The volume contains what he believe to be a perfectly accurate history of the origin and progress of a prayer-meeting, held daily for years in the Old South Chapel of Boston, Massachusetts...[it is] one of the most famous and influential unions for prayer held in the United States, in connection with the 'revival.'" - from the Introduction.

Includes dozens of conversion accounts which took place during the revival, and reprints the records of the first six meetings of the prayer society at the Old South Church, as well as accounts of the Revival.
