John Wolfe provides an authoritative account of evangelicalism from the 1790s to the 1840s, making extensive use of primary sources. Wolfe skillfully balances British and American developments and also discusses Canada, Australia, the West Indies and other places.An account of the impact of revivalism is followed by discussion of spirituality and worship, and the place of evangelicalism in the lives of women, men and the family. The book then explores the movement's broader social and political effects, giving particular attention to the slavery question. Major figures are surveyed alongside other fascinating, lesser-known personalities. The concluding coverage of the 1846 London meeting of the Evangellical Alliance contributes key insights into the movement as a whole.A compelling book, rich in detail, that will excite history buffs, students and professors, and any reader interested in the development of evangelicalism.Table of ContentsAcknowledgmentsAbbreviations1.
