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.
IF you are really looking to get a glimpse of what Our Father can do thru a person; this book is an excellent example. Put your name where there names are : for with GOD nothing shall be impossible.
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.
