Asbury “Revival” – Compared to Cane Ridge

February 17, 2023

The Cane Ridge Revival of August 1801 was led by Barton W. Stone at his church in Cane Ridge, KY, near Lexington, KY. This is close to Wilmore, Kentucky, where Asbury is located. 222 years apart, there are some historical similarities and differences.

While this is older material–most of which was written in the 1990s–the historical perspective is still, I hope, helpful and some of the theology might be as well. 🙂 On the Academic page….. In 1994 […]
