Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography no. 235 "A very stirring account of a man much used by God."

Daniel Baker (1791-1857), "born in Georgia, this southern revivalist gained his formal education at Hampden-Sydney College and at Princeton. While a student at Princeton, he, along with three friends became known as The Religiosi, a group not unlike the Holy Club at Oxford. A revival occurred in which nearly half the student body were converted. As is to be expected, having been once deeply involved in revival, he continued to see deep moving of the Spirit of God in various places where he itinerated. In addition to his travels, Baker also served Presbyterian pastorates and aided in the establishment of Austin College in Huntsville, Texas, serving for some time as its president." - Roberts.
