by Savastano, Thomas Peter, D.Min., United Theological Seminary, 2015, 232; 10055460
Abstract (Summary)

The context for this qualitative study is the church leadership in New England that is interested in revival. The hypothesis is the following: New England church leaders believe that revival is nurtured through practicing love, demonstrated by being secure in God's love, having mutual servant love, and valuing each other's giftings and calling. The hypothesis was tested by means of grounded theory. Data was triangulated from surveys, interviews, and focus groups of eighty-seven leaders who have ministered in New England. The hypothesis was proven, showing a remarkable consensus that love nurtures and sustains revival.
