F.F. Bosworth was one of the few Pentecostal pioneers who played a key role in two major revival movements in the United States. As a young man during the early 1900s, he participated in the revival that spread from Azusa Street; and in his later years, he participated in the post-World War II revival that that swept over the United States. Though he died in 1958, the impact of his ministry remains strong to this day, especially among Word of Faith churches. His book, Christ the Healer, is still in print and is required reading at Rhema Bible Training Centre. Although much is known about Bosworth's teaching on divine healing, especially his emphasis on 'word confession' and the belief that healing is in the atonement, there is little known about his personal life. This article sheds light on the people who may have had the greatest impact on his development as a famous healing evangelist.
