"We propose to glance at the state of the churches at the time when the revival commenced; to show how it was regarded and treated by different classes; and to speak of its immediate results, in preparing the way for a division among the Congregational churches, and for lapse of a portion of them into Arminianism and Unitarianism." A study of the Great Awakening of the 18th century in the American colonies. The writer argues that those who participated in the Revival were blessed and spiritually strengthened, while those churches who opposed it gradually drifted into error.
