Example text

Given the city’s experiences with revivals that had come and gone over the course of the previous ten or twenty years, the quieting of the religious excitement was not unusual, and, in fact, it was expected. ” The great and general awakening for which Bostonians had prayed had not yet arrived, however. But the wheels were beginning to turn in that direction. As Frank Beardsley wrote, Finney’s preaching in Boston during the winter of 1856 –57 was a “forerunner” to the revival. 7 Lewis Tappan was impressed by the morning prayer meetings when he visited the city during Finney’s work there in the winter of 1856 –57.

The Liberator, mocking the maudlin quality of the petitions in prayer meetings, called the central feature of the revival a “theatrical prayer meeting,” while an insider at the Old South church referred to the “exhibitions of Christian experience . . ” Either way one viewed the matter, the element of performance was inescapable. And the course of the revival had in various ways underscored performance, none better than the highly publicized meetings in theatres themselves. A leading story in book-length accounts of the revivals and in newspapers everywhere was the transformation of Burton’s theatre on Chambers Street in New York into a room for prayer meetings.

For Parker, the revival was a retreat from confronting the five great evils of 1858, namely war, corruption of the federal government, slavery, a “war of business” that bred “robbers in a peaceful way,” and the subjugation of women. Ministers, who “come mainly from 01B-C1906 9/12/2001 11:43 AM Page 22 22 / Business of the Heart that class of people who are most affected by religious emotions,” and who “think they can tease God to do what they want done,” promoted emotional prayer as the focus of revival, and overlooked the necessity for reform, for unceasing work dedicated to the eradification of the world’s evils.
