from church leaders for
South Africa's Forgotten Revival . . .
'I enjoyed reading this book. It is well-written and keeps the reader's interest throughout. In my view, it will appeal to a wide audience, especially those interested in revivals, prayer and missions. While the book is written in a popular style, it gives evidence of good research and a responsible engagement with the sources. I found the book very interesting and learnt a lot from Olea Nel’s research. I am sure that others will have a similar experience'.
Dr. Robert Vosloo, Senior lecturer in Systematic Theology and Church History, Faculty of Theology, Stellenbosch University.
'While reading this highly informative and spiritually uplifting book, I’ve come to wonder why such an important and momentous happening in the history of a large church and even a country did not receive more attention before. Indeed, there were some smaller publications in the distant past, but nothing that did justice to a revival that shaped and influenced the history of a church and country.
Being a church historian myself and a South African by birth, I can testify to the fact that the 1860 revival in South Africa left a positive heritage – the fruit of which is obvious even to this day.
