This volume provides a comprehensive, thematic survey of the leading traits of worldwide evangelicalism between the 1850s and the 1890s.
The discussion covers such topics as commonalities across denominational diversity; expression of faith in spirituality, worship, mission and social involvement; the legacy of the Enlightenment and the influence of Romanticism; and theological trends.
The book argues that the movement was marked by a strong sense of global unity. It surveys a range of the era's best-known figures, including Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Dwight L. Moody, Ira D. Sankey, Lord Shaftesbury, David Livingstone, George Miller, Andrew Murray, James Hudson Taylor, and William and Catherine Booth.
