Overview

Introducing William Seymour

Jerry Newman doesn’t mean to keep getting into trouble—it just sort of happens. But when a practical joke goes wrong, burning down a church in his small east Texas town, Jerry’s widowed mother quickly sends him to live with his journalist uncle in Los Angeles. Jerry is secretly pleased—not only to avoid being punished for his crime but also to live in California . . . the end of the earth!

On the night before the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Jerry and his uncle go to investigate a popular warehouse church in Los Angeles. There, they hear a man predict the coming quake. But Jerry is even more impressed by the powerful preacher, William Seymour, and by the hundreds of blacks and whites worshiping and praying together in strange “tongues.” Jerry wants to believe Seymour’s message, but will he do so when it means confessing his dangerous secret?

A SIMPLE MESSAGE THAT SHAKES THE WORLD . . .

An adventure story, ideal for readers 8-12 years of age.
