GOD'S GENERALS FOR KIDS VOLUME 6: CHARLES PARHAM
This is the sixth volume in the very popular God’s Generals for Kids series by Roberts Liardon and Olly Goldenberg. These books are written for children in the eight-to-twelve age group. This book is about Charles Fox Parham who has been called “the father of Pentecost.”
Parham was an American preacher and evangelist who worked with William J. Seymour in the spread of Pentecostalism after the Azusa Street Revival. Parham associated speaking in tongues with the baptism in the Holy Spirit. He invited both African-Americans and Mexican-Americans to join his new movement.
Parham was frequently ill, but he experienced God’s healing power time after time. He believed greatly in God’s power to heal. He established a Bible school in Kansas, and God poured out the Holy Spirit upon the students there, and they began to speak in tongues. This experience gave the students fresh power to minister healing and salvation to others.
This book reveals how the modern-day Pentecostal movement began and how God can use children today.
There will be a total of twelve books in this series. The first five already-published books deal with the following evangelists: Kathryn Kuhlman, Smith Wigglesworth, Maria Woodworth-Etter, John Alexander Dowie, and Evan Roberts.
