The message of Power Evangelism has been embraced around the world, and the book that started it all has become a classic, with more than one million sold. In
2006, Christianity Today named it one of the 50 most significant Christian books to be published in the last 50 years. This revised and updated edition describes the releasing of God’s power through signs and wonders to refresh, renew, heal and equip His people. Drawing from the teaching of the New Testament and with illustrations from his own experience, Vineyard leader John Wimber persuades the reader to “yield control of our lives to the Holy Spirit.” Though Wimber died in 1997, his teaching continues to spread throughout the Vineyard movement, through the broader renewal movement and to Christians across the globe, even those who do not consider themselves Charismatic. Co-author Kevin Springer—also a Vineyard pastor—has found that in the years since its first publication, Power Evangelism has only grown, and the results continue to be explosive. This edition includes a chapter-by-chapter study guide and reflects changes Springer and other power evangelism practitioners have made in presentation—not in content—for readers in the new millennium.

I want everyone to know that I AM GINA, Dexcine's daughter and the one that found my brother Steven in the pool! I have to tell you that this story is not completely true. My step-father Steve Dixon was addicted to alcohol. My mother who worked very hard for us kids, had gone off to work that day. Steve Sr. had done some yard work and apparently left tha back door open with out letting me know. I had my brother and my sister Bridget in my room as I was trying to get my sister ready so we could go out to play. Steven began crawling out of my room and trying to keep up with a 3 year old and an 8 month old as you well know is a lot, especially for a 13 year old kid!!!!
I told my step-father that Steven was crawling out to the living room towards him. I knew he was watching the laker game and he said "ok". Well, a voice in my head sometime later told me to go to the kitchen and make a phone call.???? I coudn't understand why I was lead to do go there and call, but as I made my way, I saw Steven floating face up. I grabbed him and pulled him out, NOT Steve!!!! He lied and tried to make this story out like he was the hero. I think his guilt for realizing that he left the door open. I know that GOD was the one that SAVED my brother that day! I know the voice in my head was the Lord or my angel telling me what to do! I think if I had never heard it, he wouldn't have made it! Steven is now 26 and lived with me and my husband for about four years. Our mother Dexcine passed away tagically from a brain hemmorage in July 2003 and I refused to let them continue to live with their drug addicted father! Steven and my sister Bridget are doing wonderful now as am I. I know that our mother is watching over us from her Heavenly home.
