'The Welsh Revival at the beginning of the twentieth century was a spiritual awakening that transformed the churches in Wales and had an impact far beyond its borders in the wider evangelical world. This symposium of essays brings together a range of scholars to offer a fresh assessment of the historical and ecclesiological background to the revival, to its leadership and cessation, and to the reception of the revival in the wider Christian world. This collection is a fitting celebration of the centenary of this signal event in the Christian historiography of Wales and its theological legacy for today.'

'Revival, Renewal and the Holy Spirit makes a significant contribution in bringing understanding of the revival history of Wales. It is a scholarly work which also provides ground for informative and inspiring reflection on what it means for us to see revival, renewal and national transformation in the twenty-first century.'
- Karen Lowe, Senior Leader, Antioch Church, Llanelli
'For those who were present at the University of Wales, Bangor, for the centenary conference celebrating the 1904 revival the occasion was certainly memorable. We learned that that great outpouring of the Spirit was more about the sovereignty of God than the personality of his servants and had as much to do with the expansion of the church world-wide as with the religious history of the people of Wales. This collection of papers provides a feel for the richness of that conference and takes forward our understanding of the whole phenomenon of revivalism. It blends first-class scholarship with warm piety and in reminding us of the excitement of 1904 provides food for reflection on the present and a mood of expectation for the future. In all, this is an excellent volume.'
