“Born out of the family's experience of the East African Revival and passionate about seeing such refreshment and renewal again, Richard Bewes tells the story of God's sovereign work in bringing revival across nations and down the ages. Richard's wealth of biblical wisdom and warmth caused me to plead: "Do it again, Lord, and start with me!" Do read this book and pray for times of refreshing, renewal and, please God, Revival!”See All

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.
