Description

This book provides a critical analysis of a revival often overshadowed by earlier "great awakenings". The Revival of 1857-58 was a widespread religious awakening most famous for urban prayer meetings in major metropolitan centres across the United States. The author places this revival within the context of Protestant revival traditions and suggests that it may have been the closest thing to a truly national awakening in American history.show more
