Full Description


In 1989, the first complete, restored text of revivalist Charles Finney's memoirs was published by Zondervan. Until then, all editions had reflected editorial liberties introduced in the first 19th-century publication, edited after Finney's death. The restored text-the culmination of over ten years of research by editors Garth Rosell and Richard Dupuis-brought to light Finney's entire memoirs in their original language. Longstanding omissions and inaccuracies were corrected. Comprehensive annotations supplied detailed, phrase-by-phrase and even word-by-word explanations.The 1989 edition was a scholar's and historian's delight. However, the average reader who simply wants to read what Finney wrote doesn't need the scholarly minutiae. This new edition provides the complete, restored text of Finney's memoirs with no unnecessary details to obstruct a straightforward read. In bold, untouched language, Finney's thoughts march across the page with fascinating clarity and cohesiveness. For students of revival or anyone interested in the life of one of America's foremost evangelists, here in his own words is Charles Finney: his life, his thoughts, his struggles and accomplishments, and his abiding love for God and enduring commitment to the gospel of Christ.
