No. 3729 in Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography. "While this volume deals particularly with the work of Elder Jacob Knapp, consideration is given also to Finney, Kirk, Lyman Beecher, Jesse Lee and John Newland Maffitt with some preliminary material on the Great Awakening of 1740."
The author sent a questionnaire to the churches of Boston asking when the revival started in their congregation, how many converted, what instrumentalities were blessed, what special incidents worthy of notice, and if the revival has subsided, what were the causes?
