About this item

This book is an engaging look at spiritual awakenings that have
happened in the church throughout history. It examines how
these extraordinary movements of God translate into the larger
cultural analysis of today.

Spiritual awakenings have refreshed the people of God from the
very origins of the church. What about these past movements
can be instructive for the church today? Can we expect God’s
awakening presence in our day? These questions brought about
the “Surprising Work of God Conference” in the fall of 2015 in which
speakers traced awakening movements from the Old and New
Testaments to the present day.

Great Awakenings represents the culmination of this conference as
the collected works of notable speakers. Chapters address questions
about spiritual awakenings through historical, theological, and
sociological lenses. They look at the events that precipitated these
awakenings, evaluating whether their causes were purely religious
or otherwise, and finally suggest what about the awakenings is
normative for the church today. Contributors include:
