Walter Scott was enormously successful as an evangelist in the first half of the nineteenth century because of his development of a simple presentation of the gospel that came to be known as the “Five-Finger Exercise.” This study will examine the underlying Enlightenment assumptions that the Exercise employs and explore its viability for the postmodern milieu of the twenty-first century. In particular, the study will question the Exercise’s dependence upon sequentialism and rationalism.
