Scotland Ablaze, The Twenty Year Fire of Revival that Swept Scotland 1858 – 79 by Tom Lennie and published by Christian Focus Publications.
Many today may be discouraged by the condition of Christianity in Scotland, while unaware of its powerful legacy. Following on from Glory in the Glen and Land of Many Revivals, Scotland Ablaze continues Tom Lennie’s compelling historical series on Scottish revival movements. Lennie here focuses on the inspiring period from 1858–79 in which much of Scotland was spiritually awakened, affecting every Scottish county.
In three parts, Lennie guides us meticulously through the origins of the 1859–61 revival and each area affected, then goes on to chronicle a series of little–known revival after–waves that continued through the 1860s and early ‘70s, and finally the remarkable evangelistic campaign of Moody and Sankey, in which many have discerned the holy breath of authentic revival.
Through this deeply encouraging and fascinating read, may we not only see the power and impact of God’s work in our history, but may we excitedly anticipate His miraculous work in our future.
