Contents The contest over the Great Awakening / Thomas S. Kidd -- Documents. Jonathan Edwards and the 1735 Northampton revival ; George Whitefield : the grand Itinerant ; Revivals, conversions, and spiritual experiences ; Defining the boundaries of the Great Awakening ; Evangelicals in the South ; Separatists, Baptists, and religious liberty.
Summary Thomas Kidd's introduction relies on recent scholarship to describe three contemporary views of the revivals: those of radicals in favor of them, moderates supporting them, and antirevivalists attacking them. The views and experiences of these participants and critics emerge through nearly 40 documents organized into topical sections.--From publisher description.
