Inventing the "Great Awakening"
Frank Lambert

Book Description | Table of Contents

ENDORSEMENT:

"Lambert successfully shows that the notion of a North Atlantic 'Great Awakening,' including a 'great work' in the American colonies, was 'invented' during the period 1735-45, rather than with the publication of Joseph Tracy's The Great Awakening a century later, as some recent historians have suggested. The book is outstanding in tracing down and summarizing the wealth of pro- and anti-revivalist literature of this period. Its treatment of anti-revival works is the most nearly complete of any book on the colonial revivals."--Mark Noll, Wheaton College
