Synopsis

Reviving the Heart The Story of the Eighteenth Century Revival by Richard Turnbull

The English Revival of the eighteenth century was an exciting time. What caused the Revival? Why did it spread? Did it prevent a revolution in the UK, similar to that which had convulsed France? And what effect did it have, both locally, nationally and globally? This fascinating book introduces the reader to its main players: the Wesleys and Whitefield, John Newton and William Wilberforce. It brings together what they believed, what they taught, and the immense impact they had on the people of the UK, both the rich and the poor. Out of the Revival came the Clapham Sect and the successful campaign to end slavery; the Methodist church and a new role for women.
