This is the conclusion of the Life of Judson. It is from the history of the death of Ann to the death of Adoniram, 1850. It details his translation work, marriage to Sarah Boardman, and after her death, Emily Chubbuck. Also his return trip to Boston.
“As it respects ourselves,” Mrs. Judson writes, “we are busily employed all day long. I can assure you that we find much pleasure in our employment. Could you look into a large, open room, which we call a veranda, you would see Mr. Judson bent over his table, covered with Burman books, with his teacher at his side, a venerable-looking man in his sixtieth year, with a cloth wrapped round his middle, and a handkerchief round his head. They talk and chatter all day long, with hardly any cessation.”
If the Great Awakening was so “great” why was Jonathan Edwards’s the theologian of the revival, dismissed from his own pulpit? An Examination of Charles Hodge’s analysis of The Great Revival. Hodge wrote, “This fact demonstrates that there must have been something wrong in these revivals, even under the eye and guidance of Edwards, from the beginning. There must have been many spurious conversions and much false religion which at the time were regarded as genuine. This assumption is nothing more than the facts demand, nor more than Edwards himself frequently acknowledged.”

This is the stories of two prayer meetings. One was in New York City led by Jeremiah Lanphier, the other in County Antrim Ireland led by James McQuilkin. Both prayer meetings began in September of 1857, but neither knew of the existence of the other. Revival spread greatly from these two prayer gatherings. The class started off with a video from the NYC revival, and due to audio quality and possible copyrights, it was replaced with the narration of the first paragraphs of Samuel Prime’s The Power of Prayer and in an introduction to Jeremiah Lanphier.

The church, though in this deplorable state, was not aware of its condition, but thought all was going on well; it did not know that it was “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” This is surprising and affecting, and shows, in an alarming view, how far self-deception may be carried, especially in the case of those, who, like the members of the church at Laodicea, are much taken up with the enjoyment of worldly prosperity. Let a professor of religion have his mind much occupied with the cares of business, and his affections much engrossed with the objects of sense, and it is astonishing how ignorant and mistaken he may remain as to the real state of his soul.
The book, The Church in Earnest, was a followup book to An Earnest Ministry. It was published in 1850. This chapter is the first part of his exhortations to the churches in Revelation through Thyatira.
From an online Encyclopedia: ” James McGready 1763-1815
In 1793 McGready was ordained by the Orange Presbytery and assigned to the pastorates of the Stony Creek and Haw River Presbyterian churches. n 1796 his pulpit was removed from the Stony Creek church and burned, and a message written in blood was sent to him threatening physical violence unless he changed his preaching emphasis.
