In form and function, the modern revival movement is as American as chewing gum and baseball. Lectures on Revivals (1853) is, in its own way, as true a product of Jacksonian democracy as John L. O’Sullivan’s editorials or Emerson’s essays. Expressing the new American pragmatic philosophy, the book became a religious classic and a guide for succeeding generations of revivalists. Its author, originally a lawyer, was one of the nation’s most famous revivalists, and later served as President of Oberlin College.
