Jenks, Francis, [editor]. The Christian Examiner and Theological Review Vol. IV. Boston: Bowles & Dearborn, 1827. First Edition. [5638]

Quarter calf with marbled boards, front detached, rear outer hinge filled with paste and probably weak, spine crazed. 5 1/2 x 9 inches, recent former owner's signaure on ffep, vii., 540 clean pp., text block cracked at center. Fair. Hardcover.

This volume contains reviews of several books and pamphlets on the revivals recently begun by Charles Finney, and has intelligence from different towns and villages on the revivals taking place at that time. "We feel compelled at last, though it is with extreme reluctance, to call the attention of our readers to the extravagances committed of late, in various parts of our country, under the abused name of Revivals of Religion." - p. 242-3.

"The Christian Examiner, which began publication in 1824 and continued for nearly a half-century while undergoing many title changes, was one of the most important Unitarian publications, counting many Harvard University faculty and alumni as contributors." - Lippy, Religious Periodicals of the United States, p. xii.

The editor is unnamed but we find Mr. Jenks listed as the editor between 1826 and 1831 in Cooke, Unitarianism in America, p. 101.
