Lectures on Revivals of Religion
A Series of Lectures on Revival in the Old and New Testament and in History
By W.R. Downing
These “Lectures on Revival” were given, first, to define revival and distinguish it from modern “revivalism”. Second, to trace the history of God’s gracious dealings with His people and with unconverted sinners throughout the history of Christianity – to review for this generation what has been largely hidden or forgotten of the dealings of God with men. Third, to encourage God’s people to pray that God might once again “bare His mighty right arm and make His power known” in sending His Spirit in true revival and spiritual awakening.
