Product Description:

Most of this material appeared first in several earlier publications by this author, most of it in a larger book - "Early Evangelical Revivals in Australia" - which included information about all the states of Australia except Western Australia and the Northern Territory. This material about South Australia has now been produced in a smaller book, to make this history more easily known, and to encourage Christians to pray for revival in our churches today. Recently appointed Field Directors of the Australian Prayer Network are seeking to introduce as many Christians as possible to this need, and offer encouragement to offer deeply concerned intercessory prayer for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit - in explicit agreement together, though they may be widely scattered - and unified in their desire. Extraordinary prayer for the revival of religion and the transformation of Australian culture is needed, and for the advancement of Christ's Kingdom on earth. Occasional prayer is not enough, nor is it enough to pray for revival as one small item on a long list, as if it was relatively important.

The author is a retired Uniting Church minister who has written extensively on the history of Australian and New Zealand Evangelism and early revivals.
