In this, the inaugural volume of the A History of Evangelicalism series, The Rise of Evangelicalism charts the the embryonic and earliest stages of Evangelicalism's rise from its precursors in the Anglican Church, to the movement's explosive revivalist power in the American Colonies under the leadership of Jonathan Edwards, George Whitfield, and John and Charles Wesley.
Mark Noll, a renowned historian and sociologist, tells the story of Evangelicalism's beginnings in England, and follows it eventual spread and remarkable expansion in the embryonic American republic. Noll considers a myriad of subjects within his striking historical narrative including theology, hymnody, gender, warfare, politics and science.
Nevertheless, it is the charismatic personalities of Edwards, Whitefield, and the Wesleys, the dramatic events they participated in, and their social influence that drive Noll's narrative, and shaped the now global Christian Evangelical movement.
Moreover, Noll emphasizes, particularly, the mid-eighteenth century revivals in Britain and North America that proved to be foundational in the development of the movement, its ethos, beliefs and subsequent direction. In these revivals, the core commitments of evangelicals were formed that continue to this day. In this volume, you will find the fascinating story of their formation, their strengths and their weaknesses, but always their dynamism.
