Autumn and Hunter discuss “revival” or “renewal” and why it’s an important part of Christian life. The term “revival” is often confused with many other things, like “evangelism.” In this conversation, they attempt to define what revival actually is and why it’s important for already-Christians. Topics covered include: the history of revival in America (First and Second Great Awakenings), Jonathan Edwards vs. Charles Finney, John Wesley, Billy Graham, and last year’s Asbury College Revival.
