Awakenings: The First Generation of American Evangelical Christianity

This project will involve 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 1735-1742, that historians have conventionally seen as one of the key moments in American colonial history. Evangelicalism refers to that strain of Protestant Christianity that heavily emphasizes each individual’s experience of being spiritually "born again." Strangely, there is no contemporary book detailing the history of the entire Awakening, or of early North American evangelicalism. This project seeks to fill that significant gap. It will be published as a book with Yale University Press.
