An Episcopal priest, a spiritual wilderness, and a couple who shared the fire led to longed-for renewal. This now-classic story tells how the Charismatic movement began and swept into the churches across America. Father Dennis is still hailed as one of the central figures in the early renewal movement. Through Father Dennis’ testimony, the reader discovers how God can and will release His power to His people if we allow Him to truly become the King of our lives.
Dennis J. Bennett is also the author of How to Pray for the Release of the Holy Spirit and coauthor of The Holy Spirit and You. He and his wife, Rita, founded the Christian Renewal Association.
Rita Bennett, widow of The Rev. Dr. Dennis J. Bennett, has served as President and CEO of Christian Renewal Association Inc. (CRA) since Dr. Bennett’s passing in 1991. Rita and Dennis married in 1966. In 1970 she assisted him in writing his first book Nine O’clock in the Morning. It was eventually published in 14 languages.
