Free Book Comparing the Methods of Charles Finney and John Nevin of Promoting the Gospel

Free on Kindle eBooks right now: Theology Drives Methodology: Conversion in the Theology of Charles Finney and John Nevin by  Karl Dahlfred.

Don’t have a Kindle, but like free eBooks? That’s okay, there is a Kindle app for your Mac, PC, etc. – Free Kindle Apps.

This looks like a very interesting book. The description states that Dahlfred examines the different theologies of Finney and Nevin and explains how their beliefs affected their methods of sharing the gospel.

Finney’s beliefs led him to use high-pressure revival meetings to induce conversions. Nevin’s beliefs led him to emphasize preaching, catechism, and pastoral care as the means that would produce conversions through the everyday ministry of the local church. Which man’s methods were correct? Your answer to that question all depends on what you believe about God, man, conversion, and the nature of the Gospel itself.
