Overview

The forgotten heroes of revival described here were men of passion. Their deep love for Jesus Christ and for the souls of their listeners enabled them to stand strong through the storms of persecution and to preach a message that didn't only address the mind with truth, but reached into the hearts of their hearers. As they proclaimed the Word of Life, it shook their congregations—it stirred them—and many were saved! Read about:

  • James Rouquet, a young vicar in Cornwall, catalyzed out of his careless lifestyle by a dream in which he was to be summoned before the judgment seat of Christ;
  • George Thomson, a friend of John Wesley, who exercised a remarkable ministry of compassion among prisoners;
  • Captain Jonathan Scott, a military officer whose life was characterized by dissipation and vice until his conversion and whose life subsequently made a great impact on his fellow soldiers and then, later, in civilian circles;
  • David Simpson, who, even as a boy, felt compelled by a voice from heaven to be instructed for the ministry, and whose evangelical preaching cut powerfully through the social ills of his day, bringing conviction and conversion;
  • Thomas Pentycross, a bright pupil who made rapid progress at school, a gifted actor and orator, who, after his conversion, had a long and controversial ministry in preaching and in establishing a church school.
