this influenced by Keswick and straying from the traditional Welsh Calvinistic stance? These are some of the questions dealt with in this well-documented book with its much fuller picture of this remarkable work of God than is found in most books about the Revival in English.
"A comprehensive account, with sensitive evaluation of a fascinating and enigmatic revival."
-Dr. Eifion Evans (author of The Welsh Revival of 1904)
"Dr. Gibbard presents a full, necessary and balanced picture of this revival in which literally hundreds, not just one man, were caught up as instruments of God's awakening and convicting purposes."
-Dr. John Aaron
