Book Summary of Lectures on Revivals by W.B. Sprague


Believers should desire to both promote the cause of genuine revival in churches and to guard against “a spurious excitement” (p. xiii). When understood rightly, true revival of religion is a great blessing to the church and advances the cause of Christ in both the conversion of souls and in a heightened spiritual awareness and renewal in Christians toward the things of true gospel religion. When abused, revival is a detriment to the church, leading some in a false assurance as well as degenerating the purity of Christ’s church.

True revival of religion is a great blessing to the church that is needed in almost every age. William Sprague’s work consists of nine lectures that instruct us on how to understand and seek revival rightly even while guarding against certain pitfalls. Those who love revivals “will labor diligently for the promotion of their purity” (p. 258). The final 167 pages of the work is an appendix that consists of 20 letters written to Dr. Sprague concerning the nature of true revival as well as personal experiences and reports of revival.
