The Content of this Revival Handbook

Chet’s Confession:…. I confess—all the knowledge I have within me and all that I convey to others has never originated with me. Everything I am and will ever be has come from outside myself, and that includes all the information in this revival handbook (1 Cor. 4:7).

My practice in life has been to make copious notes from books I’ve read—intended for my personal use—so I didn’t always document the source. Because these notes were for my personal use, I also didn’t go to any great extreme to ensure the quotes were exact. While jotting down information from books, I would frequently intermingle my thoughts within the notes—as a form of journaling. Many of the things I’ve compiled in this revival handbook have been taken from these book notes and personal notes I made about them.

I am now living overseas, without access to original sources, and am incapable of obtaining them. For that reason I want to make it very clear that I make no claim of ownership to the content of this revival handbook. If I know the author or originator of the information I have cited the source, otherwise—this is my general disclaimer—none of this information originated with me.
