Your prayers are welcome for our upcoming book on revival God’s Firestarters, which Bill Glasgow is currently working on the formatting and layout. It will soon be going to our publisher Larry Luby in Dallas Texas. Our plans, God willing, are to have it out in time for Christmas shopping. To whom might you like to give this revival book? http://www.edhird.com Here are a couple of endorsements to consider from Bishops Silas Ng and Alfredo Cooper: This is a book this world desperately needs! As it says in the book of Jude verse 3, “I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.” Thank you, Dr. Ed and Janice for giving your readers to know how the Holy Spirit kindled the fire of those holy people in the past several hundred years through their witness of their family, especially relationships of husbands and wives in the twenty chapters to set on fire so many people to live for Jesus that He is our Lord and King. And, most important, to set us on FIRE! –Rt. Rev. Dr. Silas Ng (Chief Bishop, Anglican Mission in Canada)
Ed and Janice Hird create a spirit of excitement and expectancy in “God’s Firestarters” with their realistic portrayal of giants who moved the church in the Spirit. Revival through fiery preaching, yes, Holy Spirit anointing, yes, but also with roots in family life, marriage tensions, quirks and tempers, faith, much prayer, service, learning, study, holy and sacrificial living. The united picture gives us a sense of what it would take to know God’s visitation very realistically sparked among us today. –Bishop Alf Cooper (Chile)
