about

This book examines Dwight L. Moody's and Ira D. Sankey's revival in Chicago in 1876. Robertson shows that Chicago in the 1870s was beset by serious economic, political, and social turmoil, reflecting deep-seated ethnic and cultural antipathies. The author uses a statistical analysis of new church members, a content analysis of sermons, and a careful examination of the social and historical data about Chicago to create a fresh interpretation of the social impact and significance of an urban revival.
Darrel M. Robertson (M.Div., Bethel Theological Seminary; Ph.D., University of Iowa) is pastor of the Presbyterian-Congregational UCC Church of Ashland, WI and Associate Professor of History at Northlnd College.

A deceptively modest-looking study, this work offers an important and revealing glimpse of the development of the American urban revival.
