The Whitefieldian New England campaigns merged the revival narrative of New England with Whitefield’s own remarkable gifts into a new revival story. The New England campaign, though seeing many ‘conversions’, did not appear (in the end) to have lasting effects in a great number of people’s lives. But the story of the New England campaign gave wings to a new set of assumptions about how God works in the world, and that framework has shaped the prayers, hopes, and ministry strategies of millions of Christians ever since.
