As the first male child born at Oral Roberts University—a large charismatic Christian college in the Midwest—his mother named him in honor of the university founder, Oral Roberts. His career in the ministry began at a young age of 13, when he gave his initial public address.
At 17, Liardon published the book, “I Saw Heaven”, which catapulted him into the public eye. The book sold over 1.5 million copies and by the following year, he had become one of the leading public speakers in the Christian community all over the world. This established him as a leading Protestant Church historian, a role he carries with honor to this day. God spoke to Liardon and inspired him to write and produce a book series and DVD series entitled ‘God’s Generals’. Its mission is aimed to chronicle the lives of some of the leading Pentecostal and charismatic leaders. It was an immediate success and became one of the bestselling Christian DVD series in history.
