This biographical approach to the history of the Assemblies of God is essential reading for every pastor and church member. Students and grandparents alike give rave reviews to this inspiring, well-written book. Who laid the foundation for what the Assemblies of God has become? They were preachers, missionaries, and teachers - ordinary men and women who were the raw material of the Pentecostal movement. Shaped and tempered by the Holy Spirit, they became His instruments of Spirit-infused vision and revival. These are their stories, stories of a people rather than a denomination. Attacked by skeptics, limited by scarce resources, and troubled by their own human nature, they overcame to create the Assemblies of God. Includes a CD-ROM with additional resource material.
