Apostles Of The Spirit And Fire

Full Product Description

This is a book about American revivalist religion and the ways in which it impacted British Christianity in nineteenth-century England.

The term 'revivalist' seems to have first been used in the period after the 'Second Great Awakening' in the United States. It designated those individuals and churches who sought to manufacture or create revival by human endeavour rather than, as in former times, pray and wait for a sovereign move of God's Spirit. Revivalism had a number of marked features which are charted in detail in chapter 1. It was inevitably characterised by emotion, excitement and religious exercises.

Particular attention has been given to ways in which the different American revivalists understood revival and the methods by which they sought to achieve it. The book also includes a focus on some often overlooked female revivalists.

Nigel Scotland is a church historian who has paid particular attention to Evangelicalism in nineteenth-century England. His many publications include Evangelical Anglicans in a Revolutionary Age (2004), Good and Proper Men: Lord Palmerston and the Bench of Bishops (2000) and John Bird Sumner Evangelical Archbishop (1995). He was Field Chair and Principal Lecturer at the University of Gloucestershire until 2007. He has been a Tutor at Trinity College, Bristol, since 2006 and in 2008 was made an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Gloucestershire.
