Hughes Oliphant Old's survey of preaching throughout the history of the Christian church has been heralded as a monumental achievement. This fifth volume of Old's history brings the story of preaching up through the eighteenth century, showing how, after the tumultuous age of the Reformation, preaching in the eighteenth century was driven in several very different directions.

The book's first chapter explores moderatism, an inevitable reaction against the high tensions of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. In the second chapter Old discusses pietism, examining the contributions of Philipp Jakob Spener, Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen, John Wesley, George Whitefield, Samuel Davies, and other preachers. The remaining chapters look at preaching in several national, or denominational, schools.
