Sharon Wooding with her mother Glenys Sturgess in Wales, UKThe 1904–1905 Welsh Revival was the largest Christian revival in Wales during the 20th century. While by no means the best known of revivals, it was one of the most dramatic in terms of its effect on the population and triggered revivals in several other countries. The movement kept the churches of Wales filled for many years to come, seats being placed in the aisles in Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Swansea for twenty years or so, for example. Meanwhile, the Awakening swept the rest of Britain, Scandinavia, parts of Europe, North America, the mission fields of India and the Orient, Africa and Latin America.Note: Please help Assist News Service to be a voice for Christians around the world.

George Beverly SheaHistory Podcast (ANS) - Listen to Dan Wooding's moving interview with the late George Beverly Shea. Shea, who, although he was known as America’s Beloved Gospel Singer, was actually born in Canada. He was considered "the first international singing 'star' of the gospel world." This came as a consequence of his solos at Billy Graham Crusades, radio exposure, records, and television presence. Because of the large attendance at Graham's Crusades, it is estimated that George Beverly Shea sang live before more people than anyone else in history.

Warner Wallace, (author, Cold Case Christianity) know that parents, youth leaders, and Christian educators need to help the next generation embrace a biblical worldview. Their new book is available now!Anaheim, CA (ANS) - Sean McDowell and J. Warner Wallace’s rushed into the interview booth at the annual NRB convention, Proclaim 2019.  These gifted men, both university professors, and authors came to talk about their new book, So the Next Generation Will Know: Preparing Young Christians for a Challenging World.   Their new book is an extraordinary resource for equipping Generation Z with a biblical worldview."Sean is a professor at Biola University and he called me to talk about how this generation is more disconnected from their Christian faith than others.   Truly, this generation is walking away in relatively large numbers," J Warner Wallace said.  "Not to be alarmist about it, however, the numbers don't lie.  Sean said we need to equip leaders, educators, parents, and youth pastors to pass on the truth of Christianity to this generation.  Not just what they believe about church or faith, but more, why are these things true?  We felt like we needed a "how to" book because of people always asking us, how do we pass on our faith to our kids?"Now the narrative is that Christianity is bad, bigoted, harmful and exclusiveA "how to" engage with Gen Z"There are more ideas, more narratives out there, both in the media as well as the classroom, than before.  Our young people are bombarded with a "worldview" that doesn't include God and is anti-biblical, Sean said.  The primary narrative used to be that Christianity is false.  Not any longer however, now the narrative is that Christianity is bad, bigoted, harmful and exclusive.  Thus, many in this generation ask if this is a faith that I really want to embrace?  This belief system is going to cause me to be excluded, and marked as a racist or a bigot."J Warner Wallace continued, "This generation is the first to literally grow up with and be connected to smartphones.  Thus, as Sean said, the sheer number of voices out there espousing different narratives are available and promoted to every 12-year-old in America.   It used to be that you had to study philosophy or worldview in college.  Now you are inundated with ideas without training in critical thinking skills."This wonderful resource is officially available May 1st from Amazon, however, a special offer "pre-order" is available right now!  Go to to get several free resources when you pre-order through the end of April.  This special offer disappears on May 1st.  Listen to Sean's podcast at Reasonable Theology here.So the Next Generation Will Know covers how to: Recognize the uniqueness of Generation Z Connect with the hearts of young people Relate and share what we know about Jesus Provide kids a worldview that is significant Prepare students through movies, music, social media, and current eventsThis may be the most important book of the year!
