Charles Finney and the Chruch of Christ
I was just at the Church History forum (under CARM) posted a thread with a question asking if anyone knew whether Charles Finney said or wrote anything about the Restoration movement. For those of you who are devoted students of the Bible as well as having some knowledge about the Restoration Movement and American church history (I am thinking of "Not Religious" right off hand) know that the Restoration Movement and Charles Finney's Ministry (the Second Great Awakening) took place during the same years or within the same area or they "ran" very close one to another. But there were some very stark differences between the 2 and I don't think the two movements could or would work together. Okay, I ask again, here, if anyone knows what Charles Finney wrote or said about the Restoration Movement? Is anything recorded by Finney that we have available to read today?
Now, let me flip the question. Did any of the leaders of the Restoration Movement write or say anything about Charles Finney's ministry and revivals? Also, if you wish, you may share what you think of Charles Finney's work and revivals. For those of you who would answer this last question I would ask that you have already read some of Charles Finney's sermons or articles; I mean, just don't share what you think by what others have said about him.
