About the Author

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.Read more ›
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!
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.
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.
