Publisher's Summary

In God’s Generals, Roberts Liardon will help you recapture God’s glory with compelling spiritual biographies of some of the most powerful ministries to ever ignite the fires of revival. Liardon faithfully chronicles their lives in this work, along with their teachings, and their spiritual discoveries. 

Four of God’s generals who you will meet include:

  • William J. Seymour, the son of ex-slaves, who turned a tiny horse stable on Azusa Street, Los Angeles, into an internationally famous center of revival
  • Aimee Semple McPherson, the glamourous and flamboyant founder of the Foursquare Church and the nation’s first Christian radio station
  • Smith Wigglesworth, the plumber who read no book but the Bible - and raised the dead
  • Kathryn Kuhlman, the beloved evangelist whose miracle-filled meetings drew millions of skeptics to faith...and you will meet eight more "Generals" who dynamically demonstrated the Holy Spirit's power

Liardon also draws crucial life applications for you from the lives of these mighty warriors. God's Generals will help you learn to obey the spirit's leading in every area of your life - and keep your ministry powerful and successful! You can gain the victory in your life and ministry. Let God's Generals show you how!

Inspiring and insightful

I love how Roberts Liardon framed the good, the bad, and the ugly of these revivalists’ lives. It was clear that his goal was neither to glorify nor condemn any of them, but to honor what God accomplished through them. It left me feeling like God could do those things again through me, or anyone who is willing and pure in heart.

Experience Teaches Wisdom

I love and appreciate sharing the experiences of these generals. Experiences certainly teach wisdom, even someone else's.
Thank you Roberts.

The letter killed but the Spirit gives life

Reading the Bible as a child, I often found myself wanting to live this life, rather than just reading it or sit with those who barely got the letter.

God's Generals introduce you to several men and women with different backgrounds and struggles who lived the Spirit filled lives. A perfect balance of manhood and miraculous is presented to give hope of the reality of Christ in the past century, and not just centuries past.

Not a history book for church archives

It’s been a great journey with this book. Amazing stories and testimonies of how God used ordinary men and women mightily. If he did then, I believe he can and will do it again now through the vessels that are totally yielded.

A must listen if you're called in ministry

Absolutely loved it! Very encouraging and refreshing to hear the cost God's General paid if you feel call of God on your life. Clear cut basic instructional life lessons how to succeed and avoid pitfalls in ministry. Will listen again and make notes.
