Description : In the mid-eighteenth century, Americans experienced an outbreak of religious revivals that shook colonial society. This book provides a definitive view of these revivals, now known as the First Great Awakening, and their dramatic effects on American culture. Historian Thomas S. Kidd tells the absorbing story of early American evangelical Christianity through the lives of seminal figures like Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield as well as many previously unknown preachers, prophets, and penitents.The Great Awakening helped create the evangelical movement, which heavily emphasized the individual's experience of salvation and the Holy Spirit's work in revivals. By giving many evangelicals radical notions of the spiritual equality of all people, the revivals helped breed the democratic style that would come to characterize the American republic. Kidd carefully separates the positions of moderate supporters of the revivals from those of radical supporters, and he delineates the objections of those who completely deplored the revivals and their wildly egalitarian consequences. The battles among these three camps, the author shows, transformed colonial America and ultimately defined the nature of the evangelical movement.

Description : "Examines the causes and results of a great revival which attacked Old World traditions as out of place in eighteenth-century America. According to the revivalists, if the New World were to fulfill its promise as a land where God worked intimately with a chosen people, then stifling, time-worn practices must be reshaped into appropriate instruments for a vital, experimental religion. Eighteenth-century Americans were well aware of religious enthusiasm by the time of the Great Awakening in the 1740s. The churches, based on Old World institutions and customs, had played a central role in their colonial life. The proponents of the Awakening provoked a debate which not only had far-reaching effects but split most American colonists into two camps over its fundamental issue. Was the Revival a genuine outpouring of the spirit of God or was it rather a first-rate example of hot-headed enthusiasm traditionally considered false and presumptuous? Advocates of the Awakening were impatient with the confines of theology and church discipline and sought a more direct, intense, and personal relationship with God. Its leaders recognized the increasing influence of Enlightenment thought and the serious decline in religious practice in the Colonies. They urged a more active, personal, and emotional part in the spread of God's grace and warned of the consequences if religious complacency and disinterest continued to increase. In describing the sharp contention that took place during the Great Awakening and after, Professor Lovejoy has explored a major conflict in early American history whose legacy endures today. To many, the Awakening posed a threat to both religion and to the political and social stability of American society. Was the Great Awakening a burst of enthusiasm to be exposed and condemned as evil, or was it the beginning of a new religious spirit and technique that the New World experience demanded?"--Jacket.

Description : Most twentieth-century Americans fail to appreciate the power of Christian conversion that characterized the eighteenth-century revivals, especially the Great Awakening of the 1740s. The common disdain in this secular age for impassioned religious emotion and language is merely symptomatic of the shift in values that has shunted revivals to the sidelines. The very magnitude of the previous revivals is one indication of their importance. Between 1740 and 1745 literally thousands were converted. From New England to the southern colonies, people of all ages and all ranks of society underwent the New Birth. Virtually every New England congregation was touched. It is safe to say that most of the colonists in the 1740s, if not converted themselves, knew someone who was, or at least heard revival preaching. The Awakening was a critical event in the intellectual and ecclesiastical life of the colonies. The colonists' view of the world placed much importance on conversion. Particularly, Calvinist theology viewed the bestowal of divine grace as the most crucial occurrence in human life. Besides assuring admission to God's presence in the hereafter, divine grace prepared a person for a fullness of life on earth. In the 1740s the colonists, in overwhelming numbers, laid claim to the divine power which their theology offered them. Many experienced the moral transformatoin as promised. In the Awakening the clergy's pleas of half a century came to dramatic fulfillment. Not everyone agreed that God was working in the Awakening. Many believed preachers to be demagogues, stirring up animal spirits. The revival was looked on as an emotional orgy that needlessly disturbed the churches and frustrated the true work of God. But from 1740 to 1745 no other subject received more attention in books and pamphlets. Through the stirring rhetoric of the sermons, theological treatises, and correspondence presented in this collection, readers can vicariously participate in the ecstasy as well as in the rage generated by America's first national revival.

