Bachelor of Divinity (B.Div)
In America today, customary usage interprets the term revival as generally applying to special religious services, protracted for a term of days or weeks, in which unusual efforts are put forth to reach the unconverted for the purpose of bringing them to repentance and winning them to lives of Christian faith and service. It is in this regard also that the Great Awakening has been termed a revival, for it extended over a period of years wherein special emphasis was put on emotional preaching for the purpose of arousing people to a rebirth of religious life. This fact will be seen in a later discussion of the point.
