Awakenings in America and the Jesus People Movement

After describing America's great awakenings and examining both their 'good' and 'bad' sides, Kent Philpott argues that America has experienced four not three awakenings. It is acknowledged that the first outpouring was from c.1734 to c. 1742, the second from c. 1798 to c. 1835, and the third from c. 1857 to c. 1859.
