(p.1) Introduction
Early Evangelicalism

Jonathan M. Yeager

Oxford University Press

This book charts the history of early evangelicalism that flourished during the transatlantic revivals of the eighteenth century, coinciding with the emergence of the Enlightenment in America and Europe. As a religious movement, evangelicalism crossed nations and encompassed different traditions within Christianity. The book examines hymns, historical works, poems, political pamphlets, revival accounts, sermons, and theological treatises published by those responsible for the growth of evangelicalism, along with their conversion experiences and diaries that chronicle their spiritual development. It also provides biographical sketches of several important religious figures and presents excerpts from Protestant Christians such as George Whitefield, Samuel Finley, James Robe, Joseph Bellamy, and Jedidiah Morse.

Keywords:   evangelicalism, Christianity, hymns, poems, political pamphlets, sermons, theological treatises, Protestant Christians, George Whitefield, Samuel Finley
