We’ve added a link and small article about Maria Woodworth-Etter being in Greensburg, Indiana where a church was established in 1887 out of revival meetings she held there. Most of the churches that came from W-E meetings did not succeed as the revival atmosphere would disappear when she left town.

We’ve added several books to the reference page under E, E. Byrum’s biography. His classic book titled “Divine Healing for the Body and Soul” is one of the newly added items. The Church of God, Anderson Indiana was a revival movement in the late 1800’s which included Divine Healing as a foundational belief. Byrum himself stepped outside the denominational box to work with F. F. Bosworth, although he received little support within his own leadership structure. Byrum had a passion for healing and pursued it, even when it cost him to do so.

We have found and interesting book on the history of healing and the Church of God. The title is “Who Healeth All Thy Diseases: Health, Healing, and Holiness in the Church of God Reformation Movement” (Revitalization: Explorations in World Christian Movements Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies) by Michael S. Stephens (Jul 7, 2008) One of the things this book mentions is a link between E. E. Byrum and F. F. Bosworth which we were previously unaware of.
Unfortunately our distributor does not carry this book but Amazon has limited quantities if you are interested in following up on this topic.
