Each generation of believers has been influenced by those who came before them. By reading books from the past, we're encouraged to thank God for faithful Christians who defended the truth and spurred the church on to love and obey God—and we see how important it is to carefully guard the pure gospel for the next generation.
This collection brings together some hand-picked highlights of the 19th century, introducing you to the books, missionaries, theologians, and pastors that shaped evangelicals.
Half a century after the First Great Awakening, revival sprang up again in the United States—a period known as the Second Great Awakening, which lasted until about 1840. The 19th century was also a time of great missionary activity, including the ministries of Hudson Taylor, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton. Other key pastors of this century who've had a lasting impact include Charles Spurgeon and J. C. Ryle, while in the political realm, William Wilberforce fought for the abolition of slavery.
