John G. Lake: The Man and His Message (Book)
An up-close look at the man, his ministry and his message by one that had constant access to him for the last four years of Lake’s life.
Wilford Reidt met John Lake in 1931 and immediately drew close to the entire family, eventually marrying Lake’s daughter, Gertrude in 1941.
Wilford was continually in close contact with Lake and even helped organize Lake’s “School of the Prophets” (a short term bible school Lake planned
to launch in 1936).
While “familiarity often breeds contempt”, in the relationship between Lake and Wilford, it bred admiration and respect. Wilford saw Lake’s short-comings as a human but also recognized the intense standard that Lake set and usually maintained.
Wilford was present at many of the miraculous healings that took place both at the church Lake pastored and in Lake’s home as well as the homes where he regularly accompanied Lake to minister healing.
This book will give you a good idea of who John Lake was as a man, a husband, a father and as an early Pentecostal pioneer.