Description : Interpreting the Great Awakening of the eighteenth century was in large part the work of Jonathan Edwards; whose writings on the subject defined the revival tradition in America. Moving from sensitive descriptions of "the Surprising work of God" in conversion to a consuming quest for the essence of true religion, and threading his way through mounting controversies over "errors in doctrine and disorders in practice," Edwards sought to locate an authentic core of evangelical experience, to define it in terms of biblical faith and psychological insight, and to defend it against both overheated zealous and rationalistic critics. The tracts that unfold his thoughts, presented here (with related correspondence ) for the first time in accurate critical texts, document a movement so significant for the American character that it has been called "our national conversion." In a carefully researched introduction, C.C. Goen identifies the "Arminian threat" to which the Northampton pastor responded at the onset of the Awakening, and traces Edwards’ understanding of vital religion as it developed in the ambiguous context of revivalism. Mr. Goen’s study also illuminates little-known aspects of A Faithful Narrative and describes the haphazard way in which that important work reached its eager audience. C.C. Goen, author of Revivalism and Separatism in New England, 1740-1800 (1962), is professor of church history at the Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

Description : Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) is recognized today as a great theologian and philosopher. The historian Perry Miller has called him “one of America’s five or six major artists,” a writer possessed of “an intelligence which, as much as Emerson’s, Melville’s, or Mark Twain’s, is both an index of American society and a comment upon it.” But in his own day Edwards was best known as a leader of what is now known as the Great Awakening: a series of small-town revivals that mushroomed into a movement credited with giving birth to American evangelicalism and laying the groundwork for the American Revolution. In authoritative texts drawn from first editions and manuscript sources, this volume brings together all of Edwards’s essential writings from and about the revivals, including the famous sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” and his vivid Faithful Narrative of the Surprising Work of God in the Conversion of Many Hundreds of Souls, the work that first publicized the awakenings. Characterized by precise logic and powerful imagery, his writing continues to inspire students and spiritual seekers alike. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation’s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America’s best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.

Description : "A Wonderful Work of God: Puritanism and the Great Awakening is a survey of the American phase of the Evangelical Revival which swept Britain and her American colonies during the first half of the eighteenth century. Preceded by local revivals, such as the one stirred by Jonathan Edwards in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1734, the Great Awakening exploded into a mass movement because of the itinerant preaching of a young Anglican priest, George Whitefield, and a number of Congregational and Presbyterian ministers who joined him in the evangelical work. However, because of the bizarre behavior of some of the radical evangelicals, such as James Davenport, the movement soon became highly controversial and split colonial ministers and congregations into "Friends of Revival" and "Opposers." As the revival excitement abated, schisms beset congregations in New England and eastern Long Island, resulting in the appearance of separate churches, and the Philadelphia Presbyterian synod was fractured as well." "Drawing on both original sources and a review of the relevant literature, the author places the Great Awakening in the context of the Puritanism of the times, both in Europe and the colonies, and discusses its roots in German Pietism and the Methodist revivals in England. The significant figures of the Awakening and their interactions are brought to life, particularly James Davenport, the Awakening's most bizarre exponent and the preacher who, more than any other, was responsible for bringing it into disrepute."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Description : The Great Awakening Movement between 1720 and 1740s was one of most splendid chapters of early Christian history. The movement stirred up a mass religious conversion in colonial America with a call to live a holy life. The seeds of the Awakening were sown when Rev. Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) began to preach revivalistic sermons in Northampton, Massachusetts. George Whitefield (1714-1770) started his preaching tour of colonial America between 1739 and 1740. It was during his preaching tour that the Great Awakening erupted. Edwards and Whitefield were the two major catalysts in the Awakening era. It was during this period that churches of many different denominations had tremendous growth. Every believers life is a living testimony of Gods grace of salvation; George Whitefield said it so well in May 21,1740,Christ was God and man in one person, that God and man might be happy together again.

Description : A detailed examination of the First Great Awakening, this volume presents a valuable study of the spiritual movement that profoundly shaped colonial American cultural and religious life. Thomas Kidd’s comprehensive introduction relies on recent scholarship to describe three contemporary views of the revivals: those of radicals in favor of them, moderates supporting them, and antirevivalists attacking them. The views and experiences of these participants and critics emerge through nearly 40 documents organized into topical sections. By expanding coverage of the radicals and the ordinary people, including women, African Americans, and Native Americans, who joined the revival movement, Kidd gives students an opportunity to hear a broader collection of voices from colonial American society. The volume also includes illustrations, headnotes to the documents, a chronology of the Great Awakening, a selected bibliography, questions to consider, and an index.

