  • The biography of the little-known evangelist Asahel Nettleton follows the journey of the New England minister of the law. Nettleton formed an integral part of the Second Great Awakening in the United States during the end of the eighteenth century. His ministry led to the conversion of thousands, but in a very unique manner. He would not enter a church or village and proclaim grace. Rather, he would continually preach about sin, wrath, and judgment to come. Only after the congregation fell into deep conviction and came pleading for help or mercy, would Nettleton proclaim the free grace of Christ. His methods were not designed to draw crowds or to fill coffers, but were rather designed to drive men and women to Christ. The converts to Christianity came not because of comfort, blessing, walking an aisle, or praying a prayer. These converts believed because they had come under serious conviction of sin and sought the grace of Christ alone. The methods of Nettleton serve as a practical rejoinder to the methods used in churches today. Though a tedious read and full of theological challenges for the reader, the biography draws the reader to the conviction that true revival has been missing for far too long.

  • So this book is about Asahel Nettleton and his ministry of preaching in the first half of the 19th century. Honestly I had never heard of the guy until one of our pastors mentioned him quite accidentally. Growing up in northeast Ohio, home of Oberlin College, I had heard of Charles Finney and considered him most likely not even a Christian given how far he fled from clear truths in the Scripture, but I never knew there was someone who preceded him who was faithful to the Gospel and saw enormous fruit in his evangelism.

    The book is worth reading for that knowledge alone. I'm not a church history buff, but I did enjoy learning these things and coming to understand how Yale went from being a solid divinity school to what it is today. It is well written and I appreciated how the short chapters kept me wanting more. I finished the book in about a week without trying very hard, and I am unfortunately a slow reader.

    If you can get a copy of this book reasonably I don't think you will be disappointed.
