Harrell has written what appears to be the standard reference work on the healing revivals of the 1940s and 1950s. His account tells a story of William Branham and Oral Roberts as the early giants of the movement, followed by literally hundreds of revivalists in the 1950s with thousands of miracle stories leading to the significant growth of Pentecostal movement worldwide. He includes objective and balanced descriptions of the triumphs, challenges, abuses and shortcoming of the movement and all its major players. He depicts the discord between the independent revivalists and the established denominations; the progress from humility to self-exaltation in its leaders; and the eventual denunciation of the movement by its initiators. Along the way we get clear short biographies on Jack Coe, A.A. Allen, T.L. Osborn, O.L. Jaggers, Gordon Lindsay, William Freeman and others. The reader is left assuming that there was some real move of God, but that the line between and the work of the Spirit and the efforts of prideful men has is painfully blurred.

Harrell is clearly knowledgeable on the history of the revival. His work relies of primary materials (i.e. evangelists’ newsletters and magazines) and direct testimony/interviews adding credence to his accounts. Personally, the history of this movement is helpful to see where the present day “Prosperity movement” and “Word of faith” movements have come from. And while I completely reject these unfortunately enduring ideologies, I’m a bit more cautious and thoughtful in my critique, having now learned some of the backstory.

I enjoyed the book. It was a positive blast from the past. The book contains detail information on a number of ministries related to the tent revivalist of the 20th century. If you are interested in the major ministries of this era, such as Oral Roberts, William Branham, A.A. Allen and Jack Coe. This book will be interesting. The author does not confirm any activities or claims by the ministries. This is not a book to persuade you of any form of doctrine or belief. It's a good view of the history of the tent revivalists in America from around 1900 to about 1975.

I read this book 10 years ago and found it be a gem. Having my own spiritual roots in "Pentecostalism," I felt that by taking direct quotes and doctrinal assumptions from the very leaders of the Healing and Charismatic Revivals, Mr. Harrell reported as objectively and concisely as any historian could. I also appreciated the aspect that one is able to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses, the upsurge and the downfall of those movements, not by the opinions of some outsider, but by simply watching the dramatic events unfold.

If you were like me, you will walk away feeling as though you lived in the era written about and that you now have a better understanding of some of the Pentecostal/Charismatic practices in our day.

This is also an important book for anyone who wants to study on the life and the death of revival, for indeed, this is exactly what Mr. Harrell shows us.

Excellent read!

Great book esp. when you consider Harrell's background. I thought that he was a fair as possible with a view of Christianity in which I consider almost cultic.

Very well written a very good book delivered on time thanks John F. Rand
FABULOUS! This is the best book I've read on the Great Healing Revival. It is both inspirational and motivational. It stirred my hunger for the reality of Christ. The issues of the ups-and-downs of the individual ministries were very informational also. Everyone who feels or has been called or ordained to evangelize or do missionary work should read this book.
