He is the meekest man I ever met. He walks and talks with God. His power is in his weakness. He seems to maintain a helpless dependence on God and is simple-hearted as a little child, and at the same time is so filled with God that you feel the love and power every time you get near him. hese are just some of the descriptions from Azusa Street Revival participant William Durham of William J. Seymour who proved to be an effective leader, writer, teacher, and revivalist. His impact continues to be felt around the world today.
Seymour's early work has opened the door to millions of people finding the fullness of the Holy Spirit since the Azusa Street Revival, which both Life Magazine, and USA Today have listed as being one of the top-100-nation impacting events of the 20th century.
This book is more than the life story of William J. Seymour. It provides us with his original sermons, analyses of his teachings, and the complete and original version of Seymour's final book, Doctrines and Discipline of the Apostolic Faith Mission of Los Angeles, originally published in 1915.
With so much divisiveness in our world today, Seymour's pioneering message of unity and racial harmony continues to speak to our hearts with messages that are as timely now as when he first uttered them. His confident and steady voice calls us to holiness, repentance, faith, and racial reconciliation.
According to Seymour, the Pentecostal power (baptism of the Holy Spirit), when you sum it all up, is just more of God's love. If it does not bring more love, it is simply a counterfeit. It was this love that led Seymour to be an ambassador of hope and racial reconciliation to his generation.
