This book gathers together essays by evangelicals with different assessments. Religious craze and great revival were the calls and claims made about the phenomenon that hit the church in 1994. The Toronto Blessing was to create a stir in evangelical circles that has lasted to today. Carefully identifying, assessing and cataloging the phenomenon and its effect upon the Church, this report presents thoughts and conclusions to a listening public. In this balanced and sensitive work the background, development and future opportunities that surround this controversial issue are discussed in detail. Part 1 collects reflective essays by six leading commentators on charismatic renewal: David Pawson, Patrick Dixon, Stephen Sizer, Margaret Poloma, Martin Davie and Mark Cartledge. In Part 2, Hilborn draws on the Evangelical Alliances extensive archive to present a definitive chronicle of the Blessing, from its pre-history to its eventual decline and transmutation. Part 3 offers a valuable compendium of key statements on the Blessing issued by church bodies, Christian organizations, and groups from 1994 onwards.
