Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Donald James Parker
When Lester Sumrall died, the link to an era passed from the Earth. In his years of ministering as a young man, despite the lack of travel technology which has reduced the size of our planet, Sumrall seems to have had the privilege of not only meeting but also working with all of movers and shakers involved in the Pentecostal movement in the early 20th century. He tells of those encounters in this book. Good faith building material!

Meet the Author

Dr. Lester Sumrall was a pastor, evangelist, and missionary statesman. He is considered one of the great 20th century ministers of the gospel. The vast wealth of topics in his writings range from the basics of Christianity--salvation, faith, healing, love, the miracles of Jesus and the Holy Spirit--to the more complicated and sometimes controversial topics of demons, deliverance, the dispensations, prosperity and immortality. Dr. Sumrall's deep conviction for the truth has made his writings relevant for every generation.

Early in his ministry Lester preached mainly in the southeastern United States, his first sermon being in a little country school house just fifty miles from home. Really, the main reason he preached during those early years was to keep from dying. But eighteen months after leaving home God dramatically changed both his heart and ministry.

One evening at a church in the Tennessee countryside Lester had a second vision. Suddenly becoming unaware of his surroundings, Lester saw before him the people of the world. They were wearing their native clothing and were of every shade of humanity. The people were walking down a long and wide highway, one that ended abruptly at a precipice towering above a bottomless inferno. In Lester's own words: "As they neared the pit and saw the fate that awaited them, I could see their desperate but vain struggle to push back against the unrelenting pressure of those to the rear. The great surging river of humanity swept them ever forward. God opened my ears to hear the screams of damned souls sinking into hell . . . their hands flailed wildly clawing at the air."

It was then that God spoke. "You are responsible for these who are lost." "No, not me, Lord," Lester replied. "I do not know these people. I have never been to Japan, or China, or India; I am not to blame." Quoting Ezekiel 3:18, God assured him that he would be held accountable. When the vision was over he realized that the church service had ended and everyone had left. But Lester's heart would be changed forever. Having a newfound love for the lost, it became his mission to preach the gospel message to the nations of the world. He went to many countries as a missionary, even recognizing some of the faces he saw in the vision.
