Overview Rabey's thoughtful and unbiased presentation answers old questions and raises new ones. You will think long and deep about your own beliefs and whether revival could happen to you.
Publishers Description The Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Florida, could never be described as a typical house of worship. After all, what kind of church draws more than 2 million people to its services in only three years? What is it about this church that makes drunks go dry, prostitutes go celibate, gays and lesbians go straight, and more than 200,000 sinners of all kinds rush down to the altar to get right with God? In spite of its tremendous success, Brownsville, like other contemporary and historic revivals, has its critics. They ask, Is the Brownsville experience the moving of the Holy Spirit, or is it an enormous Holy Hoax? Award-winning religion reporter Steve Rabey provides an objective and balanced report on how the fires of revival in Brownsville were ignited and how its flames have affected those who have made the pilgrimage to Pensacola. Rabey's thoughtful and unbiased presentation answers old questions and raises new ones. You will think long and deep about your own beliefs and whether revival could happen to you.

Reviews - What do customers think about Revival in Brownsville: Pensacola, Pentecostalism, and the Power of American Revivalism?
a good read Aug 28, 2000
This is a very interesting and well-constructed book. Gives some historical background to goings-on at Brownsville (though I would have liked more detail), provides fascinating interviews and profiles of 5 of the 'key players', and some amazing testimonies that seem to have stood the test of time. Though it does interview one of the 'revival's' main critics, it unfortunately doesn't go deep enough into researching the causes of this movement, comparisons/contrasts with other classic historical revivals, etc. A pity, because it is otherwise of real interest.
Historical Comentary May 16, 2000
This book concentrates on the historical facts of the revival rather than the miraculous. If you are looking for the facts, this book is for you. If you are looking for interviews that focus on the spiritual aspect of the revival, choose again.
Great Book to learn about a true Revival from the Lord! Aug 20, 1999
Steve does an excellent job reporting about the revival that has been taking place in Pensacola, Florida from May 1995! He really reports on both sides; people involved in the revival and her skeptics...some even former church members. I particularly enjoyed his candid interviews with ministers at Brownsville. One thing that came out of it...The Revival is about the Lord Jesus Christ and people getting RIGHT for and because of Jesus' saving power! (It's all about you, Jesus!):-) ~~~~\o/~~~~~~
