The author was English, and probably Primitive Methodist, as we find brief references to him in their publications. He is defending what detractors called "sensationalism" among revival and other meetings, with mention of the good the Salvation Army was doing in spite of opposition. He warns against the "devil's sensationalism," but insists upon a godly sensationalism that accompanies the work of the Holy Spirit in revivals.
