"'Seasons of Refreshing' has radically changed my understanding of the relationship of evangelism to the revival of believers. It ought to be required in every Bible college and seminary. A most significant book!"
--C. Gordon Olson, author of 'Getting the Gospel Right '
"Surprisingly few authors have ever attempted to tell the story of American revivals in a single, interconnected narrative. Keith Hardman's 'Season of Refreshing'--now in an updated version--is the only recent work on American revivals that covers the entire development from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first century. This readable and well-researched volume shows why revivals have been both influential and controversial in the Christian churches for the last three centuries. It serves as an excellent first book on revivals and revivalism."
--Michael J. McClymond, Clarence Louis and Helen Irene Steber Chair, Department of Theological Studies, Saint Louis University; editor of 'Encyclopedia of Religious Revivals in American' (2006)
"Keith Hardman's 'Seasons of Refreshing' has already been the best one-volume treatment of American religious awakenings and revivals. Now with its republication, it can resume its place as a handbook for pastors and church leaders, and a textbook for college students. Those who want to know more about this vital aspect of American Christianity will find it in 'Seasons', a judicious guide, assembled on the basis of wide reading. The updated version also brings us to our own decade."
