Rare Pentecostal/ Healing Books Available Again!

Many dismiss the ministry, experience and contributions of A. A. Allen because of his latter years–which were filled with increasingly suspicious behavior. But, whatever your opinion may be, few doubt the effectiveness of his early ministry.

Since his death, the two books that told the story of Allen’s personal quest to demonstrate God’s power have been out of print and VERY difficult to find. These two inspirational resources are now available from John Carver Ministries. The Life of A. A. Allen: As Told by A. A. and Lexie Allen contains Allen’s autobiography, “My Cross” (which details his personal quest for supernatural ministry) along with his wife’s biography, “God’s Man of Faith and Power”; these are reprinted with bonus material including rare photos and a recently discovered epilogue written by Allen just two years before his death.

This book will find a welcome place in the hands of anyone who longs for God’s power in their ministry. It will also fill a void in many historical libraries.

Foreword is by noted Pentecostal/Healing scholar Dr. David Edwin Harrell.

One of the most encouraging and empowering books I’ve read in a long time is Matt Brown’s Revolutionaries:Men and Women in Every Century Who Advanced Christianity.

Revolutionaries surveys over 40 men and women–from the first century until modern times–who laid down everything to spread the fame of Jesus. Designed to stir passion as well as to make history come alive, Brown does a remarkable job at framing how eternal significance is measured: through sacrifice and obedience. Each chapter is concluded with a strong, practical point of action that will challenge the reader to surrender more to the Lord.
Of particular interest to this blog’s readers will be his inspiring chapters on two notable 20th century Pentecostals–Aimee Semple McPherson and Smith Wigglesworth.
Pastors could very easily use this book for small groups and youth/young adults will find it fast moving and interesting. Quantity discounts are available.
