$8.00
An autobiography of an authentic Wesleyan evangelist who frequently saw revival signs accompany his ministry.

Benjamin Abbott was born on Long Island, New York, in 1732. He led a pretty wild life falling into a variety of evil ways, until he was converted to Christ and radically transformed in his fortieth year. His initial conviction occurred when he was thirty-three years old when he had two frightening dreams of future punishment, which, though they did not lead him to immediate repentance, came back to him several years afterwards under the influence of an itinerant Methodist preacher. Under extreme conviction he was converted and was compelled to begin preaching the gospel.

As an itinerant Methodist evangelist wonderful conversions of the most hardened characters took place wherever he preached. Often revival signs of deep conviction, tears, swooning and other bodily agitations accompanied his ministry. He has been referred to as "one of the wonders of America, no man's copy, an uncommon zealot for the blessed work of sanctification, who preached it on all occasions and in all congregations."

In Abel Stevens' History of American Methodism, 1867 he writes, "He had a temperament deeply mystic and subject to marvelous experiences which baffle all scientific explanation". Stevens also noted, "His whole soul seemed pervaded by a certain magnetic power that thrilled his discourses and radiated from his person, drawing, melting and frequently prostrating the stoutest opposers in his congregation. It is probable that no Methodist laborer of his day reclaimed more men from abject vice. He seldom preached without visible results, and his prayers were overwhelming".

Abbott died just as the 2nd Great Awakening began to emerge, but he had kept revival embers glowing during the preparatory years.

He died in Salem, New Jersey, 14 August, 1796.
