Finney’s Lectures on Revivals of Religion not only remains one of his most well-known works, but also captures the spirit of the Second Great Awakening. These lectures both reflected and shaped the sentiments of the nineteenth century church in America, and prompted not only broad acceptance and implementation, but also impassioned criticism. This volume prescribes the structure of religious revival—how to prepare for and conduct a revival—and thrusts the evangelism efforts of the church to the forefront, where they remain to this day. Finney also gave emotion a prominent place in the worship and practice of Christianity.

“2. Prayer, to be effectual, must be in accordance with the revealed will of God.” (Page 47)

“If Christians have deep feeling on the subject of religion themselves, they will produce deep feeling wherever they go. And if they are cold, or light and trifling, they inevitably destroy all deep feeling, even in awakened sinners.” (Page 17)

“By his providential government, he so arranges events as to bring the sinner’s mind and the truth in contact. He brings the sinner where the truth reaches his ears or his eyes.” (Page 15)

“You see why you have not a revival. It is only because you don’t want one. Because you are not praying for it, nor anxious for it, nor putting forth efforts for it.” (Page 32)

“3. To pray effectually, you must pray with submission to the will of God. Don’t confound submission with indifference” (Page 48)

Charles Grandison Finney

Charles G. Finney (1792–1875) was a widely popular evangelist, organizing and preaching at numerous revivals and meetings throughout New England. Finney studied law, but after a dramatic conversion experience at age 29, his plans changed.

Finney became pastor of the Free Presbyterian Chatham Street Chapel and later the Broadway Tabernacle. He traveled and spoke around New England and England and as many as one million people heard Finney preach. Finney often spoke about social issues and was involved with the abolitionist movement. In 1835, Finney was appointed as a professor of theology at Oberlin College and became its president in 1851 where he remained until 1866.

The Charles Finney Collection (6 vols.) includes all of Finney’s lectures on revivals, including his Lectures on Revivals of Religion and two volumes of his sermons, including Sermons on Important Subjects and Sermons on Gospel Themes.

    I have a physical copy of the Fleming H. Revell reprint from the late 1970s - early 1980s that features copious biographical and historical footnotes throughout. Be aware that the Logos version does not have any of these very helpful notes.
