The Fire Divine: An Introduction to the Evangelical Revival
David Ceri Jones
The evangelical revival of the eighteenth century was a renewal movement of international proportions. It had its origins in Europe, affected each of the nations of the British Isles and set many of the American colonies ablaze during the 1740s. It sought to reinvigorate a flagging Protestantism with a new stress on individual conversion, small-group spirituality, community revivals and practical Christianity. David Ceri Jones offers a lively, accessible and informative introduction to its roots and main events, personalities and ideas, and assesses its wider impact.
