Item description for Rees Howells: Intercessor by Norman Percy Grubb...
Rees Howells was a man of little worldly fame, yet through Norman Grubb's best-selling biography, his life story has become known to millions. Born in a Welsh mining village, Rees Howells left school at twelve and worked in a tin mill and a coal mine. As he came to know the redeeming power of his Lord and Saviour he faced the implications of an entire surrender, learned to love the unlovely and found the key to the power of prayer. As a result he became a man of great Christian inspiration to others in both Britain and Southern Africa where he became the channel of a mighty revival. Norman Grubb describes all this, but also the foundation of the Bible College of Wales at Swansea, perhaps the greatest monument of Rees Howells' work, and the intercessory prayer that became his hallmark, impacting as it did on national policy and international affairs. Rees Howells' life was so great that the Church of Christ still feels the impact of his truths of the Spirit and the Scriptures in a unique and amazing way. Every chapter in this biography is full of drama and light. Rees Howells, Intercessor is an enthralling story, told with simplicity, humanity and humour, and it has proved an inspiration for nearly half a century, during which time it has been translated into more than forty languages and has sold over ten million copies worldwide.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rees Howells: Intercessor?
Life changing book, for those taking the time to read it. Mar 13, 2008
Those familiar with the lives of George Muller of Bristol, or J. Hudson Taylor will appreciate the story of Rees Howell's life. Here is another giant of the faith who's life, more than anything else, is a testimony to the security found in totally trusting God for all our needs. This book is also an excellent primer on what it means to be, and how to live out the life of, an intercessory prayer warrior.
Excellent Reading Dec 31, 2007
Rees Howells: Intercessor book is very good. I am in the middle of reading it now. I find it hard to put it down. He really shows what surrendering your whole life over to the Lord is all about. I am learning so much from his book and see in my own life how I must get closer to the Lord. I thought I was doing OK until I started reading this. Excellent book for new believers and well seasoned believers. You will want to buy a few to give out to your friends and family!
May we all seek to be used of God, as Mr. Howells was. Dec 27, 2007
I read this book for the 1st time more than 25 years ago and have re-read it many times over the years. It is easy to read and understand and yet, with each reading, it so inspires you to move closer to God, be willing to surrender and do all that He asks, and to seek a deeper relationship of service. The tests may be difficult, as with Mr. Howells, but that makes the reward even sweeter!!
If you seek an inspiring book, with the power of the Holy Spirit, read this book and let the Lord use it to give you passion for His work.
It is simply stunning, and humbling Sep 18, 2007
I find it interesting that the few reviewers' low rating of this book because of Howells theological understanding of intercession. As though we can't find fault with his life, we must fault his theology. Notice this man, like many in the Bible, does not talk to God, or merely listen to Him--he talks WITH Him. That's the greatness of this man. After reading this book, by His grace, I will be on my knees more often. Perphas one day, I will talk less to Him, listen more from Him, and in between talk more WITH Him. Another thought: as exemplfied in this book. Prayer and faith are inseparable. The deeper the prayer, the greater the faith. And in turn, that faith reinforces even a greater need for prayer and dependence upon the Lord.
A must read! May 12, 2007
For anyone seeking a deeper prayer life this book is for you. Reese Howells walked the walk. While the book portrays his intercessory life rather than a "how to manual", there are golden nuggets of insight and wisdom dispersed through out it's pages. It is also inspirational and brings encouragement to keep fighting the fight of faith.
