Audio Sermons : J. Edwin Orr :  The Awakening of 1859 in Britain and Elsewhere

 The Awakening of 1859 in Britain and Elsewhere by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Revival History
Description: Preached at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys. In this relatively short sermon, Orr explains how the revival in America caught fire starting in Ireland, and its effects even surpassing that in America. Sinners were violently prostrated in what they called at that time "slain in the Spirit." He chronicled how prayer meetings mushroomed all over Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, and literally hundreds of thousands converted to Christ. The fires of revival spread to the Scandanvian countries, Germany (which had 30 years of it) and the greatest outpourings ever to occur in Australia and South Africa.

 Good revival overview on UK's & other nations 
Orr packed a lot of information into this short sermon, but it is worth a listen. It bears out how powerful people hearing about revival in another place and set out to seek God for themselves resulted in the Spirit's outpouring. A lot of detail at times, but good testimonies sprinkled throughout and I got a general sense of how revival spreads much like a wildfire.
