- Signs of Revival by Patrick Dixon (Kingsway, 1994),
- Prepare for Revival by Rob Warner (Hodder and Stoughton, 1995),
- Catch the Fire and Pray with Fire by Guy Chevreau (Marshall Pickering 1994, 1995)
place the current blessing in the context of revival phenomena especially in the last 300 years.
- A Breath of Fresh Air by Mike Fearon (Eagle 1994),
- The Toronto Blessing by Dave Roberts (Kingsway, 1994),
- The Impact of Toronto edited by Wallace Boulton (Monarch, 1995), and
- Keep the Fire by John Arnott (Harper/Collins, 1995)

- Something Extraordinary is Happening by Andy and Jane FitzGibbon (Monarch, 1995) and
- The Sunderland Refreshing by Ken and Lois Gott (Hodder and Stoughton, 1995)
both detail the impact of this blessing in Sunderland in the north of England.
- Rumours of Revival is probably the best video around describing ‘The Toronto Blessing’. Leaders in England and America comment from various perpectives, including some negative ones. However the overall concensus is that God is moving in powerful ways in the earth through this blessing.
