"Three things have led to the preparation of this volume. 1. The obvious need of a fresh work on Revivals of religion. 2. A deep and earnest conviction of the momentous importance of the subject discussed. 3. The wish to furnish, both for inspiration and guidance, such facts, examples, arguments, directions and suggestions, touching the matter of revivals, as might lead to their greater appreciation and promotion." - from the Preface.
