A fascinating introduction to the English Revival of Christianity and the tumultuous world of the 18th century
The English Revival of the 18th century was an exciting time for Christianity that most people today know little about. For instance: What caused it and why did it spread? Did it prevent a revolution in the UK, similar to that which had convulsed France? And what effect did it have—locally, nationally, and globally? Introducing the Revival’s main players—the Wesleys, Whitefield, John Newton, and William Wilberforce—this book answers all of those questions and more. It brings together what they believed, what they taught, and the immense impact they had on the people of the UK, both the rich and the poor. Out of the Revival came the Clapham Sect and the successful campaign to end slavery; the Methodist church; and a new role for women. This book will interest and delight both the expert and history novice alike.
