Through the way the Lord worked during those few years Chet was able to learn a lot about how revivals function. After having read extensively on historical revivals, it is acknowledged that the USS Barry Revival would not be considered massive, when compared alongside what took place in Wales (1904-1905), Azusa St. (1906-1915), or other great revivals, but it was still a real revival in its own right, and the events that occurred displayed many of the same commonalities as those other revivals. To be able to capitalize on these rare and unique seasons of refreshing, it is vital that we understand their characteristics, so when they do happen in the future, and we are blessed to be a part of them, we will be able to retain the harvest they will inevitably produce.
