Abstract:

Revivals are sometimes classed among movements that are due to ignorance, fanaticism, and unhealthy imitation. The story of Scottish revivals is inspiring for the role played by men of scholarship, wisdom, and prudence, and does much to remove the prejudice. Describing the effects of the revival in Easter Ross about the middle of the eighteenth century, Hugh Miller wrote that they were felt "for more than eighty years after. There were few dwellings, however humble, in which regularly as the day rose and set, family worship was not kept; and in the course of an evening walk, the voice of Psalms might be heard from almost every hamlet." What Hugh Miller wrote of his native district could be said of many another place during the long history of revivals in Scotland. - Publisher.
