I've never read a book that is laid out the way this one is. It has a "brief history" and then the text of the original documents referred to in the "brief". This book discusses the changing attitudes regarding the way religion was being taught in the mid 1700's- opposing the traditional "preach from the pulpit" versus a trend toward large outdoor "revivals". The traditionalists felt the revival was too casual and way too raucous to teach the respect and responsibility "the church" deserved. The revivalists saw a needed niche for bringing the gospel to workers who lived away from the town centers. Some also found that the "revival" experience of these Americans was no less "religious" but had a more real and lasting influence. After a period of waning interest in "the Church", Americans were coming back to the fold through the revival. The words of the likes of George Whitefield spoke to the individualism that came to be the hallmark of the colonial American.

I am doing a TV show on the subject of "The Great Awakening" with subjects such as George Whitefiel, & Francis Asbury. This book is invaluable to my research.

This book is interesting. It is about a totally forgotten part of history that is so important. The book is about the great spirtual awaking that swept this nation in the 1740s to 1750s. The event had a huge impact on the country. Many said it gave birth to the evangelical movement here in the US.

The book is put together differently than most history books. The first part of the book is a summary of the event. The rest of the book is a collection of letters about the event. That method has some pluses and minuses for sure. The plus side is you see the event from the people's eyes. That creates a new perspective and appreciation for the event. The negative side is you don't get the big picture of what happened.

I was really intrigued with the descriptions of the revials. These events sound like any similar event in US history all the way up to Franklin Graham. I was also intrigued by the letters from people that were against said events. They called them horrible because it unhinged people's emotions. That reminded me of the discussions today from the mainline dying denominations vs. the charismatic/fundamentalist/evangelist meetings of today. It shows the more things change the more they stay the same.
