Most historical studies stop at or before, the Moody & Sankey Revival of 1873-74. It is commonly assumed that very few genuine revivals occurred since that date until the Lewis Revival of 1949-53. Tom Lennie thoroughly debunks this idea showing that religious awakenings were relatively common in Scotland between these dates and provides a comprehensive account of the many exciting revivals that have taken place throughout Scotland."@en ;
