Eyewitness Reports from the Azusa Street Revival

Fire on the Earth: Eyewitness Reports from the Azusa Street Revival
by Eddie Hyatt

Eddie Hyatt's book on the Azusa Street Revival compiles a number personal testimonies of people who witnessed it firsthand. Here is the publisher's description:
Dozens of books have been written about the Azusa Street Revival as authors have attempted to understand and recapture this profound, supernatural event. However, the effort to glean meaning from what happened 100 years ago often leads to frustration and despair as authors seek to distill true history from myth and legend.

Eddie Hyatt went straight to the source for answers. Not satisfied with what others have gleaned, Hyatt mined The Apostolic Faith, the official publication of the Azusa Street Revival. Thirteen issues of The Apostolic Faith were printed and sent around the world as the Pentecostal Fire spread abroad. Fire on the Earth contains selected excerpts from these papers, shedding light on the events surrounding this major outpouring of God.

Hyatt writes, “Anyone reading these papers cannot help but sense the fervency and intensity of these saints who believed that the outpouring of the Spirit they were experiencing was God’s final call before the end of the age.”
