The Memoirs of Charles G. Finney, the life record of the great American evangelist of the nineteenth century, became a treasured resource upon its publication in 1876, a year after Finney's death. But what wasn't known is that the original editor, Finney's friend James Harris Fairchild, had revised or omitted what seemed to him outrageous passages, exaggerated language, controversial statements, and repetitions. All subsequent editions were based on Fairchild's work. The discovery of long-forgotten Finney manuscripts in the 1970s led to over 10 years of research by editors Garth Rosell and Richard Dupuis, culminating in the publication, in 1989, of the first complete, restored text of Finney's memoirs, by Zondervan. This restored text brought to light Finney's entire memoirs in their original language. Longstanding omissions and inaccuracies were corrected. Comprehensive annotations supplied detailed, phrase-by-phrase and even word-by-word explanations.

The 1989 edition was a scholar's and historian's delight. However, the average reader who simply wants to read what Finney wrote doesn't need the scholarly minutiae. This new edition provides the complete, restored text of Finney's memoirs with no unnecessary details to obstruct a straightforward read. In bold, untouched language, Finney's thoughts march across the page with fascinating clarity and cohesiveness. For students of revival or anyone interested in the life of one of America's foremost evangelists, here in his own words is Charles Finney: his life, his thoughts, his struggles and accomplishments, and his abiding love for God and enduring commitment to the gospel of Christ.

After becoming a lawyer he carefully explored the claims of Christ and was powerfully converted in 1821. An avid student of the Bible, he soon engaged in preaching and teaching throughout many eastern and southern states. The result was a revival which altered the course of American history, it is estimated that more than half a million people were converted to Christ through his evangelistic ministry. In 1835 he accepted a call to Oberlin College as professor of theology, serving as president from 1851-1875.-Editorial Review.
