ISBN: 9780718895594


Doris Ruscoe came to the Bible College of Wales in 1932. “I was earnestly seeking to meet God in a new way,” she wrote. “The answer came to me through Rees Howells.”

This is a new edition of the classic summary of the teachings and writings of the great Welsh preacher and missionary Rees Howells on the subject of Intercession. In the first two chapters the author, one of his colleagues, explains how she met Rees Howells, the effect he had on her spiritual guidance and how he himself met with God and came to understand the need for intercession.

In the remaining chapters the author introduces detailed notes that were taken at the time of Rees Howells’ Bible readings and his commentary on them. These passages, often quoting Howells verbatim, provide an invaluable insight into his thinking. Because of this, Ruscoe’s book remains one of the most important documents about Rees Howells currently available, including as it does a valuable collection of original material, and will appeal to a wide range of evangelicals.

The book contains a foreword by Norman Grubb, author of Rees Howells, Intercessor also published by The Lutterworth Press, and a preface by Rees Howells’ son, Samuel Rees Howells, Director of the Bible College of Wales.
