Forgotten Heroes of Revival
Five Men of the 18th Century Evangelical Awakening
The ‘forgotten heroes’ described here had a deep love for Jesus Christ and for the souls of their listeners which enabled them to stand strong through the storms of persecution and to preach a message that didn’t only address the mind with truth, but reached right into the hearts. The Word of Life shook their congregations—it stirred them, and many were saved. Read about the amazing lives of George Thomson, James Rouquet, Captain Jonathan Scott, David Simpson and Thomas Pentycross.
- George Thomson (1698-1782) God’s Pioneer in Cornall
- James Rouquet (1730-1776) The Poor Man’s Preacher
- Captain Jonathan Scott (1735-1807) In the Lord’s Army
- David Simpson (1734-1799) The Good Samaritan

“This fascinating book is recommended to all lovers of historical biographies, but also for all Christians who want to know what preaching the gospel is all about, even today.” — Evangelical Times
