Product Description

Sometimes it seems as if there are almost as many different Christian churches as there are Christians. But despite widely diverse forms of worship, organizational structures, and biblical interpretations, Christianity over the last several centuries has been shaped by a number of common experiences. Arguably the most powerful and vibrant has been revivalism.
As a movement within Protestantism, revivalism is characterized by techniques of mass organization and leadership; an emphasis on repentance and conversion; and the transformation of lukewarm Christians into fervent disciples. But revival has occurred throughout Christian history and has affected all branches of the Christian Church.
From Methodism in Britain and America and the "Great Awakenings" to the nineteenth-century Catholic and Anglican revivals and the Pentecostal/charismatic movements sweeping many nations today, this book offers a fascinating look at thekey events and people in modern Christian history as seen through the lens of revivalism. Complete with intriguing illustrations and helpful bibliography, Morris's clear and stirring account captures the restless, continually self-regenerating character of Christianity, rooted in Scripture, but lived out in real human communities.

Editorial Reviews

"In Renewed by the Word, J. N. Morris, dean of the divinity school at Cambridge University in England, examines the long, complex history of revivalism, with its origins and development abroad and in this hemisphere. Written in a concise, scholarly yet readable style, it would be a valuable addition to church libraries."
-- Church and Synagogue Libraries

"The tension between structured organization and changing circumstances has been particularly acute in Christian history. Jeremy Morris, Dean of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, suggests in this volume that the attempt to adapt to the changes of the modern world gave rise to revivalism, which therefore holds a central place in the recent story of the faith. The theme of revival is treated broadly, encompassing not just the revivalism associated with the Great Awakening and Pentecostalism but also the Reformation and the Catholic resurgence alter the Trench Revolution. The renewal of the church is the fruit, Dr. Morris claims, of alteration to the Bible, which is why 'the Word' finds a place in the title. Painting with a broad brush, he presents an outline of the Protestant Reformation and the ensuing wars of religion, suggesting that by the eighteenth century toleration and pluralism were in place. . . . This is an introductory work for beginners, and as such it is to be welcomed. Basic themes to Christian history, made readily intelligible to non-historians, need to be disseminated in this way."
--The Catholic Historical Review
