Episode 93 is the third and final episode dedicated to reading an account of the 1857 Revivals as taken from the article “Prayer Revivals and the Third Great Awakening” published in the Evangelical Review of Theology in January 2007.
The role which 1850’s technology played in the spread of the revival was very important. The telegraph and the steamship allowed the news of the revival to spread across a country and across oceans.
