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

A magnificent depiction of Luther and the forces at work in the surrounding society that resulted in his historic reform efforts, this film traces Luther’s life from a guilt-burdened monk to his eventual break with the Roman Catholic Church.

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.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

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.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Running Time: 195 minutes
