    Reviving the Heart

    The Story of the Eighteenth Century Revival

    The fascinating story of the origins, development, and influence of the 18th-century revival

    The English Revival of the eighteenth century was an exciting time. What caused the revival? Why did it spread? Did it prevent a revolution in the United Kingdom, similar to that which had convulsed France? And what effect did it have locally, nationally, and globally?

    This fascinating book introduces the reader to that revival's main players: the Wesleys and Whitefield, John Newton, and William Wilberforce. It brings together what they believed, what they taught, and the immense impact they had on the people of the United Kingdom, both rich and poor. Out of the revival came the Clapham Sect, along with the successful campaign to end slavery; the establishment of the Methodist church; and a new role for women.

    This book will interest and delight both the expert and those coming to the history of the revival for the first time.
