Revival Soteriology in a Nutshell

These four books provide a quick route to understanding the Gospel according to the four great revivalists of the Great Awakenings: Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley, George Whitefield, and Charles Finney. These are powerful weapons for open air preaching. But I would be careful of Calvinism in Edwards and Whitefield, sinless perfectionism in Wesley and Finney, and Pelagianism in Finney (denial of man’s sinful nature). They were not theologically perfect, but all of them were successful at getting people into the kingdom of God, and preaching the Gospel (justification and sanctification). And getting Christians to live for God.

About John Boruff

John Boruff is the founder of, a husband, father, and sometimes an open air preacher. He graduated from UNC Pembroke in 2008 with a B.A. in Philosophy and Religion and views himself as a Baptistic Pentecostal. As a Christian, he feels connected with all members of the body of Christ, but can identify the most with churches like the Assemblies of God and the Vineyard. In 2015, he released "The Gospel of Jesus Christ," which is meant to be a Bible study for open air preaching. For his other writings, search articles on this site or see the E-Books section.
