The Boston Awakening

Boston's Quiet Revival

By Editorial Staff
Published April 10, 2008

IN THE PAST 20 YEARS, the city of Boston has witnessed an unprecedented rate of church growth even while the population has remained steady. This has some local Christian leaders and ministers asking if the first stage of a Great Awakening is being fueled by college students and immigrant churches.


“Staid, intellectual, overly-rational New England is, I think, experiencing a visitation of the Holy Spirit. God is very much interested in reclaiming this area and turning it into that beacon it was initially meant to be. We are on the verge of the most powerful, transformative spiritual revival this nation has ever seen.”

- Roberto Miranda, Congregation Lion of Judah


“When we see a desire for people to get together to pray, we know that God’s about to do something powerfully. And that’s the sense that we have. We think something greater is about to happen. And it’s our sense that when Harvard and MIT come back to Christ, then the world’s going to take note.”

- Alex Canavan, Christian radio manager


“All of the great revivals, the awakenings that have swept America and gone around the world, seemed to begin in New England. That’s where the revival is now. It’s isolated candles, but very soon, He’s going to bring the candles together, and when He does, the combined candle power is going to be brilliant, and it’s going to be astonishing to many people. There is so much pride here intellectual pride and so much excellence, that this might be the last place anyone would pick and that might be why God is picking it.”

- David Manuel, author and historian


“This is where the Pilgrims landed. This is where the Pilgrims made covenant with God to be a Gospel, covenant-keeping people. I think that there’s a sense in America that if it can happen in New England, it can happen anywhere. God has brought them from Brazil, brought them from Latin America, to Boston because this is where revival is going to break out. They’re way ahead of us. They’re passionate the Hispanics, the Brazilians, the Asians.”

- Paul Taylor, Director Northeast Prayer Center


“This is the region where church-planting started, and yet it is now the most unchurched region in the United States. It’s been 200 years since you’ve seen a real move of God in Boston. In 1900, the United States was the number-one sending nation of missionaries around the world, and today the United States is the 13th largest receiving nation of Christian missionaries from around the world.”

- Dan Clymer, church planting missionary


“A lot of the groundwork has been laid. The ‘quiet revival’ is a precursor to something more major. Another revival is coming, more along the lines of the Great Awakening.”

- Jeff Bass, Emmanuel Gospel Center


“I have never seen the Holy Spirit moving as powerfully as I have seen at these Boston Awakening prayer meetings. Compassion for the lost, zeal for evangelism, and power from the Holy Spirit is being imparted. There is a strong sense that revival is about to break out in the coming weeks. I urge all college students and people with hearts for revival on the campuses to attend these meetings as the Boston Awakening team imparts a vision for raising up laborers for the harvest field in Boston.”

- David W. Hill, Abundant Grace Church

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.
