The Great Awakening
A history of the revival of religion in the time of Edwards and Whitfield
|Product Description: |
Although there were many scattered records of the Great Awakening it was not until 1841 the Joseph Tracy became its first authentic historian. He traces the awakening from the local revivals of the 1730's to the floodtide of 1740-42, drawing his material from many personal narratives and diaries of such men as Eliezer Wheelock and William Cooper of Boston, who had more persons coming to him "in deep concern about their souls" in one week, than in the 24 years of his preceding ministry.
