George Whitefield (2 Volume Set)
Regular Price: $69.00
At age 26, Whitefield was called "the most brilliant and popular preacher the modern world has ever known." In the wake of his preaching, revival swept across the British Isles and spilled over onto the shores of America. God's accomplishments through George Whitefield are to this day virtually unparalleled. When Whitefield died at age 55, he had preached 30,000 sermons. His hearers included not only the poor and the uneducated, but prominent English aristocrats and American statesmen such as David Hume and Benjamin Franklin. Christians today continue to take courage from Whitefield's humility and deep spirituality. A founder of Methodism, he yielded his leadership to John Wesley rather than risk splitting the movement, thus revealing his fervent commitment to the gospel of Christ rather than to personal plans or hopes.
Volume One brings the story of Whitefield's life and of the evangelical revival up to the end of the year 1740. Volume Two follows events onwards until his death in 1770. An outstanding biography, popularly written, and with an urgent message for the present day.
