Item description for Cambridge And The Evangelical Succession: William Grimshaw, John Berridge, Henry Venn, Charles Simeon by Marcus Loane...

Overview
These are the stories of five key ministers of the 18th and 19th centuries who changed the whole spirit of the Church of England - and whose influence is still seen today. Each one of these men was associated with Cambridge University. William Grimshaw (1708-1763) Christ's College, was a friend of John Wesley who was one of the first leaders of the 18th century revival. He frequently had 1200 worshippers at his church in Haworth (most outside the building!). Even the modern day Poet Laureate, Ted Hughes, felt his influence. John Berridge (1716-1793) Clare College was influenced by Grimshaw and became known as the 'Pedlar of the Gospel' after refusing to obey his Bishop who said he should NOT be preaching to the people in the fields. Henry Venn (1725-1797) Queen's College was also a leader in the Evangelical Revival and the 'spiritual father' of the Clapham Sect of Social reformers, which included William Wilberforce's campaign against slavery. He was also the mentor to Charles Simeon* (1759-1836) Kings College, a founder of the Church Missionary Society and a key consultant for the East India Company on their choice of chaplains, one of whom was his curate, Henry Martyn (1781-1812) St Johns College. Martyn, a brilliant linguist, became a missionary in India and Persia (now Iran) and in 5 years translated the Bible into Urdu and Persian. He also wrote three tracts for Muslim's that are still used today as examples of the best way to interact with Muslims. He died aged only 31 and is remembered by the formation of the Henry Martyn Centre for study of mission and World Christianity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cambridge And The Evangelical Succession: William Grimshaw, John Berridge, Henry Venn, Charles Simeon?

Fine work  Jan 18, 2008
I found this book to be very helpful. I am very interested in the 18th century evangelical movement in England - especially contemporaries of John Newton - and this is a great addition to my growing collection. It is difficult to find books on Grimshaw and Berridge. After purchasing this work, I also bought the companion book by Loane "Oxford and the Evangelical Succession" which discusses Whitefield, Newton, Scott, Cecil, and Wilson. Both are worth the price.
