Penn-Lewis was well-acquainted with the revival, and with its leader,
Evan Roberts. The Awakening In Wales is her clear and concise history of
the events of that time remains a treasure for all those who pray for
revival to return in our day.
Watchman Nee called it the "greatest known
revival in church history." On October 31, 1904, Evan Roberts, a
twenty-six-year-old former miner, returned home from a ministry training
program, having quit at the urging of the Holy Spirit. That night, he
joined sixteen other young people at a village chapel, and from that
humble origin sprang a spiritual revival that roared across the hills
and valleys of Wales. Thousands of souls were welcomed into God's
kingdom. Even the press could not ignore the changes occurring and
eagerly reported on Roberts' every move.
As suddenly as he had appeared, Roberts vanished
from the world stage, only to reemerge twenty years later. What
happened? How did God work so miraculously?
