Rees Howells: Intercessor by Norman Grubb
Book DescriptionRees Howells was a man of little worldly fame, yet through Norman Grubb's best-selling biography, his life story has become known to millions. Born in a Welsh mining village, Rees Howells left school at twelve and worked in a tin mill and a coal mine. As he came to know the redeeming power of his Lord and Saviour he faced the implications of an entire surrender, learned to love the unlovely and found the key to the power of prayer. As a result he became a man of great Christian inspiration to others in both Britain and Southern Africa where he became the channel of a mighty revival. Norman Grubb describes all this, but also the foundation of the Bible College of Wales at Swansea, perhaps the greatest monument of Rees Howells' work, and the intercessory prayer that became his hallmark, impacting as it did on national policy and international affairs. Rees Howells' life was so great that the Church of Christ still feels the impact of his truths of the Spirit and the Scriptures in a unique and amazing way. Every chapter in this biography is full of drama and light. Rees Howells, Intercessor is an enthralling story, told with simplicity, humanity and humour, and it has proved an inspiration for nearly half a century, during which time it has been translated into more than forty languages and has sold over ten million copies worldwide.
