Author: Charles G. Finney
The excellent memoirs of Charles G. Finney are published here in their original form: the preface, all thirty-six chapters and the conclusion are included. Charles G. Finney stands as one of the greatest preachers to ever grace the United States. In this book we encounter his life story, told in his own moving and eloquent terms. We journey with the great reverend as he captains revival after revival, preaching the word of God to crowds in great cities and villages alike. His eloquent and conscientious sermons, and support of Christian perfection, appealed to many Americans of the era. An inspiring story honestly told, we witness the spiritual growth of Finney and the lessons he dispensed to congregations far and wide. Eventually Finney would spread his spiritual wisdom to England and Scotland, where he received a warm reception. A leading Presbyterian, it was through tireless campaigning that Finney united many Christians voices against the practice of slavery, which was abolished after the American Civil War. Charles G. Finney's later years were spent as a professor of Oberlin College in Ohio, although he continued to preach well into old age. His final few years saw his physical strength depart him, resulting in a gradually shortening of his lectures. However, drawing on his spiritual devotion, he continued preaching until July of 1875; mere weeks before he joined the Lord the following month. This edition of Charles G. Finney's autobiography derives from a text originally released in 1908, which was itself a slightly revised and corrected printing of the original 1876 edition. Thus readers may gain the full narrative and hear every step of this great man's life.
