Roberts, Revival Literature no. 1451, where he notes he has only been able to examine Vol. IV. of the series. This periodical was in print from 1845 to 1861. We believe the work had Congregational and Evangelical Union backing - contributors and/or authors recommended include Robert Morison of Bathgate; Alexander Rutherford of Greenock; Ralph Wardlaw; John Little of Glasgow; Robert Peden of Amherstburgh, Canada West; W. G. Moncrieff; John Robertson of St. Ninians; and others.
Includes articles on revival, with reports of revival meetings held by William Telfer and others.
The publishers were attempting to forward the cause of revival, and published many tracts besides this periodical. The Day-Star has contents similar to Christian family magazines of the era.
