Rather rare on the market, this particular volume noted for its detailed work on the spread of the Cane Ridge Revival from Kentucky to surrounding states.
An extraordinary phenomenon has lately appeared . . . it is that of people of different denominations meeting together to the amount of about two or three thousand at one time; and many of them exhibiting signs of the most uncommon spiritual distress...This began in Kentucky; and it is now spreading in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey . . .
Discusses 1000 people being "prostrated" by the Spirit, etc.,
The New York Missionary Magazine and Repository of Religious Intelligence for the Year 1803. New York. Printed by William Vermilye, for Cornelius Davis. 1803. 241pp [i.e. 250-491pp.]
An important early missionary, evangelical, and revivalist periodical, this would be the last year it was issued. As the Second Great Awakening swelled, it was decided that the Connecticut Evangelical Magazine and the Massachusetts Missionary Magazine were overlapping with the New York Missionary Magazine and substantively delivering a similar experience. Cornelius Davis, the publisher commended both for their excellent orthodox content, and wishes his readers to subscribe to them.
