The Emergence of Evangelical Spirituality : The Age of Edwards, Newton, and Whitefield Hardback
by Tom Schwanda
Part of the The Classics of Western Spirituality (TM) series
Offers a unique collection of primary sources for eighteenth-century Evangelical spirituality in America and Britain, along with introduction and commentary, prepared by a prominent scholar of Evangelical theology. The Emergence of Evangelical Spirituality offers readers a balanced collection of primary sources for eighteenth-century evangelical spirituality in America and Britain.
Beginning with a chapter that introduces readers to the foundational nature and themes of evangelical spirituality, the book goes on to present the writings of several authors-some very well-known, others not so well-known-grouped into six thematic categories.
From giants of the movement such as Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield to social reformers William Wilberforce and Hannah More and such hymn writers as William Cowper, The Emergence of Evangelical Spirituality presents an invaluable and unequalled treasury of authors representing a rich heritage of American and British spirituality for students and general readers alike.
