Today the Church's hope in respect to her mission of discipling all nations is in eclipse. The world gives Christianity no future and evangelicals themselves doubt whether the cause of Christ can ever attain to a greater triumph before his Second Advent. Many questions are brought to the fore in this book and the author, employing both exposition of Scripture and much historical and biographical material, sets out the case for believing that it is not 'orthodox' to indulge in gloom over the prospect for Christianity in the world.

Date:December 2, 2000
This is a highly uplifting account of the development of revival evangelism as it started in the Puritan movement in Europe and came across the Atlantic to America.The Puritans about whom this book is written were filled with a zeal for the spread of the gospel AND for preserving the integrity of the biblical truths that were brought to light during the reformation.Christ and the apostles made it clear that the gospel would be successful wherever the truth was abided. In this era of theological relativism and "new age" Christianity, it is so good to read historical accounts of times when the church did not resort to the mass marketing techniques, but stuck to biblical truth in its evangelism.Anyone with a sincere interest in evangelism, prophecy and/or church history - especially as it came to America - should make this book high on their list of reading priorities!
