The Next Great Awakening
Author Terry D. Slachter
The author begins the book with an important introduction explaining what an awakening is while making an important distinction between it and "revivalism". The author suggests that general awakenings or a great awakenings historically develop within five progressive stages.
As the reader works through each day, they will find brief historical snap-shots and moving biographies of people and events surrounding the Second Great Awakening. The reader will also develop a new understanding and appreciation of the many Bible passages which promise spiritual and moral revival in any age until Christ returns.
The author includes reflection questions, a prayer, and a daily Bible reading for each of the 41 days. There are also practical suggestions on how to establish prayer groups among pastors, church members, and even among fellow Christians living in the same cities or geographical areas.
