Book Description

22 May 2003 Stories of Faith & Fame
Rees 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book every Christian should read 19 Sep 2000
By A Customer
If your soul desires to know the one true and living God, REES HOWELLS INTERCESSOR will introduce you to him. There are mysteries in the Holy Scriptures that only the Spirit of God can reveal. Rees Howells' life is an accounting of His divine lessons in this intercessor's life. This book will bring to life new meaning to 1John 2:27 "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." I challenge you to this kind of faithful life. I am into my third or fourth reading of this book...over the past 8 years. This book reveals a true and personal God who is willing to take any one of us willing to walk His walk and talk His talk. Read this book! Our God is an AWESOME God! Sheri Chase

5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing testimony 19 Sep 2000
tom lennie (see more about me) from scotland This is a most amazing biography. I've read literally scores of Christian biographies, but this is undoubtedly one of the most enriching of them all. I've read it over and over - there's just so much in it; the life story of a Welsh man who sought to fully trust God in all he did, and who constantly stepped out in faith, often 'dangerously', yet God always provided for him. So challenging to each of us personally to really 'walk' with God, to put our faith to the test.
A VERY rewarding read indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars True faith comes from obedience 9 Jan 2007
By zukki3
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rees Howells lived a kind of Christianity that one might think extreme and unnecessary, but the rewards are truly unimaginable if we only press on in obedience and seek the leading of the Holy Spirit in every area of our lives. This is an encouraging book in which Rees Howells demonstrated how he fulfilled his call to a spirit-filled life with all the tests, trials and tribulations!!

Each chapter of the book tells how he came through from what seems to be the simplest, to the most challenging of tests to gain a higher spiritual promotion in his intercession. As he prayed, fasted, seeked and obeyed... The Holy Spirit gave him strategies, so he knew exactly what and how to pray, when to start and stop the intercessions - through which gained him (and God's kingdom) victory everytime!!

A brief record in retrospect of such a Godly man and what God accomplished through him, but a very rich book indeed on how awesome Christianity can and should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Challenging Book 16 July 2010
This book is a must read for anyone interested in the life of prayer and particularly those who desire to become intercessors.
Through the story of Rees Howells life and his training at the hand of the Lord in his intercessory life we learn the tremendous committment required, the enormous cost of true intercession and one is challenged to review ones own depth in prayer and desire to enter into the spiritual battle.
At a time when our nation desperately needs people of prayer and prophetic vision, this book offers an insight into how we might gain the victory in the spirit though committed intercession.

5.0 out of 5 stars a powerful insight to prayer 8 Jan 2010
The book shows that its not where you're from but where will you go. This gives an insight to Rees Howells extraordinary life during the early 1900's, when he lets God take complete control of his life, becoming a intercessor for others, showing that prayer is a powerful tool in changing people's lives and historical events

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and encouraging 13 Jun 2004
Rees Howells was an awesome bloke, clearly. The book is fantastic and gives an insight into a time when people trusted God on His word and then acted upon it. He was blessed because he was obedient and faithful and as such his obedience affects so many others still to this day. A very good read.
