The Great Awakening in Nova Scotia 1776-1809 Hardcover -- published 1948
The Great Awakening or First Great Awakening was an evangelical and revitalization movement that swept Protestant Europe and British America, especially the American colonies, in the 1730s and 1740s, leaving a permanent impact on American Protestantism.
I was just talking to my mother about what is going on in the world... and what I'm writing about. (She has been very in-tune with what is going on. She was a teacher and has her Masters in English. This was the first election she didn't vote Republican. It saddened her deeply to see Ms. DeVos put in charge of education. )
Anyway, when I explained what I'm writing about, she smiled at me and said, "That was the topic of your grandfather's PhD and book. And, it is why we moved to Pennsylvania."
I learn something new everyday. Thank God for public education.
