Roberts Liardon is an author, public speaker, spiritual leader, church historian, and humanitarian. He was called into the ministry at a very young age, preaching his first public sermon at the age of thirteen and lecturing in Christian colleges and universities at age fifteen.
At sixteen, Roberts launched a radio program, and at seventeen, he wrote his first book, I Saw Heaven, which sold 1.5 million copies. His next book and video series, God's Generals, established Roberts as a leading Protestant church historian, and both books brought him international attention.
In his mid–twenties, Roberts built one of the fastest growing churches in the US, and established his first accredited Bible college. From this ministry, he founded more than forty churches, built five international Bible colleges, and assisted the poor and needy in his community, throughout America, and around the globe. Recently, Roberts launched a new TV show called God's Generals with Roberts Liardon, which currently airs in more than two hundred countries.
Roberts had the privilege of being mentored by Oral Roberts and Lester Sumrall, and now he is under the covering of both Dr. Che Ahn of Harvest International Ministry and Pastor Colin Dye of Kensington Temple, London, England. As a recognized church historian specializing in the Pentecostal and charismatic movements, he is much in demand as a speaker, writer, and mentor. His voice speaks to a current generation of believers who want to draw closer to the heart and mind of God and impact their communities and the nations of the world through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
This is a volume for the mind and the heart, providing a historical and theological perspective of great moves of God. Just as books encouraged John Wesley and George Whitefield to pursue God, reading the penned pictures of God’s Generals will encourage you to do the same. Roberts Liardon has provided another page-turner—one written in an easy style but with academic rigor. I warmly commend this book to you.
—The Reverend Paul Wilson, Methodist Minister, Knutsford, UK, Chair, Methodist Evangelicals Together, UK
God’s Generals: The Revivalists gives us a detailed look into the lives of the people God used to wake and shake their worlds. Roberts brings their stories to life and makes them relevant to God’s work on the earth today. It will stir you to take your place as we stand on the threshold of the greatest revival of all time.
—The Reverend Kate McVeigh, Author, The Blessing of Favor and Sharing Your Faith
Over the years, I have found myself referring to the vast knowledge within the excellent work of Roberts Liardon’s best-selling work, God’s Generals. As a Christian and a minister, I appreciate his commitment to this historical work and look forward to the release of this next book in the series.
—Kim Clement, Author, Call Me Crazy, but I’m Hearing God’s Voice
In this volume, Roberts again gives honor where it is due, yet remains true to history to include their failures and shortcomings. I appreciate that he never does so in a dishonorable way, but instead uses the opportunity to instruct us now not to repeat the same mistakes. That is the way of the kingdom. God’s Generals: The Revivalists is sure to become required reading to help prepare the generation that was
born for the greatest outpouring of the Spirit in history.
—Bill Johnson, Author, When Heaven Invades Earth, Pastor, Bethel Church, Redding, California
I highly respect Roberts Liardon for making the lives and battles of yet another set of God’s Generals available to this generation in a powerful and readable book. Because the lives and experiences of God’s men continue to minister to us, God’s Generals: The Revivalists is one of the most useful books a minister could lay his hands on!
—Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, Founder and Pastor, Lighthouse Chapel International, Ghana, Africa
As a historian, Roberts Liardon has captured the seed that was placed by heaven in the lives of these great men and women of God. Their stories, woven together, paint an awesome picture of the truth that the Holy Spirit has done a mighty work, and is still working today, to reach a lost and dying world with the Good News of the Gospel. The message is the same—the vessel and the method may be different—but it is the same Holy Spirit. May you be challenged and stirred to look forward with expectation, because the
best is yet to come—He has saved the best wine for last!
—Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne, Revival Ministries International, Tampa, Florida
In the typical Liardon style of thoroughness and detail, God’s Generals: The Revivalists takes the reader to new levels in biographical studies. The reasons include the author’s intensity of presentation, added to the fact that the men and women whose lives are herein chronicled surely stand near the mountaintop of greatness, above all those who have lived and ministered in postbiblical history. Many will be blessed, helped, and changed by reading this splendid work. It deserves to be read by every God-seeking person. A great addition to any library!
—Jack Taylor, President, Dimensions Ministries, Melbourne, Florida
Roberts Liardon has done a great work in writing the God’s Generals series. In this latest volume, he helps us to seethe footsteps of the revivalists and to learn how to overcome the barriers and win the battles they faced. It is a must-read book for Christians who long to see revival happen in their lives, communities, and nations.
—The Reverend Dr. Niko Njotorahardjo, Senior Pastor, Bethel Church of Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia
