Charles Finney (1792-1875) was an American Presbyterian preacher known for
his revival services and extemporaneous preaching. His Lectures to Professing
Christians contains twenty-five lectures delivered in New York City in 1836 and
1837. Finney spoke on various social and theological issues, but he hinted at the themes
of justification and sanctification in nearly every single lecture. The revivalist’s most
famous lectures are on Christian perfectionism, the doctrine that Christians can and
should live sinless lives of their own free will through Christ. During his lifetime,
Finney’s lectures stirred up considerable controversy. His ideas remain controversial
even today, as none have sufficiently ended the Calvinism/Arminian debate.
