This is the fourth in a series intended to cover the history of the Christian church through its people and key events. They are written with 9-14 year olds in mind but the modern, relaxed and enthusiastic style is infectious.
This volume spans the years from 1700 to 1860. Chapters highlight the lives of Jonathan Edwards, Johann Sebastian Bach, John Wesley, William Wilberforce, William Carey, Elizabeth Fry, Liang Fa, Adoniram and Ann Judson, Fidelia Fiske, Sojourner Truth and Harriet Beecher Stowe, and David Livingstone. Additional background features include: Awakening Church Timeline; What was the Awakening Church?; The Development of Church Music; An Era of Social Reform; Revolutions and Rebellions; A New Method of Missions; The Rise of Protestant Denominations; Other Christians of the Awakening Church; and The Beginnings of the Modern World.
