WILLIAM J SEYMOUR
William J. Seymour was a deeply spiritual man who impressed everyone who met him.
"I do not believe that any man in modern times had a more wonderful deluge of God in his life than God gave that dear fellow, and the glory and power of a real Pentecost swept the world." - John G. Lake
". . . the meekest man I ever met." - William Durham
Seymour was an effective leader, writer, teacher, and revivalist. His spiritual impact continues to be felt around the world today. His early work has opened the door to millions of people finding the fullness of the Holy Spirit since the Auzasa Street Revival, which both "Life" magazine and "USA Today" have listed as being one of the top 100 nation-impacting events of the 20th century.
This book is more than the life story of William J. Seymour. It examines the historical context and sources that shaped Seymour's theology by following his life from Louisiana to Azusa Street, provides us with his original sermons, analyses of his teachings, and the complete and original version of Seymour's only book, Doctrine and Disciplines of the Apostolic Faith Mission of Los Angeles, originally published in 1915.
William J. Seymour, the pioneer and messenger of Azusa Street, continues to speak to our hearts today with messages that are as timely now as when he first uttered them. His confident and steady voice calls us to holiness, repentance, faith, and racial reconciliation.
