A Brief Look at Revival Literature

The ministry of Revival Literature was birthed in Northern Africa in 1956. The founder of Revival Literature and author of the majority of books and booklets in this catalog is the late revivalist and evangelist, Dr. James A. Stewart.

James Alexander Stewart’s books and booklets have blessed tens of thousands and have been translated into many languages. This author was born in Glasgow, Scotland and “born again” in the same city. He began preaching at the age of fourteen and was commonly called “The Boy Preacher” throughout the British Isles.

His evangelistic ministry of over forty-three years has extended to many countries, but particularly on the continent of Europe. As one who has experienced revival in his ministry, he speaks with authority and insight on the themes of revival and evangelism. The famous Ulster revivalist, the Rev. W. P. Nicholson, said of him, “Through European countries he has brought thousands to Christ through his teaching and preaching. I have followed his work for many years. He has been used of God in mighty revivals in many places. He knows from a long and wide and successful experience what revival is, and how to make use of it. Many can and do write fluently about revivals, but they are merely writing about something that they have never seen as fact. James Stewart’s writings are different.”

Thus, for over 40 years, the ministry of Revival Literature continues to bless both those in North America and saints to the ends of the earth.

Since the homegoing of James Stewart in 1975, we have continued to reprint his books and have added several new authors to our publishing ministry. We believe that the writings of Ray Brown, Ralph Filicchia, William H. Finnigan, Jim Handyside, Robert Lescelius, Paul Reno, and Avery W. Rogers, who have a like vision for revival and evangelism, will bless you.

May the triune God of Revival—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—be glorified with the circulation of these writings.
