The autobiography of Charles Finney was published after his death at the request of his friends and family. In the Memoirs of Rev. Charles G. Finney, Finney recounts his childhood years and the story of his conversion, and includes lengthy accounts of numerous revivals in which he participated. These memoirs offer a rare window into Finney’s own theological exploration and the development of his doctrine. In a series of personal revelations, he comes to grips with his own popularity and becomes aware of his responsibility for the emergence of revivalism as one of the traits of authentic Christianity.
