The “Log College” was the name contemptuously given to the ministerial college that was the forerunner of Princeton Seminary. Includes biographical sketches of William Tennent and students greatly used in revival ministry during the First Great Awakening.
Anderson, Neil T., and Elmer L. Towns. River of Revival. Ventura, California: Regal, 1997. One of most recent products of the theology of revivalism, this book is both interesting and distressing.

Armstrong, John H., ed. The Coming Evangelical Crisis: Current Challenges to the Authority of Scripture and the Gospel. Chicago: Moody Press, 1996.

This is a companion volume to the one listed above and addresses how the crisis can be seen in the doctrine and life of the church.
