Book Review: A Diary of Revival: The Outbreak of the 1904 Welsh Revival

Kevin Adams, A Diary of Revival: The Outbreak of the 1904 Welsh Revival (Broadman & Holman Publishers, 2004) 149 pages.

Kevin Adams prepared this book as part of the 100th anniversary of the Welsh Revival, which started in 1904 and influenced many across the world who soon experienced similar revivals.

Adams tells us about Evan Roberts in good detail. I learned many new items about this heralded revivalist. Adams then goes on to describe the revival through the letters and diaries of a number of the participants and speakers.

I found this portion of the book difficult going because of the detail and lengthy writing of the folks back then. However, anyone seeking an in-depth understanding of the Welsh revival will benefit from this work.
