Glory in the Glen
Full Product Description
The Christian Church is much indebted to Tom Lennie for the years of patient research that must have gone into compiling such a record. Packed with first-hand accounts from eye witnesses, testimonies from those deeply affected, and newspaper reports, Lennie's material is well documented and authentic. He describes localised works of God, many in out-of-the-way places from Galloway in south to the Orkneys in the North, from Lewis in the West to the East coast...the main thrust of this thrilling account can only leave us all with longing hearts and a desire to see such works of God again in our day.
...there's no gainsaying the awe-inspiring scale of his researches or the value of a study which so comprehensively and so vividly evokes the enthusiasm of successive awakenings in a period long assumed to be one of comparative spiritual apathy.
Glory in the Glen by Tom Lennie was published by Christian Focus Publications in March 2009 and is our 15414th best seller. The ISBN for Glory in the Glen is 9781845503772.

Glory in the Glenpublisher, via The Good Book Stall
No nation on earth has a richer, more colourful and more long-standing heritage of evangelical awakenings than Scotland. Yet most people are almost entirely unfamiliar with this dramatic, and somewhat incredible, legacy. Of the infrequent historical studies written on Scottish revivals, most stop at, or before, the Moody and Sankey Revival of 1873-74. It is commonly assumed that very few genuine revivals have occurred since that date. Glory In the Glen thoroughly debunks this theory, showing that religious awakenings were relatively common in Scotland until as recently as the late 1920's. Beginning in 1880, Tom Lennie provides a comprehensive account of the multifarious and exciting revivals that have taken place throughout Scotland during each successive decade up to 1940.

Most historical studies stop at, or before, the Moody & Sankey Revival of 1873-74. It is commonly assumed that very few genuine revivals occurred since that date until the Lewis Revival of 1949-53. Tom Lennie thoroughly debunks this idea - showing that religious awakenings were relatively common in Scotland between these dates - and provides a comprehensive account of the many exciting revivals that have taken place throughout Scotland.
The Awakenings in the Outer Hebrides and North East fishing communities, that had several unique and striking features, are considered in separate sections. Revivals amongst both children / students and Pentecostals are also given separate treatment. The Awakenings in the Outer Hebrides and North East fishing communities, that had several unique and striking features, are considered in separate sections. Revivals amongst both children / students and Pentecostals are also given separate treatment. Of particular significance is the first comprehensive account of the 1930's 'Laymen's Revival' in Lewis.
This fascinating, but near-forgotten, movement may have been even more powerful and influential than the later Lewis Revival. Glory in the Glen tells a thoroughly absorbing, and largely untold, story. It is the result of painstaking research, conducted over more than half-a-decade, from hundreds of source materials as well as personal interviews. Much of the material has never before been published.
