Men of Faith Portraits
The Gents toilets at Hope Chapel display portraits and short biographies of men who followed Jesus from different cultures, backgrounds, and centuries. Here are some recommended books or sources of more information on these men.
Rees Howells – “Rees Howells: Intercessor” by Norman Grubb
William Seymour – “The Great Azusa Street Revival: The Life and Sermons of William Seymour” by William Seymour
Samuel Tippett – The portrait of him at Hope Chapel is made up, based on what miners were likely to have worn in at the time in Bristol. Portraits were rare in the 18th century and were only of the wealthy. So there is no picture record of Samuel Tippett or any other Kingswood miners. There is an audio history of the miners of Kingswood recorded by the New Room Museum of John Wesley in Bristol. Click >here< to listen.
Ah Yin – “Chasing the Dragon” by Jackie Pullinger
Count Zinzendorf – “Count Zinzendorf and the Spirit of the Moravians” by Paul Wemmer
Let us know if you come across any other good resources about these men – films particularly!
