Never before translated into English, these two massive volumes narrate the exciting story of the amazing spiritual transformation that affected Wales between the years 1735 and 1850. Of great value is the use the authors make of eye-witness accounts preserved in contemporary diaries, journals and letters. A truly exhilarating read!

These stimulating and enjoyable volumes narrate the exciting story of how Wales was spiritually transformed and the men whom God used to accomplish that great work. 'The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it' (Psa. 68:11). In this first volume, which focuses on the revivals experienced in South Wales, we meet the well-known figures of Daniel Rowland, Howell Harris, William Williams of Pantycelyn; but within these wonderful pages are portraits of many lesser-known preachers such as Griffith Jones of Llanddowror, Howell Davies, Peter Williams, and David Jones of Llan-gan.

What soon becomes evident in reading this fascinating history is the power of the Holy Spirit over congregations. From small beginnings in homes and farmhouses to great open-air gatherings of many thousands, the sermon became the foremost influence in the life of the nation. Whole neighbourhoods were turned upside-down and whole towns were subdued by the sense of God s presence. The greatest concern of all at that time was the state of one's soul before God.

The great value of these volumes is the way they take up the words of those most involved in these remarkable events. In journals, diaries, letters and Association minutes they describe a wide range of Christian experience conviction, repentance, faith and assurance, joy in the Holy Spirit, witness and testimony, conflict with sin and backsliding, restoration and perseverance all are encountered and described with transparent honesty and humility. Preachers will also greatly value the many experiences here recounted in the work of preaching the gospel above all the 'demonstration of the Spirit and power'.

About the Author:

John Morgan Jones (1838 1921) was a minister with the Calvinistic Methodists of Wales for over fifty years.

He was born at Llanddewibrefi, Cardiganshire (the village where Daniel Rowland was converted), educated at Trefeca College (where Howell Harris once presided) and ordained in 1870. A contemporary said this about his ministry:

'There are some perhaps who are more popular among the ordinary people, but there is no one with a purer gospel or who understands it better. He does not depend on voice or gesture. He has no silver trumpet or triple harp, but he has a speech live enough to cause excitement among the bones.'

He served churches in Dowlais, Ystalyfera, Treforest and, for 37 years, in Pembroke Terrace, Cardiff. For the last fourteen years of his life he was the superintendent of his denomination's 'Forward Movement', an organization formed to evangelize and build churches for the new masses of industrial workers that had moved into south-east Wales at the close of the nineteenth century.

Jones published various commentaries and biographies in Welsh, and innumerable articles. Much of his work had to do with contending against the rising tide of higher criticism. Through his biographical labours he realized that much of the early history of his denomination would soon be lost if it were not collected and published. Together therefore with his friend, William Morgan, he set about researching what was to become the two volumes of Y Tadau Methodistaidd.*

Because of his awareness of the importance of the Trefeca letters and journals, John Morgan Jones served as chairman of the committee formed in 1909 to facilitate their publication, and this committee led in turn to the formation of the Calvinistic Methodist Historical Society in 1914. He served as chairman of its committee from 1915 until his death in 1921. He was twice appointed Moderator of the General Assembly of his denomination in 1897 and 1920.

*Published in English translation (by John Aaron) by the Trust as The Calvinistic Methodist Fathers of Wales.
