A very attractively preserved work consistent with the theologically and experimentally driven emphases of the Second Great Awakening. 

Perhaps no one embodied those ideals more productively than Charles Backus. A graduate of Yale, he pastored at Somers, Connecticut and there began an institution that would shape New England Christianity for the next 50 years. He began the Somers School of the Prophets, designed to train young pastors and evangelists with robust theological training and plenty of hands-on opportunities to preach in neighboring villages, etc., These were exclusively "New Divinity," i.e. connected to the revivalist movement, and spread from there to form branches in New Haven, Goshen, and more. Graduates from his program went on to preach, form churches, and become the Presidents of other institutions, i.e. Hamilton, Amherst, Williams, and Middlebury. 

The present work was published just three years before his death.
