"Lambert successfully shows that the notion of a North Atlantic 'Great Awakening, ' including a 'great work' in the American colonies, was 'invented' during the period 1735-45, rather than with the publication of Joseph Tracy's "The Great Awakening" a century later, as some recent historians have suggested. The book is outstanding in tracing down and summarizing the wealth of pro- and anti-revivalist literature of this period. Its treatment of anti-revival works is the most nearly complete of any book on the colonial revivals."--Mark Noll, Wheaton College

Frank Lambert is Associate Professor of History at Purdue University and the author of "Pedlar in Divinity": George Whitefield and the Transatlantic Revivals. 1737-1770 (Princeton).
"Lambert has written an important book for students of American religious and cultural history... [His] straightforward, non-sensational history makes a good case for 'great awakenings' in New England and several middle colonies before 1750 and marks a helpful turn in the debate about the real meaning of Joseph Tracy's Great Awakening."--Jon Butler, American Historical Review "Exceptionally well written and adequately documented... This is an important contribution to the debate."--Kenneth G. C. Newport, Theological Book Review "Lambert's work is synthetic in the best sense of the word, allowing us to see fully the contours of the revivals as they emerged in the public's eye... Lambert focuses squarely on this question and thus revivifies the language through which people described and explained what they thought was happening to them. His judiciousness in this matter should be a model to us all."--Philip F. Gura, Reviews of American History "Frank Lambert provides a surprising narrative of the awakening that is well written, thoroughly researched, and rich in implication... A brief review cannot do justice to this excellent work."--Michael J. McClymond, Journal of Religion "Replete with tables outlining revival events and publications, Lambert's book is a highly accessible account for specialists and nonspecialists alike. His attention to the importance of print, his appreciation of the role of transatlantic revival networks, and his sensitivity to the nuances of cultural 'invention' make this a model of historical scholarship."--Peter J. Thuesen, The Catholic Historical Review
