“For the earnest Christian, there are few more encouraging times than the eighteenth century in which God worked so mightily. Perhaps one of the greatest encouragements is to see how bad the times were just before the Spirit of God broke in upon our land. We are sometimes tempted to believe that things are so bad in our day that it just would not be possible to see a great work of God. In some ways things were worse then, but God’s people made the discovery that there is nothing too hard for the Lord. The speed in which the Revival took off, and began to blaze all over the land is quite breathtaking. In a day when many professing Christians know little of these things, such a book as this needs to be read.
