Hearts and Hands
Chronicles of the Awakening Church
Starting with the stories of the gifted preachers who led the first and second Great Awakenings of the 18th and 19th centuries, this 4th volume of the History Lives series shows how the Christian church began to expand its offers of mercy to the world around us.
For the first 1700 years of church history, Christ’s people had worked to define Christian teachings and secure their freedom to worship. Now they began to see, in a new way, how the power of the gospel should alter their hearts and actions towards their fellow-man. Hearts and Hands tells this beautiful part of the story.
Let history come to life – just the way it should do! Read the stories of the gifted preachers and justice fighters who led the 1st & 2nd Great Awakenings in the 18th and 19th centuries. Meet the American preacher who started a national revival in his tiny church. Spend time with the wealthy English politician and the former American slave woman who helped abolish slavery in their countries.

For the first 1700 years of the church, God’s people had worked to define Christian teachings and secure their freedom to worship.
