McIlvaine contrasts the genuine revival he experienced when a student at Princeton in the 1810's with the "perversions" of the revivals promoted by "revival preachers' [Finney, et al] during the 1830's. He then describes the Revival then taking place in 1858 and delineates the positive features of it, followed by some warnings.
Charles Pettit McIlvaine (1799-1873), American Episcopal bishop; twice Chaplain of the United States Senate. From 1825 to 1827, McIlvaine served as chaplain and professor of ethics at the United States Military Academy at West Point, where his students included Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. He served as professor and as president in various institutions. He was a leading advocate of Evangelicalism, and wrote a noted rebuttal of the Oxford Movement. He was the 28th bishop consecrated in The Episcopal Church.
"Bishop McIlvaine was so highly respected internationally (for his opposition to the Catholic-leaning Oxford movement within the Episcopal Church) that, shortly after the outbreak of the Civil War, President Lincoln asked him to go to England to argue against British recognition of the Confederacy. He often had coffee at Buckingham Palace, lunched with faculty members at Oxford, conversed with cabinet members, and influenced debate in the House of Commons." - Wikipedia.