Description : This book is a history of an astounding transatlantic phenomenon, a popular evangelical revival known in America as the first Great Awakening (1735-1745). Beginning in the mid-1730s, supporters and opponents of the revival commented on the extraordinary nature of what one observer called the "great ado," with its extemporaneous outdoor preaching, newspaper publicity, and rallies of up to 20,000 participants. Frank Lambert, biographer of Great Awakening leader George Whitefield, offers an overview of this important episode and proposes a new explanation of its origins. The Great Awakening, however dramatic, was nevertheless unnamed until after its occurrence, and its leaders created no doctrine nor organizational structure that would result in a historical record. That lack of documentation has allowed recent scholars to suggest that the movement was "invented" by nineteenth-century historians. Some specialists even think that it was wholly constructed by succeeding generations, who retroactively linked sporadic happenings to fabricate an alleged historic development. Challenging these interpretations, Lambert nevertheless demonstrates that the Great Awakening was invented--not by historians but by eighteenth-century evangelicals who were skillful and enthusiastic religious promoters. Reporting a dramatic meeting in one location in order to encourage gatherings in other places, these men used commercial strategies and newly popular print media to build a revival--one that they also believed to be an "extraordinary work of God." They saw a special meaning in contemporary events, looking for a transatlantic pattern of revival and finding a motive for spiritual rebirth in what they viewed as a moral decline in colonial America and abroad. By examining the texts that these preachers skillfully put together, Lambert shows how they told and retold their revival account to themselves, their followers, and their opponents. His inquiries depict revivals as cultural productions and yield fresh understandings of how believers "spread the word" with whatever technical and social methods seem the most effective.

Description : Although a considerable number of scattered records accompanied what Jonathan Edwards called the 'Revival of Religion in New England in 1740' it was not until 1841 that Joseph Tracy thoroughly sifted these original sources and became its first historian. He aimed to provide 'a work which should furnish the means of suitably appreciating both the good and the evil of that period of religious history.' 'His design,' as C. H. Maxson has written, 'was admirably executed.' This volume remains second to none in its definitive treatment of one of the most important and remarkable eras in the history of the Christian church in modern times.

Description : We all want revival. We talk about it, pray for it, and devise every evangelism strategy imaginable. We read about the Great Awakening and recall the Jesus Movement. And today we stand at the precipice of another sweeping spiritual outbreak that could reach the ends of the earth. But are we ready? Revival Culture is an inspirational, biblical, and empowering manual for the next generation of revivalists. Michael Brodeur and Banning Liebscher have been witnessing a spiritual renewal at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and through Jesus Culture, that goes beyond slogans and high hopes to actually reaching. They have learned that transformation happens when we see the unreached as Jesus sees them and when we make revival a part of our lives rather than an event. This is the full picture of revival culture.

Description : THE GREAT AWAKENING (PART 2) In 2012, after the second term election of Barack Obama, three patriots formed a secret group of ten very rich and powerful billionaires loyal to the flag and constitution of America. The group of ten named themselves "Q." They were worried about losing America to the Deep State (Globalists). The patriots were all personally acquainted with members of the Deep State and obtained first-hand knowledge on their plans.The most crucial part of the overall plan was to put a trustworthy president into office and subsequently, the right people into positions in the government, which would ultimately result in 'We, the People' being able to take America back from the Globalists.Supported by their powerful, secret alliance, they reached out to trusted associates, motivated by the same reason as to why the Deep State had always handpicked their Presidents; the assurance of a smooth implementation of their plans. Henceforth, they decided to beat the Deep State at their own election game, without letting them know they too were in the same game.Although the Q-group didn't reach unanimity they selected Donald Trump by 6 to 4. Trump was only informed about the basic plan, without too many details, and he was told that a secret, powerful group would be behind him, supporting and guiding him all the way. Trump was informed about the ten goals of the plan, to make America great again. Trump was not told anything about the Q-team itself. He was only told that a small secret group of rich and powerful people would secretly cooperate with him. Even the messengers that Q sends to Trump do not have any direct contact with Q. Every piece of information is communicated through a middle man. The Q management team consists of the ten creators, all designated by "Q." They are "The circle." They recruited ten more trusted associates who together form; "The inner circle." These members hold positions in the White House and in Trump's administration. They are all 100% loyal to the constitution, like Trump, and they fully support his endeavor regarding this monumental undertaking. None of these players are familiar with any details of the Q-circle plans, nor do they even know who they are. They only know that there is a powerful, anonymous force behind the President and they are simply the ones that are executing the given instructions, supported by their personal insight and acquired knowledge of the status quo. None of the above team-members know anything about the Q-circle, although some of them were appointed on the instruction of Q. That explains why certain Trump appointees seem controversial to outsiders.This interesting story is true history in real time. As far as was possible, it has been accurately and comprehensively researched, checked and elucidated with the information and Intel available at this moment in time. Share this information with everyone who is awake within your circle. In order to better understand and learn what is truly going on in our world today, THE GREAT AWAKENING series (PART 1 and PART 2) are good guides, with countless links for in-depth individual research. This book has been purposely written for this endeavor, while it may also prove to be very helpful for later cross-references. Both books cover a multitude of facets in today's corrupt world, and offer a vast array of solutions for the necessary changes that are going to be needed and implemented.
