Item description for Evangelical Anglicans in a Revolutionary Age, 1789-1901 by Nigel Scotland...
Overview The nineteenth century has often been termed a "revolutionary age" on account of the rapid and radical changes which took place in industry and transport, housing and public health, science and technology, education and social life. Religion also played an important part in this revolutionary age. In particular evangelical Christianity shaped the Victorian years. From Parliament where they were represented by William Wilberforce, the Clapham Sect, Lord Shaftesbury and an increasing number of bishops, right down to the poor on whose behalf they campaigned unceasingly, evangelicals began to influence every level of society.Despite the significance of this age for evangelical Anglicans, surprisingly little has been written. Evangelical Anglicans in a Revolutionary Age seeks to restore the balance. Based on a wide range of primary sources-sermons, tracts, private correspondence, newspapers, and journals-Nigel Scotland presents an extensive study of life in this era. Evangelical Anglicans and social action, theology, education, culture, politics, and mission are dealt with. Particular attention is also given to prominent individuals such as Charles Simeon, John Sumner, Spencer Perceval, and Josephine Butler in this extensive study that celebrates the rising number of Evangelical Anglicans in the revolutionary age.

A good introduction to Evangelical Anglicans Sep 9, 2008
This is a very readable introduction to Evangelical Anglicans from the time of Wesley to World War I. I read it because I wanted to understand who Evangelical Anglicans were. I was under the impression that all the Evangelicals left the Church of England at the death of Wesley, but I was wrong. Many pastors and preachers were converted around the same time as Wesley but remained within the Church of England where they had a transforming effect upon Victorian society. Nigel Scotland discusses their origins, theology, social agendas, and spirituality.
