This course studies revival through one particular unique revival. The activity of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament is not considered a revival, it was the foundation of the church. Over the years revivals have started due to preaching and/or prayer. Some begin in a particular location, some are imported usually by a visitor from another location.
The Scottish Revival of 1830 began as a response to the preaching and teaching of a Scottish Minister named Edward Irving. Irving saw no reason for the New Testament Gifts to stop and he preached this. A healing movement among young adults also contributed to the revival.
Perhaps the most notable characteristic of this revival is that it exploded as a full fledged Pentecostal movement among the Calvinistic Scots. Traditional Calvinism denies and rejects manifestations and feelings in the strongest and harshest terms. This revival broke out and grew in the midst of rigid doctrinalism.
This is a 4 semester credit hours course. To earn an Associate of Biblical Studies degree 24 semester credit hours are required. 2 semester credit hour courses will also be offered.
Scottish Revival - NF 194 Pages Print $19.95
This book is a combination of three of the Author’s earlier titles, Great Scot, Pentecost 1830, and A Man Approved Of God.
In late 1829 in the West Coast of Scotland a unique revival started. A Scottish pastor, Edward Irving, had been preaching on the Holy Spirit and he did not expect a full blown Pentecostal revival. The revival spread to Irving’s Scottish church in London and many people attended. As things grew to be more widespread Irving literally worked himself to death, caught pneumonia and died at the age of 42. His followers started the Catholic Apostolic Church which became heavily involved in liturgy. The denomination now exists only in Australia. This book studies the movement and the teachings of Edward Irving, a Reformed theologian, of unusual breadth.
