Item description for Transatlantic Revivalism/s.e.h.t. (Studies in Evangelical History and Thought) (Studies in Evangelical History and Thought) by Richard Carwardine...

The focus of this classic text is on British and American evangelicals during the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth century, examining the effect of aggressive conversion techniques used by American evangelicals upon the revival movement.

"This rich feast of a book establishes itself at once as the path-breaking authority on British-American evangelical Protestantism in the nineteenth century. Richard Carwardine relates the movement to theological change on one side and to the social and economic context on the other. He traces the important interactions between itsBritish and American wings, while giving us a fuller view than we have had of the premier revivalist, Charles Finney..."-Charles Sellers, Emeritus Professor of History, University of California, Berkeley

Richard Carwardine is the Rhodes Professor of American History, St. Catherine's College, University of Oxford.

Publishers Description
Revivalism has always been an important strain in American Protestantism. At times it has been the dominant influence. Often perceived as a home-grown movement, revivalism actually originated in England and has thrived in both countries with the help of two centuries of intellectual cross-pollination. This book focuses on English and American evangelicals during the early and mid-nineteenth century. Examining, first, American revivalism in the crucial state of its development, from the 1790s to the 1840s - when evangelicals used their most aggressive conversion techniques - it goes on to show the significant effects these developments had on the English revival movement. The revival tradition ultimately became orthodoxy in America; in Britain, however, it failed ever to achieve real respectability. Transatlantic Revivalism examines this contrast. It shows how attitudes and institutions in Britain prevented the flowering of an American style revivalism; conversely, particular American conditions allowed Methodism, which in England exerted only limited influence on Protestantism, to become the largest and most thoroughly revivalistic of all Protestant denominations. Church historians have often under-emphasized or deliberately ignored evangelical life; its emotionalism, disorder, and impropriety were an embarrasment to them. More recent historical scholarship has been primarily interested in tracing the secular implications of revivalism. This study focuses on those major evangelical denominations, particularly the Methodists, which in both countries provided the primary expression of evangelicalism and which gave it its cutting edge.
