Roberts, Evan

<<Welsh revivalist>>

He lived 1878-1951 and was largely instrumental in 100,000 souls coming to Christ in nine months during the 1904/5 Welsh revival, which spearheaded a worldwide revival. Unfortunately, under intense physical pressure he became deceived, deluded and suffered a nervous breakdown, becoming a recluse, with much of the fruit of the revival soon being lost. His life is both an example of what God can do in and through a person, and a warning to maintain humility and be accountable to godly men and women, besides exercising wisdom in the care (stewardship) of our own body.

He believed deeply and preached, ‘Prayer is the secret to power’.
