Robert Evans (Ph.D. Macquarie University) has a religious background in a tiny hyper-Calvinist Baptist denomination. He trained for the Methodist Ministry, and was ordained by the New South Wales Conference in 1967. He served as a Circuit minister, and subsequently also in the Uniting Church, retiring in 1998. In his private researches he has specialised in studying modern evangelical revivals, the great awakenings, and the literature relating to these movements, assembling a large private library about these subjects. He is currently the President of the Uniting Church Records and Historical Society in New South Wales. The author is also a noted amateur astronomer, widely known for his visual discoveries of many supernovae in other galaxies, mostly using "backyard" telescopes. He helped to lay the ground for other amateurs to be involved in this area of observational astronomy. His awards for this work include the Medal of the Order of Australia, for contributions to science, the Centenary Medal of the Societe Astronomique de France, and honorary membership of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. His first major book was Evangelical Revivals in New Zealand, written jointly with the Rev. Roy McKenzie, this was followed by Early Evangelical Revivals in Australia which tried to cover the subject up to the year 1880, and Evangelism and Revivals in Australia (1880-1914) a result of his Macquarie University Research.
