Encyclopedia of religious revivals in America; 2v.

Ed. by Michael McClymond.

Greenwood Press


1178 pages




Religious scholars, historians, and social scientists offer a reference to religious revivals in the US and Canada from the 18th century into the 21st. The first volume contains 227 articles on people, revival events, religious denominations or groups associated with revivals, revival practices or phenomena such as speaking in tongues and radio and television, and themes such as confession and eschatology. The cross-referencing is thorough, and further reading is suggested at the end of each article. The second volume presents 106 primary documents from as far back as 1527 and as late as 2005. The two volumes are paged separately, and each provides a cumulative index, which seems to be the only cross-reference between the volumes.
