Great Awakening

Did some research on the 18th century Great Awakening today.
3 streams -- German Pietism, Irish Presbyterianism, and Wesleyan Methodism -- converged into something amazing that shouldn't be called an "ism".
Some significant characteristics of the revival:
1) Renewal of the clergy
2) Spiritual Hunger
3)Trans-denominational cooperation
4) Non-traditional methodology
5) Heavy opposition from traditionalists
