From Plow to Pulpit - Frank Bartleman - eBook

£4.99
Frank Bartleman (1871 -1936) has become one of the most well-known figures in the history of early Pentecostalism, because of his chronicles of the 1906 revival at Los Angeles. 

He wrote numerous articles for a number of the holiness and early Pentecostal magazines, from 1905, documenting the hidden springs that led up to the revival, then reporting its progress. Later he condensed these articles with his diary notes, into a book entitled “How Pentecost came to Los Angeles.” 

But Bartleman’s life was larger than the Pentecostal Revival he reported. He was converted in 1892, and was soon licensed to preach by a local Baptist church. He attended a year at a night school run by his church and briefly attended Moody Bible Institute, reading many Christian books, but, it is clear that most of his knowledge and doctrine came directly by personal study of the Bible, as interpreted by the Spirit and personal experience. 

Before his arrival in Los Angeles in 1905, he spent most of his time crossing the country as an itinerant evangelist for 12 years, living by faith, often preaching to down and outs and having a fair degree of success. This book tells the story of these years, before Bartleman arrived at Los Angeles, revealing the heart of a humble, sanctified and serious disciple of Jesus who promoted holiness, consecration and the glory of God above all else.
