The History and Analysis of American Evangelicalism from 1750 to 1858 Comment
"True Revival" is a classic in the field of church history research. It not only records the past of the church, but is also the key to the contemporary evangelical movement and its deep-seated needs. Every Christian today who desires the revival of the church should read this book. ——Fugesen (Professor of Systematic Theology at Redeemer Theological Seminary/Author of "On the Rock" and "On the Sun")
Based on historical facts, this book analyzes the American evangelical revival movement in the 18th and 19th centuries, and points out how to distinguish between "real revival" and "revival movement," and the significant impact of this difference on the church today. This is a masterpiece of studying the history of the revival movement, a wake-up call to people’s hearts, and a must-read book for the revival of the church! ——Lu Peiyuan (Doctor of Westminster Theological Seminary)
I have read the original English book "True Revival", and I have benefited a lot. Whether in theological orthodoxy or historical objectivity, this book is a classic. The real "revival" is always "God's miraculous work", not from the various "revival" caused by man-made manipulation and propaganda. The common denominator of "revival" is: "believe that God is always faithful in his words, believe that Christ has risen from the dead, and believe that the Holy Spirit has been given to ensure that God's kingdom will continue to expand"; and the artificial "revival" It is "emotional and manipulative." The real revival represents "thought", the discovery and return of truth, and it is ultimately implemented in the change of life and the increase of virtue. Therefore, the real revival comes from the powerful downfall of the Holy Spirit, which enables people to truly confess their sins and repentance, and make the world around them "integrally change."The Chinese church is experiencing a real "rejuvenation", but there are also various forms of artificial "resurrection." I only hope that the publication of the Chinese translation of Mr. Murray’s book can help the Chinese church to identify what is meant by real “revival” and artificial “rejuvenation”. In the fire of revival, it can have a fiery aspiration and at the same time keep its head calm and clear. , Eliminate all kinds of copycat versions of "Renaissance" and "Christianity", so that the Chinese church and society will be more enlightened and blessed by the truth! ——Wang Zhiyong (President of Yahebo Covenant College in Hong Kong/Senior Pastor of Christ Church in the United States)
Is "deciding to believe in the Lord" the same as repentance and conversion? Is the revival emotional? Is the revival man-made? Can revival be copied? A true revival will surely bring about a change in life and an increase in virtue. Therefore, the real revival comes from the powerful downfall of the Holy Spirit, which enables people to truly confess their sins and repentance, and make the world around them "integrally change."
Ian Murray analyzed the revival movement that appeared in most sects in the United States from 1750 to 1858, and used a lot of historical facts to infer the difference between revival and revival. Help readers to get rid of the falsehood and keep the truth and realize the real revival.
