Spiritual awakenings have refreshed the people of God from the very origins of the church. What forms of vitality have the spiritual awakenings produced in the Old Testament and the new Testament; the First Great Awakening of Edwards and Whitefield; the Second Great Awakening of Finney and the Methodists; the ministries of Moody, Sunday, and Graham; the Azusa Street Revival and global Pentecostalism and the resurgence of Christianity in South America, Africa, and China? What can be learned from the great movements of spiritual awakening throughout history that can be instructive for the church today?
This book proposal seeks to address these questions historically, theologically, and sociologically. In large part, the book will be based upon documents taken from a conference held in October 2015 at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, entitled, The Surprising Work of God: Can We Expect God's Awakening Presence Today? Plenary speakers included Dr. Walter Kaiser, Dr. Adrian Weimer, Dr. George Marsden, Dr. James Singleton, Dr. Grant Wacker, Dr. Ed Stetzer, and Dr. Timothy Tennent.
