During the first half of the 1800's, the population of the United States grew from 5 to 30 million, and the boundary of the nation moved ever westward. Revivals became the primary means of Christianizing the growing and expanding population. These revivals at the beginning of the 19th century became known as the Second Great Awakening.

The 29-year-old lawyer Charles Grandison Finney had decided he must settle the question of his soul's salvation. So on October 10, 1821, he headed out into the woods near his Adams, NY, home to find God. "I will give my heart to God, or I never will come down from there," he said.
After several hours, he returned to his office, where he experienced such forceful emotion that he questioned those who could not testify to a similar encounter. The next morning, Finney returned to his law office to meet with a client whose case he was about to argue. "I have a retainer from the Lord Jesus Christ to plead his cause," he told the man, "and cannot plead yours."
And so began the new career of the man who would become the leading revivalist in the 19th century.
Finney is called the "father of modern revivalism" by some historians, and he paved the way for later mass-evangelists like Dwight L. Moody, Billy Sunday, and Billy Graham.
Power point presentation #2 is entitled, Religion - Key Figures - Charles Finney and contains 17 slides and covers the following:
