God Sent Revival: The Story of Asahel Nettleton and the Second Great Awakening
Evangelical Press 1977
Following the Great Awakening under the leadership of such men as Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield, the close of the eighteenth century in America saw a second period of revival which was to last longer than the first. It was brought about through the labors of many preachers, less well known than their predecessors, but following faithfully in their footsteps.
One of the evangelists to emerge from this second period of revival was Asahel Nettleton. There can be little doubt that he was one of the greatest evangelists in the history of the church. Literally thousands were converted under his ministry—and spurious converts were the exception rather than the rule!
This well-written and well-documented book tells the story of Nettleton’s life. He made mistakes, and the author does not cover these up, but he was a powerful preacher who sought to glorify God, and God blessed his ministry.
