George Whitefield (2 Vol. Set)
Author: Arnold Dallimore
Volume 1 brings the story of George Whitefield, and of the evangelical revival, up to the end of the year 1740. In it we are told in vivid detail how a young man of Gloucester 'at 16 a tapster, at 26 the most brilliant and popular preacher the modern world has ever known' exercised a ministry of the gospel crammed full of arduous labour and crowned with divine blessing.
Volume 2 covers the period 1741-1770. It opened with the doctrinal conflict with the two Wesleys and with a serious division in Methodist ranks, quickly followed by a visit to Scotland in which revival reached its high watermark. It follows the remaining events onwards until his death in 1770. An outstanding biography, popularly written, and with an urgent message for the present day.
