Abstract:

The focus of this classic text is on British and American evangelicals during the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth century, examining the effect of aggressive conversion techniques used by American evangelicals upon the revival movement. The revival tradition ultimately became orthodoxy in America; in Britain, however, it failed ever to achieve realk respectability. Carwardine examines this contrast. This study focuses on those major evangelical denominations, particularly the Methodists, which in both countries provided the primary expression of evangelicalism and which gave it its cutting edge.
