Converted southerners were starkly individualistic, interested more in gaining personal salvation in a hopelessly evil world than in improving society.
As Boles shows in this landmark study, the effect of the Revival was to throw over the region a conservative cast that remains dominant in contemporary southern thought and life. Boles is William P. Hobby Professor of History at Rice University.
This study of the Great Revival is based on meticulous and critical research. Boles seeks to understand the theology of the preachers, their methods of arousing an audience to emotional frenzy, and the effects of the revival on the Southern mind. The heart of the book consists of ten beautifully written chapters on each phase and aspect of revivalism from theology and worship to denominational relations, hymnology, and political and economic thought.
