In 1949, coming off the heels of the Second World War, another kind of war – a spiritual war – was raging on the Scottish shores of the Outer Hebrides and especially on the island of Lewis.
The Calvinistic Presbyterians had traded the vibrant movement of God through John Knox for a cold, lethargic religion that was dead. By all accounts, not one young person was attending church in that region.
God raised up a fiery evangelist, Duncan Campbell, to be the general to oversee the taking back of the land. His coming to Lewis was a miraculous story in and of itself.
