The 20th century was a century of evil and blood shed. It has been said that it was the century of the devil

The 20th century was a century of evil and blood shed. It has been said that it was the century of the devil. There were two world wars, many smaller wars, ethnic cleanings in European nations, death and property destruction by race riots in America, an attempt to exterminate an entire race of people by Hitler, and much, much more evil. No doubt about it, the century we just left was a nightmare. But one must remember that God was not asleep during the 20th century. He raised up a standard against the satanic onslaught of the 20th century.

Characteristics of Revivals Historian Richard Riss has written books on revival including A Survey of 20th-Century Revival Movements in North America (Peabody, 1988) and Images of Revival (Revival Press, 1997)

A Survey of 20th-Century Revival Movements in North America. This book surveys revivals, especially in the last 300 years, with many brief, first person reports. I taught on renewal and revival in Bible Colleges in the South Pacific and in colleges in Brisbane, Australia. Bounding across the vivid green ridges and gorges of Papua New Guinea's highlands, I found a gem in Meg, my wonderful wife, now in heaven. We were both Australian missionaries and brought our first child home to our bamboo and grass house in the majestic highlands.

A Survey of 20th-Century Revival Movements in North America attempts to set the record straight. It offers a concise and useful survey of the major currents of revival that have swept over this continent since the turn of the century. As the final decade of this century approaches it is appropriate that historian Richard Riss chart the course of twentieth-century revival on this continent and record the people, places, and events that have shaped the modern American church.Names like William J. Seymour or Maria B. Woodworth-Etter; places like Azusa Street or North Battleford, Saskatchewan; and events like the forest Home Briefing Conference or the Latter Rain Revival might not be as familiar as Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, or the Jesus movement, but each has played a significant role in keeping the streams of revival flowing.The impact of these often lesser-known figures and events is tremendous. For example, William J. Seymour was a key figure in early Pentecostalism, which has become one of the most rapidly growing segments of modern Christianity. Also, college awakenings at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, North Park College, and Wheaton College in late 1949 and early 1950 received nationwide press coverage and sparked college revivals throughout the country. A decade later, in 1960, Dennis Bennett's experience of the Holy Spirit in Van Nuys, California, would mark the beginning of a tremendous outpouring of the Spirit, and for many, came to represent the start of the charismatic renewal movement.
