The First Generation of American Evangelical Christianity

This project involves research on the “First Great Awakening” and American evangelical Christianity during the eighteenth century. The First Great Awakening was a massive upsurge of religious interest and conversions, centered in the years 1735-1745, that historians have conventionally seen as one of the key moments in American colonial history, and American religious history generally. Strangely, there is no one contemporary book detailing the history of the entire Awakening, or of early North American evangelicalism. This project seeks to fill this significant gap. It will be published as a book, and is already under contract with Yale University Press.
