The outpouring of the Spirit on some Anglo-Chinese School students in 1972 was the beginning of the charismatic movement in Singapore. It was arguably an unexpected and inexpressible gift from God to the newly independent nation. The details were however largely blurred, ignored, or forgotten by the close of that decade. What happened became part of the suppressed memory in Singapore's church history. This book, drawn largely from the testimonies of the key participants, aims to redress this neglect. CSCA publishes this revised and expanded edition to mark the 40th anniversary of the event, which many refer to as "the Clock Tower Revival."

"Father here I am. I just want to be the channel that you can use to ignite the revival that will not only spread across Singapore but will spread out to the rest of the world. And the world will come to know the glory, the majesty and the power of your name. And the free flow of your Holy Spirit will demonstrate to the world the power of a living Christ. Thank you, Father; thank you, Father; thank you, Father."

– Hugh Baker, Singapore Evangelism Centre, 1970s
