5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Adam Thomas VINE VOICE on March 3, 2010
Format: Paperback
It's been a while since I've bought a book that I felt compelled to read cover to cover. This book is one of those books and I could not put it down! I have had the distinct pleasure of being present in one of Billy Cole's last services that he preached before he passed away. My pastor, Brother Jack Cunningham, had Brother Cole at his church in Chesapeake, VA. The service that night was no less than phenomenal.

I recently learned about the Life and Ministry of Billy and Shirley Cole book online and decided to purchase it. The introductory chapter for the book describes an account where Brother Cole, through the power of Jesus Christ, raises a dead woman. What an intro! The chapters that follow are an account of Brother Cole and his wife Shirley as they minister around the globe.

It was amazing to read how God's plan for Brother Cole's ministry unfold and how closed doors swung wide open by the faith and prayers of this man and his wife. I found myself eager to read on as I completed each chapter of this fine book. Faith began to build in my heart as I read how God protected Brother Cole and his family time and time again. Demonic spirits, cobras, and terminal diseases could not derail God's plan for Brother Cole and his family's ministry.

I have been forever impacted by the testimony of this Christian man and his family. Since I have finished reading this book I have gained a renewed desire to draw closer to Jesus and desire to experience the fullness of the Holy Ghost. New Testament miracles can and do happen in modern times. The path to revival takes sacrifice, and this book gives a small glimpse at the type of sacrifice that is required for true revival to fill the hearts of worshipers.

I can't recommend this book enough. You will be blessed and filled with faith.

i loved this book SOOO much!
I'm so glad I bought it of amazon.

The Coles have been truly inspirational... after reading it, I got up and questioned my life's endeavours... But God really helped me put things into perspective after being imparted to, through the wisdom of the Bro Cole.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book on the life and The Cole's! Bro. Cole speaks faith, and reminds us we have access to the same power as the original church in the book of Acts! Although I don't know Bro. Cole personally, his life and ministry has left an emphatic mark on my life, and we can only hope to allow ourselves to be willing vessels for the kingdom of God like Bro. Cole was!
