America's Revival Tradition and the Evangelists Who Made It
The religious revival meeting has been a vital part of American culture from the colonial period to the present. Begun by Puritan preachers in the 17th century, it has persisted through the years and decades of our history. This book is about the evangelists who created and perpetuated that revival tradition--from Jonathan Edwards to Billy Graham and the televangelists of our day. The focus is on the evangelists and their unique contributions, but at the same time the book reveals the respective flaws of those dynamic preachers of the Christian gospel.
