Bishop Robert Solomon’s book offers a concise and highly readable introduction to the nature and theology of revival. Bishop Solomon is keenly aware of the concerns of ordinary church-goers over the baffling aspects of revivals. He anticipates some of their frequently asked questions and addresses them with pastoral sensitivity. I recommend it especially to anyone seeking spiritual guidance in discerning between genuine and questionable revivals.

SIMON CHAN (Earnest Lau Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Theological College, Singapore)

The sacred topic of revival has suffered from bad press recently through controversies of what constitutes a legitimate revival. This book addresses this need by combining careful scholarship with biblical evidence and by illustrating the principles gleaned with inspiring stories of Asian revivals. I am motivated afresh to pray yearningly for revival.

AJITH FERNANDO (Teaching Director, Youth for Christ Sri Lanka)

The Methodist Bishop has spanned denominations, continents, time, and academic disciplines to provide a lucid and literary foray into the complex topic of Christian revival. His discussion of intercontinental connections of revivals in the early 20th century is illuminating for our contemporary church which is too often bound by cultural and regional limitations. I commend this to church leaders in both Asia and the West.
