The Great Revival in the West - Catherine Cleveland - ebook

$11.00
This is probably one of the most comprehensive and insightful studies of the Great Western Revival, sometimes called the Kentucky Revival, which occurred between the years 1797 and 1805.

The story is presented in the context of the general social and economic conditions of life in those days and describes how this revival affected the moral tone of the region, the denominations of the West and the general religious life of the American nation. Much attention is given to the extraordinary physical manifestations and unusual emotional features which characterised this revival.

Sometimes these were experienced by individuals, either men, women or children and at other times whole families, or entire congregations were affected at once.

Ministers, laypersons and scoffers alike were moved by the strange power. These divine visitations occurred in meeting houses, fields, roadsides, schools, homes and bedrooms. These manifestations are considered on physiological and psychological grounds. Since it was in this revival that camp-meetings originated, the character of the early meetings merits attention.
