Meet the Author

Born in Connecticut in 1792, Finney was nearly thirty years of age before he turned from his skepticism regarding Christianity and wholeheartedly embraced the Bible as the true Word of God. He gave up his law profession in order to spread the Gospel and soon became the most noteworthy revivalist of the nineteenth century Second Great Awakening. In 1835, upon the request of Arthur Tappan, Finney established the theology department at Oberlin Collegiate Institute (today known as Oberlin College). He served there as a professor of theology as well as pastor of Oberlin's First Congregational Church until a few years before his death. In August of 1875, Finney died in Oberlin following a heart ailment.

First Chapter

Chapter 1 How to Start a Revival

Revival is renewed conviction of sin and repen-tance, followed by an intense desire to live in obe-dience to God. It is giving up one's will to God in deep humility. Mr. Finney once visited a factory to see the machinery. Because he had just come from a revi-val, he was in a reverent mood. All of the workers knew who he was. One lady, who saw him as she was working, made a rude comment to her neigh-bor then laughed. Mr. Finney stopped and looked at her with sorrow in his eyes. She stopped working, breaking her thread. She then became so upset that she could not repair the thread and start again. Trying to calm herself, she looked out the window. But, again and again, her emotions got the best of her. Finally she sat down and cried. Mr. Finney then approached her and spoke with her. She soon showed a deep sense of sin. The feeling spread through the establishment like fire, and in a few hours almost every person employed there was under conviction. The feeling was so pervasive that the owner, though a worldly man, was astounded and stopped all work to hold a prayer meeting. In the owner's opinion, it was a great deal more important to have these people converted than to continue production. In a few days, the owner and nearly all the employees (about 3,000) were fully converted. The Lord's rebuke of this woman's comment through Mr. Finney's reverent, yet compassionate, reaction brought her under conviction. Seeing this undoubtedly inspired the massive revival.
