A very early imprint of a revivalist classic.

Lorenzo Dow [1777-1834] was the most popular preacher of his era, preaching to more people than any other in the world. His autobiography was, for years, only outsold by the Bible. He typified the Second Great Awakening period; he was a loud, searching, physical preacher and almost single-handedly invented what we today think of as the "camp-meeting," revivalist, or Pentecostal style of preaching. He is often credited with having introduced camp meetings to America after his association with the Primitive Methodists in the UK. Adding to all of this, he reported in graphic detail accounts of personal dreams and visions from God . . . undoubtely, he was the most popular iteration of the more charismatic elements of the Cane Ridge revival, etc.
