Item description for Revival Man: The Jock Troup Story by George Mitchell...
Overview Jock Troup's story is quite simply extraordinary. From a childhood in the Far north of Scotland he went to work in the fishing industry and then on to service in the First World War. When the major turning point in Jock's life arrived - his conversion. Jock went on to become an Evangelist, but no ordinary Evangelist. To quote a neighbour'he had huge hands. He could pick up a fully inflated football easily with one hand. He had sixteen-inch biceps, un-expanded, and a neck like a prize bull', and to match this formidable physical presence he had a fire for reaching the lost with the Gospel. George Mitchell gives fascinating insights into the lives of the fisher folk on the East coast of Scotland, and Glasgow life in Jock Troup's time. He includes testimonies of those influenced through Jock Troup and looks at the ingredients of revival, providing a useful lesson to the Church today.

Revival Man - The Jock Troup Story by George Mitchell
Jock Troup was a converted barrel maker turned evangelsits who saw revival in East Aangliain 1921 amongst the fisherfolk which spread up into Scotland in 1922 and the fisherman migrated up and down the coast during the herring seasons.
This is the only book i have read about Troup and was fascinated by the man who had a beer barrel chest - very strong - who also had a very powerful voice and when he preached, the Holy Spirit came and people were slain toe floor and repentance as the Refiner had come.
He later went to Bible College (on and off between ministry) and went onto have a power evangelist life, holding tent campaigns.
