Meet the Author

Roberts Liardon is an author, public speaker, spiritual leader, church historian, and humanitarian. He was called into the ministry at a very young age, preaching his first public sermon at the age of thirteen and lecturing in Christian colleges and universities at age fifteen.At sixteen, Roberts launched a radio program, and at seventeen, he wrote his first book, I Saw Heaven, which sold 1.5 million copies. His next book and video series, God's Generals, established Roberts as a leading Protestant church historian, and both books brought him international attention.In his mid-twenties, Roberts built one of the fastest growing churches in the US, and established his first accredited Bible college. From this ministry, he founded more than forty churches, built five international Bible colleges, and assisted the poor and needy in his community, throughout America, and around the globe. Recently, Roberts launched a new TV show called God's Generals with Roberts Liardon, which currently airs in more than two hundred countries.Roberts had the privilege of being mentored by Oral Roberts and Lester Sumrall, and now he is under the covering of both Dr. Che Ahn of Harvest International Ministry and Pastor Colin Dye of Kensington Temple, London, England. As a recognized church historian specializing in the Pentecostal and charismatic movements, he is much in demand as a speaker, writer, and mentor. His voice speaks to a current generation of believers who want to draw closer to the heart and mind of God and impact their communities and the nations of the world through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    What a blessing!

    I was both blessed and challenged by reading the biographies of some of the early leaders, both men and women, of the charismatic movement. Although I do not agree with all the theology presented and all of the author's comments, I was challenged to consider what the call of God is on my life and to obey Him, no matter what the cost. A must-read, no matter what your theological stance is.

    It has not always been the way it is now

    We have the tendency to understand the past with our current experiences. Not being aware of the depth of the strength and courage our Christian forefathers were provided for, by faith, from The Lord God. The documents reveal a great deal of truth that for whatever reasons people are too silent reducing the benefits all creation could receive. I personally glorify The Lord God,through Jesus Christ, for providing this book for us to better understand the past.
