Eifion Evans Story of the 1859 Revival in Wales (1959), The Welsh Revival of 1904 (1969), Revivals: Their Rise, Progress and Achievements (1961).

Author Eifion Evans is a retired minister of the Presbyterian Church of Wales, living in Carmarthenshire. He is the author of a number of books on the subject of revival, including: Revival Comes to Wales: The Story of the 1859 Revival in Wales (1959), The Welsh Revival of 1904 (1969), Revivals: Their Rise, Progress and Achievements (1961), and Two Welsh Revivalists (1985). He lives in Llanelli, Wales, and continues to study and write on the subject of revival. Save on 'Eifion Evans' books.

The 1904–1905 Welsh Revival was the largest Christian revival in Wales during the 20th century. It was one of the most dramatic in terms of its effect on the population, and triggered revivals in several other countries. The movement kept the churches of Wales filled for many years to come, seats being placed in the aisles in Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Swansea for twenty years or so, for example.

Evan Roberts was the human instrument, but there was very little preaching.

He has truly been led by the Spirit of God in preparing it. To his emphasis for the need of a Holy Spirit revival I can give the heartiest amen. What I saw of revival in Korea and in China is in fullest accord with the revival called for in this book. It is most timely that Mr. Smith has called attention to man effort and man method in modern revival. Evan Roberts was the human instrument, but there was very little preaching. Singing, testimony, and prayer, were the chief features. There were no hymn books; they had learnt the hymns in childhood. No choir, for everybody sang.

Evan Roberts Preaching During The Welsh Revival. The Welsh revival has been described not an isolated religious movement but as very much a part of Britain's modernisation. The Church was again full with people professing their faith in Jesus; but perhaps the most dramatic turn was when one of the crowd announced, "Another meeting like this will be held here tomorrow nigh. ; that meeting was again well attended and went on until the early hours of the morning. The revival began in late 1904 under the leadership of Evan Roberts (1878–1951), a 26-year-old former collier and minister in training.

I was never a big fan of Spurgeon, but his writings, like this book are growing on me. All of Grace explained much of how the Christian faith works. Spurgeon walks step-by-step how God calls us to Himself, points out where we have disobeyed Him (sin), and how God provides a way to restore that broken relationship. All of Grace fills in so many gaps that we often gloss over in today's theological presentations.

Spurgeon's text is actually a great vaccine against today's man-centered theology. He reminds us that we do not rely on feelings or anything but the word of God for our motivation. He reminds us that God not only provides the way to salvation (through repentance for our sin and acceptance that Jesus paid the price for sin in our place), but also continues changing us to be less like our selfish, emotional selves and more like Christ.

The language is plain, but the style may take some getting used to, but All of Grace should be near the top of everyone's reading list soon.
The title of chapter three is 'God Justifies The Ungodly'.Spurgeon wonders if some are surprised at that statement.Romans 4:5a says that very thing-'To him that works not,but believes on him that justifies the ungodly...'.The grace of God is not for the righteous(that is those who are righteous in their own sight).God's salvation is not for those who are pure and holy,but it is for those who are ungodly(they are aware of their sinful condition and know that they need a Savior or they will perish).The beginning of God's saving work,in an individual's consciousness,makes them aware they are unclean before a holy God and they need to rescued from that state.

The God of the Bible justifies the ungodly but he does not leave them in that condition-"If,however,you are troubled about the power of sin...and about the tendencies of your nature... ". The 19th Century Minister of the Gospel points those who are troubled about their sinful nature to 'The Promise Of God' in Ezekiel 36:26a-'A new heart also will I give you,and a new spirit I will put within you.' When God saves a person they now have both the desire and the ability(God helping them by His Spirit)to walk in God's ways(not perfectly but purposefully).When they sin or fall short of God's standard of what is right,there is forgiveness with God through the atoning blood of his son.Everyone that God justifies he also sanctifies.

C.H.Spurgeon was one of God's mighty servants who longed to see sinners saved by God's Almighty Grace.His work 'The Soul Winner' is one of the great classics on God's work in salvation,that God's faithful ministers,in particular, and every believer,in general,should be engaged in,at varying levels according to grace,gift,and their level of spiritual maturity.Spurgeon's heart to see 'The Lost' won to Christ is revealed in his concluding exhortation to sinners-"Meet me in heaven".His 'All Of Grace' is a simple,powerful presentation of the Gospel of 'The Grace Of God' and is a very helpful book to use to help gather in God's lost sheep.
Although Charles Spurgeon presents this book as an introduction, I think it is too difficult for seekers and new Christians. Instead it is an ideal choice for someone looking to reconnect to Jesus and grow deeper in their faith. Spurgeon did a good job of writing in simple and plain English, so even though much time has passed since he wrote 'All of Grace', it is still readable for us modern folk. But I do not think it would make a good introduction because (1) Spurgeon tends to assume that readers have a basic familiarity of concepts like justification, and (2) because much of the book is about the doubts and spiritual battles that take place in the life of experienced believers. But for those experienced Christians, this book offers much solid food. No milk here.

One example is of Spurgeons definition of faith, which involves three parts: information, belief, and trust. Spurgeon rejects the idea that faith is blind or without evidence, but draws out the importance of trusting in God the way a blind person trusts a sighted man to help him cross the street, or the way a child trusts his parents to provide for him, or the way a patient trusts an experienced doctor to care for her.

Another good example is one that I suspect is relevant to many Christians: the belief that we are not faithful enough and repentant enough. Spurgeon discusses this battle from his life - that he would cry because he could not cry, that his heart would break because it would not break. In the end he points out that we are fallen and it is no more possible for sinful man to repent perfectly than it is possible for us to live perfectly. What is important is not how many tears, but that you shed but that you turn away from sin, even if imperfectly, and cling to Jesus like how a barnacle clings to a rock. Another related point that he makes later in the book is that we do repent and then see Christ, but rather that we see Christ and then repent. This is also important because we once again are tempted to turn our own repentance into a work that we need for salvation. By realizing that repentance is only possible with Christ we can put the focus where it belongs - on Jesus. Interestingly enough, one of the themes that comes out of these types of lesson is that our struggles to love God more are really acts of self-love. We focus on ourselves and our struggles and trials and tribulations. Instead we should stop focusing on them so much and turn to Jesus.

I have only touched upon a few of the man rich insights in this book, so if you are intrigued I strongly recommend it. It is a bit more difficult than more modern books on Christianity, but not by much.
Spurgeon is a master. His style is easy to read and abundantly clear. This is probably the simplest and most complete presentation of the Gospel I have found. I have read it twice and heard it on audio books once. I sent it to my beloved nephew to encourage him.
I enjoy reading Spurgeon, and this was no exception. However, I did find more objectionable in this book than in most of his. The punctuation seemed much worse, and it wasn’t even consistent. He seems to believe in the doctrine of election and discusses it more here than usual, and he doesn’t give the book, chapter, or verse for the Bible quotations he uses. In addition, I found him more repetitive here. However, the book is still full of meaning and has the potential of growing faith.
