Richard Bewes first experienced revival as a child, to the sound of thousands of African voices singing. In Under the Thorn Tree, he retells this and many other stories from his lifetime of working and living to further the Kingdom of Christ. Revival comes with the sole pursuit of Jesus - He encompasses everything.
Richard Bewes is the author of several beloved books of faith including Talking About Prayer, 150 Pocket Thoughts, and The Goodnight Book. Bewes was the rector of All Souls Church in the centre of London from 1983 until his retirement in 2004. In 2005 he was awarded an OBE for his services to the Church of England.
... mixes history, truth and heart-warming stories to clear our heads and excite our hearts about revival. A great introduction to the subject which should whet your appetite for more.
Rector, All Souls Langham Place, London
Richard takes us to the heart of true revival ... stirs us to prayer ... warns us against false manifestations ... encourages us with wonderful, untold stories of the Lord's work around the world.
Vicar of St. Andrew the Great, Cambridge and a trustee of Keswick Ministries.
Simple, yet profound ... A book to read, and read again.
Director of Reform, Sheffield, and Member of the General Synod of the Church of England
Richard is both fervently pro-revival and utterly sane. Best of all, it's a book on revival with the gospel at the heart of it.
Dale Ralph Davis
Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
May this book provide a fresh impulse for Christians worldwide to pray for revival in our gospel-starved communities.
