The 1857 Hamilton, Ontario Revival
An Exploration of the Origins of the Layman’s Revival and the Second Great Awakening
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"King here uncovers and analyzes a key episode in the great 1857 Revival--the Canadian connection--that's been forgotten, minimized, or hidden in footnotes. Her accessible work both answers some questions and raises others, pointing the way for further research. This story will interest laypeople; pastors; theologians; local, church, and social historians; and students of Holiness Movements."
--Paul Fayter, Historian of Victorian Science and Theology
"Through an examination of important primary sources, especially the writings of Phoebe Palmer, King provides a helpful study of a little-known event in southern Ontario religious and social history. Those interested in transnational evangelical revivalism will especially be interested in Hamilton's possible role in the birth and spread of mid-nineteenth century evangelical revivals."
--Gordon L. Heath, Associate Professor of Christian History, Director, Canadian Baptist Archives, McMaster Divinity College
