Samuel Rees Howells - A Powerful Intercessor Whose Prayers and Intercessions Changed History!!!!

This is an incredible book about the power of intercession in the modern world! If you want to know how God still intervenes in history and how intercession and intercessors are used by God to shape world events, then this is the book.

Rees Howells was a powerful intercessor whose prayers shaped the course of World War 2 and his only son, Samuel, was taught by him, commissioned by him and was given Rees Howells' mantel by the Lord. Rees interceded for ten years of his life on an international level between 1938-1948 and his son Samuel was there with him learning and interceding with him. Then after his father's death, Samuel continued as an intercessor and interceded for more than 50 years on an international level from 1950-2004!!!!!!

Samuel Rees Howells lived in another world than the rest of us. His light into the teaching of the Bible was more like a prophet in the Old Testament. He lived, like the Old Testament prophets as a man who knew that His God would interven in wars, change regional and global events etc. His understanding about the Holy Spirit and the need for Him is amazing. No-one else is teaching what Rees and Samuel Rees Howells taught!

The first 50+ pages of this book begins with Rees Howells' life, from the perspective of how it influenced his son Samuel. It tells how Rees learnt about intercession, how God sent him to Africa and used him in great revival. Then we see what Samuel's young life was like. Then Rees opens a Bible College by faith and Samuel learns how to live by faith and joins him as an intercessor at this College.

I had previously read Richard Maton's earlier book, "Samuel, Son and Successor of Rees Howells", published just a few months previously. That was a good solid and much needed biography of Samuel Howells.

The present book, as its title suggests, while still biographical in nature, focuses in particularly on Samuel's ministry in intercession. His literally was a life of intercession. So while there are certainly some overlaps, this account contains much information additional to the earlier book. Entire (admittedly often short-ish) chapters concentrate on individual topics of intercession in Howell's life - in a fairly chronological order.

Thus, chapters appear on The War in Korea (1950s), The Heart of Kenya, The Cuban missile Crisis, China, Israel and the Six Day War, (and later The Yom Kippur War), Cyprus and Turkey, The Falklands War (fascinating episode), spiritual warfare for Eastern Europe, The Fall of the Soviet Union, South Africa and apartheid, and even the more recent War in Iraq. These are only Some of the many issues Samuel interceded for which are discussed in this book.

So in a wonderfully lively sense, this book almost acts as a living chronicle of some of the most major incidents in 20th century world history. But many other matters are also given consideration - the Charismatic renewal, the Emmanuel School, Samuel Howell's private life and his personality, etc. And in all of this, his personal weaknesses (we've all got them) are not left untouched. Many criticized him for not doing more to upkeep the various buildings owned by the Bible College. Many students were disappointed that they rarely got even a glimpse of him during their stay at the College. These and other controversies are all faced head-on.

I absolutely LOVED this book! How wonderful that the Maton's were able to write it and get it published so that the world can get a peek into what was the rather private life of the intercessors at the Bible College of Wales! I don't think anyone else could have written an account like this with such an intimate and loving perspective on Mr. Samuel, and such a reverence for the work of God that they were all called to. This is a history of the world as much as it is a history of the college. The intercessions went far and wide, affecting events all over the globe. It is a fascinating book to read, all at once inspiring, provoking, convicting.

Format: Paperback
This new book, by Richard Maton, charts the history of the Bible College of Wales, from the death of the founder, Rees Howells, in 1950, over the next few decades, under the directorship of Samuel Howells, Rees Howells' son.

The book is an inspiring story of how the College continued to be a powerful 'house of prayer', with intercession continuing for world events, under the leadership of Samuel Howells. It has been my privilege to serve at the College on the lecturing staff, joining it in 2004, the same year in which 'Mr Samuel,' as he was affectionately known at the College, was 'promoted to glory.' As staff members and students, we listened with great interest to the retired Principal of the College, Richard Maton, as he both recounted the stories of lengthy battles of intercession for world events, seeing dramatic results, such as the turning back of the Russian ships during the Cuban missile crisis, and the coming down of the Berlin Wall in 1989, after years of prayer by Samuel for the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe, and as he taught us some of the principles of intercession, which he and his wife, Kristine (who had been a pupil at the nearby home and school which the Lord asked Rees Howells to found as an integral part of the Bible College, and had gone on to teach there), learnt under Rees and Samuel Howells.

A few years ago, the current Director of Global Horizons - formerly the Rees Howells Trust - Alan Scotland, asked Richard Maton to commit to paper his memories of these events, and also the principles of intercession which undergirded them. Along with a slightly longer and more detailed history, Richard has written this book that combines the two emphases in a pithy and readable style.
