The Great Awakening was a religious revival which swept through our country during the middle of the eighteenth century. The revivalists who labored during this Awakening placed too much emphasis upon emotion. They stressed sanctification, "feeling", and moral reform. They preached the new birth, new life, regeneration. They emphasized the immediate working of the Holy Ghost. It seems that they tried to save by sensation.
