About the Author

Frank Bartleman (1871–1936) was an early Pentecostal evangelist who recorded the beginnings of the Pentecostal Movement. He and his wife, Anna, and their family went to Los Angeles in December 1904. Shortly thereafter, their oldest daughter, Esther, who was just three years old, died. This heartbreaking loss made a deep impact on Bartleman and led him to rededicate his life to God's service. He was a participant in the Azusa revival and other early Pentecostal meetings in the Los Angeles area. Bartleman was an itinerant evangelist for 43 years, eventually preaching across the United States and all over the world. He wrote more than 500 articles, 100 tracts, and six books. He is remembered for his passion for increased unity and spiritual renewal among Pentecostals.

I have been very challenged by this book.
Martin Book
You will see those who long for the touch of a loving God pursue Him in the midst of persecution and manipulation.

It was a very good eye witness account of Azusa Street and the revival that occurred in 1906 and beyond.

Format: Paperback
Azusa Street not only gives a detailed account of the intensity of the pentecostal revival that occurred from 1906-1909, but gives an excellant background of the events that led up to the revival and the spreading forth of this latter day rain across the United States and throughout the world during and after this time period. The writer, Frank Bartleman, is not just simply a reporter of the events that took place, but is an actual participant of this Holy Spirit revival, thus, giving the reader the benefit of both the facts of the events and the personal effects that the revival had on this person's life and on others that experienced it.
The account by Frank Bartleman clearly shows the sacrifices that he and his family made because he was determined to have a deeper and richer relationship with God in his life and to share this personal experience with others that he came across. The reader can easily visualize from the descriptions given, the trials that Frank Bartleman and his family went through, and at the same time, the strength of their faith in God that grew through each trial they encountered. It only makes the Christian today question himself or herself as to whether they have given their complete self to God to truely serve Him.
The book brings out that many of the trials that Frank Bartleman and other missionaries of his day encountered were actually with the organized churches of the day and the many evangelists and preachers that confronted them on the spreading forth of this new experience given from above. But yet, it is also revealed how many hungry souls there were who were desperately seeking this pentecostal experience.

21 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Rocco B. Rubino on April 29, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book is without a doubt one of the best Christian books I have ever read. It is the story of how the gifts of the Holy Spirit were poured out on a little cogregation at the turn of the 20th century.
Azusa Street is the eyewitness account of the story of the 1907 outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Azusa Street in Los Angeles, recounted by Frank Bartleman. It is the story of how God searched out vessels who were fit for the Master's use; vessels that had been purified by years of prayer and fasting, as well as a deep repentance of the most secret, and vilest of sins.
This book tells the story of how meetings "ran" themselves, whenever the pastor was late, or unable to come. It is the story of sinners begging God for forgiveness of sin and deliverance; it is the story of travail of soul to see more of God, and less of self.
I am sincere when I say that after prayerfully reading this book, you will be challenged to jettison your cold-formal religon, and you will be compelled to repent of your backslidden ways. I know that I was. I read this book for the first time about 5 years ago, and I frequently revisit it, and learn anew how I need to decrease, so that Christ may increase.
Read this book, and weep!

Frank Bartleman gives a first hand view of Asuza Street and the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. I was greatly encouraged and challenged by the aspect of becoming small enough for God to use. All of Him(Jesus). None of me.

17 of 21 people found the following review helpful By James T Humphrey II on December 17, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is not exactly what I expected, and the title is a little misleading. This book is not exactly a historical account of the the happenings of Azusa Street. Rather, it is more like the "The Memoirs of Frank Bartleman" or maybe better, "I was at the Azusa Street Revival." This book is an eyewitness account of Azusa Street, and the events leading up to the outpouring of the Spirit in Los Angelas.
At times, Bartleman seems to have an axe to grind, as he obviously did not agree with all that transpired at Azusa Street, and all the sects that spung forth from that movement. This book is more of a sermon or testimony than an attempt to be a history book.
While I believe this book to probably be an essential to any library for Pentecostal research, but is probably a poor place to start if you are not already familiar with what occured at Azusa Street.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By RaChelle Glauser on January 19, 2000
Format: Paperback
The author, Frank Bartleman, tells about the first Pentecostal Revivals in the United States. What really encouraged me was all the incidents he told of what went on in the early church's services and how the buildings were filled with immense "shekinah glory." Over and over again Bartleman shows how important it is to "die" to our "self" (fleshly lusts) and totally give ourselves over to God. Only then can He reveal His full glory and power to us. This is one book that, once you've read it, you feel the need to share everything in it with everyone you know. You'll be so blessed by it! I know I was!

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Todd Hudnall on October 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
When I sat down to read "Azusa Street" I expected extensive accounts of the Azusa Street revival meetings of 1906-1909. To my surprise, information about Azusa was not the focus of the book. It could have better been titled "The Adventures, Trials, and Opinions of Frank Bartleman." The book is essentially a journal of Bartleman's experiences in the early Pentecostal movement from 1904 to 1910, inclusive of his involvement in the Azusa Street Mission. Vinson Synan's introduction is informative and helpful in setting a framework for the rest of the book.
The book is an opportunity to view the life and mindset of this early 20th Century Pentecostal preacher. His life was not easy but it was greatly dependent upon God. Bartleman is a fascinating character. He is extremely opinionated, often critical and fanatical in his stands. At the same time his passion for the ministry, his simple yet unwavering faith, and his deep hunger for God are inspiring. I was moved by the sacrifice paid by this forerunner and challenged by his teaching on "death to the self-life." I recommend "Azusa Street" to those desiring a look inside early Pentecostalism.
