Christianity TodayCharles Finney: American Revivalism
His peculiar revisions of New England Calvinism invited the label of "Pelagian" from colleagues. Charismatic, fiery preaching caused many to question the validity of any appeal to emotion. His leadership of Oberlin College, an institution of social reform, inspired accusations of being a radical. These controversial claims and much more will be uncovered and discussed in Christian History & Biography's look at Charles Finney, the father of American Revivalism.
