Additional Information

This contains two books in one; both written by eyewitnesses to the Welsh Revival of 1904. The first is: The Awakening In Wales And Some Of The Hidden Springs, by Jessie Penn-Lewis.

Book Two is: The Religious Revival in Wales 1904, by Awstin and other special correspondents of the Western Mail (newspaper), London.

This is a reporter's commentary of some of the events that took place in the revival in Wales in 1904. Note that the reporter then was putting it in an honest and positive light. (Probably something that wouldn't be done today). While his coverage only spans a few weeks, the details are striking and almost takes you there. He is not to detailed but provides good description of the happenings in some of the services. He follows Evan Roberts much of the time but also focuses on other services. This is a good read if you want to find out what actually went on during this revival that swept not only Wales but the whole world. The only problem I had was that the hymns that were entered into the book that were sung are in Welsh so obviously I had little or no idea what was said but the commentary has been written in very clear English.
One repetitive generalized paragraph after another --- people gathered in the evenings to hear preaching and responded with repentance and praise toward God --- without any colorful details. Chronological account. Boring! I wanted followup about individuals mentioned, locale alluded to, and lasting results. Was told none of that. I was even guessing that the folk were miners, so little was made of that fact. The spontaneous group singing was mentioned (repeatedly), but could you just please give me the name of a hymn they sung? Some lyrics maybe? Any scriptures hit hearts particularly hard? Perhaps I could relate. The reasons for these "rallys" beginning was vague other than a female trio would begin singing, folks would join in, the preacher (usually the same fellow) would show up later and the crowds would swell and sing until late in the night. A good time was had by all, but this technique would not raise a crowd today and certainly does not explain the beginnings of the... Read more
I believe that the gist of this book is based on earlier Welsh revivals. Unfortunately, even though the Welsh revivals are historical, and the information factual, the writing is so dated that this book is difficult to read today.

God really did work in those revivals, but this book badly needs to be rewritten by a British? Evangelical in a simpler, more compact, and entertaining form.
