This is a 21 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Religion - The Third Great Awakening. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
By 1820 it seemed that the Second Awakening was waning; yet within a few years it had sprung to life under the ministry of Charles Finney. His enormous success inspired a large number of “professional evangelists” to come to the fore from the ranks of every major denomination.
By 1840, the concept of large campaigns led by preachers who were not pastors of specific churches was generally accepted. From 1840 until the 1870s, numerous preachers entered the ranks of traveling evangelists.
Despite all this, the religious life of America was in decline from 1840 to 1860. Many causes were responsible, primarily the Anger over the issue of slavery in both the North and South that had reached fever pitch, and hatreds boiled.
The presentation covers the following:
Spiritual Life in Decline
Financial Panic of 1857
Civil War Coming Soon
U. S. Prayer Meetings
Stock Market Crash of 1857
Catalyst for the Awakening
Henry Ward Beecher
Prayer Meetings Spread
