Howel Harris, Daniel Rowland, William Williams - Pantycelyn, were all leading figures in a revival movement which became known as Calvinistic Methodism. Blending Calvinism and experimental religion, this 'theology for the heart' (Eifion Evans), through the church which arose from it, gave to Wales a distinctive ethos in which great preaching and deep piety were combined in a dynamic synthesis. In this very readable book William Williams captures the essence of a profound spiritual awakening which transformed the life of eighteenth and nineteenth century Wales.
William Williams (1817-1900) was a Calvinistic Methodist minister and popular preacher who wrote in both Welsh and English. This is his best-known book. Gwyn Davies lectures in Church History at the Evangelical Theological College of Wales, Bridgend.
