"It is believed that the thrilling accounts of revival scenes that will be found here, will give the book a lasting place in every family it once enters." - from the Explanatory Address.

The author was pastor of the Congregational Church in Claremont. He wanted to write a complete church history of New Hampshire, and sent and received over 800 letters in collecting the information required. It is composed along the lines of a gazetteer, with each town in every county listed, and giving a religious history of the town. It is a very detailed account. The Indices list the nine counties, and then the hundreds of towns, followed by an index of minister's names. Then there is an index of miscellanies, with entries such as Cage for sleepers in meeting; Business easy in a revival; Kneeland's paper and influence; Anecdote of stoves in the church; Come-out-ism; Whitefield and Randall; &c.
