Silhouette of James Caughey, an Irish-born emigrant to the United States who was converted in the times of revival in 1830-31 and soon after ordained to the Methodist ministry. He experienced powerful revivals in Canada but it was his revival labours in Great Britain during the 1840’s, for which he is most well known. This book is a history of the revival he experienced across Britain when he claims to have seen “20,000 profess faith in Christ and 10,000 profess sanctification.” He campaigned in Ireland and England, mainly in Methodist circles, drawing huge crowds wherever he went. He was a powerful preacher who frequently used the ‘word of knowledge’ in his sermons, resulting in great conviction of sin. Among the converts during this campaign was the young William Booth, who professed salvation during Caughey’s Nottingham crusade and immediately took to street preaching.
