A major treatment of the early history of the Evangelical Movement in the Church of England in the eighteenth century, showing how evangelicalism was distinct from the Methodist revival under Wesley and Whitefield. The author calls it 'A religious and social study', placing the movement in its historical setting and taking note especially of the influences which affected it.

The book offers a valuable contribution to the study of evangelicalism and the relationship between Anglicanism and Nonconformity.
