Overview


Blind in one eye yet in possession of remarkable vision, William Seymour was a man few believers are aware of. The son of ex-slaves but a passionate believer of racial integration, Seymour led the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles in 1906, credited for launching the twentieth-century American Pentecostal movement and several denominations.

In this fresh and honest biography, Craig Borlase captures the intriguing story of Seymour, recognized by Yale University as “the most influential black leader in American religious history.” Taking in the best as well as the worst of life a century ago, Seymour lived his life with consistency, sacrifice, and commitment.

William Seymour: A Biography is a tale of faith through adversity, of life for the black community in the century between Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr., and of the transforming power of God’s Spirit. It charts one man’s dedication to pursue a closer relationship with God and a more potent revelation of Christ.

Combining great revivals of the past, emergent civil rights, and the struggles in the aftermath of the Civil War, Seymour’s life story will inspire Christians to believe the church has a future.
