Although the author was a Baptist, the accounts given here are not limited to Baptist congregations, but to all who experienced revivals during the time noted in the title. “Since 1790, almost every State in America has been blessed with revivals. To embody all that has appeared in various forms since this glorious work commenced would fill many volumes. The writer, therefore, presumes that this small book compiled from numerous accounts of revivals since the commencement of 1815 to 1818, with the addition of some that have not been published, may be acceptable to thousands.” - from the Preface.

Joshua Bradley (1799-1855), native of Randolph, Massachusetts, Baptist minister. He was apprenticed to a shoemaker, and kept a Latin grammar at his work-stand with which he began his studies with the aim of entering college. After graduating at Brown he declined an offer from Isaac Backus to join his ministry in Middleboro, instead becoming co-pastor with Gardiner Thurston in Newport, R. I. His labors were blessed with marked revivals, and he had opportunity to travel extensively promoting revivals in New England.

Number 633 in Roberts, An Annotated Bibliography of Revival Literature. “While rather poorly written and organized, this volume has many choice accounts of divine grace in various eastern states.”
