"Have you heard about the revival in Canada?"
This was the question put to me by pastor friends who met me in the Vancouver International Airport. The date was November: 1971 and I had just returned from an evangelistic and Bible teaching ministry in Mexico and Guatemala..
Of course I had not heard about revival in Canada, but I was interested and just a little bit uneasy.
I continued my journey toward the Peace Country of Alberta, where we make our home. In a second airport, the bustling frontier terminal at Fort St. John, B.C., I was again confronted by another pastor, "Have you heard about the revival in Saskatoon?"
By then I had. And the uneasiness was changing to just a little fear. I was not afraid of revival, but I was afraid of its spiritual and national significance. In Manchuria, Korea, and China, and to say nothing of Eastern Europe just before World War II, revivals had immediately preceded national and political disaster. What did all this mean for my wife, our children, our nation?
At home in Beaverlodge I discovered my wife as excited as everyone else about what God was doing in Saskatchewan. She had been talking to Lou Sutera on the phone and was brimming with details.
Revival had come to Canada, and - as I was soon to find out - it was a revival of love. How it came to my own heart and what we have learned I shall relate as we proceed in these pages.
My object in writing is not to create a chronological account, nor even to trace a geographical pattern of the Holy Spirit's working. From incidents in the Philippines, in Saskatchewan, in Africa, from eternal truths made personal and alive I have drawn the raw materials. Thus, with a cautious mixture of narrative, scripture and experience I am seeking to describe the revolution of love - and to create a deep hunger in thousands of hearts for God's exploding love.
