Perspectives on the Asbury Revival (feat. Terry Roberts)
I thoroughly enjoyed interviewing Pastor Terry Roberts (Warrenton, MO) regarding his visit to the Asbury Revival in Kentucky.

You will not only benefit from his thoughts on the current events there, but what we discussed about various aspects of revivals throughout history.
