An inspiring true story of what God did right under the noses of the KGB. This revival touched nearly every corner of the Soviet Union.

What would you do if the government confiscated all the Christian churches in your city? Further, what if they said that all Christ-followers would have to worship together in one location, regardless of denominational affiliation? No, this isn’t some sort of doomsday prediction. It really happened. But the outcome was nothing short of a God-ordained miracle.

If you watched the video, you already know the gist of this mind-boggling story. But here's what a few people who read the manuscript in advance had to say:

“I never get tired of reading stories of revival and I wasn't disappointed reading The Great Soviet Awakening. This is a true story of a modern day outpouring of the Holy Spirit that I witnessed firsthand. As I read Tom's account, it renewed my hunger to be part of what God is doing all over the world today, and I pray it does the same for you!”
Don Moen, singer, songwriter, recording artist, producer

“I recommend this book for every person...”
Slavik Radchuk, international evangelist with radio and television broadcasts to 100 million people each week in 135 countries

“The very real but hidden story of a spiritual revival that happened in the unlikeliest of circumstances and against what would appear to be insurmountable odds. I was drawn in from the start! Now when we recount the revivals of the twentieth century – Wales, Azusa Street, the Jesus Movement, Latin America – we'll certainly have to include this one at the top...”
Bob Kilpatrick, singer, songwriter, author of The Art of Being You

“You will revel in this account of an authentic revival...”
Bob Sorge, author of 19 books including Exploring Worship and Unrelenting Prayer

“This book is a timely faith builder. As Tom recounts the incredible revival that made history in the Soviet Union, your heart will soar as you read about the tangible power of God. How, against all natural opposition, God showed up for a few who were seeking Him, to make a global impact. It will inspire you...”
Leann Albrecht, author of Screaming on the Inside
