When God Walked on Campus: A Brief History of Evangelical Awakenings at American Colleges and Universities
By Michael F. Gleason
Do you long for revival on your college or university campus? Is your heart burdened for the students you interact with each day? Here are some accounts of revivals in the past two centuries that will whet your appetite for the transforming work of God’s Spirit on your campus today. From the academic halls of America – Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Dartmouth, Brown, Middlebury, Union, Bethel, Wheaton, Williams, Trinity, Ashland, and many others – comes the stirring stories of awakening and revival. On both secular and Christian Campuses, the moving of God is evident as men and women were converted and stirred to ministry and foreign service. Out of these pockets of awakening came the formation or strengthening of student and campus fellowships such as InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Youth for Christ, Campus Crusade for Christ, Navigators, and the YMCA.
