George Whitefield

George Whitefield

America's Spiritual Founding Father.
In the years prior to the American Revolution, George Whitefield was the most
famous man in the colonies. Thomas KiddÆs fascinating new biography explores
the extraordinary career of the most influential figure in the first generation
of Anglo-American evangelical Christianity, examining his sometimes troubling
stands on the pressing issues of the day, both secular and spiritual, and his
relationships with such famous contemporaries as Benjamin Franklin, Jonathan
Edwards, and John Wesley.
Based on the authorÆs comprehensive studies of WhitefieldÆs original sermons,
journals, and letters, this excellent history chronicles the phenomenal rise of
the trailblazer of the Great Awakening. WhitefieldÆs leadership role among the
new evangelicals of the eighteenth century and his many religious disputes are
meticulously covered, as are his major legacies and the permanent marks he left
on evangelical Christian faith. It is arguably the most balanced biography to
date of a controversial religious leader who, though relatively unknown three
hundred years after his birth, was a true giant in his day and remains an
important figure in AmericaÆs history.
This superb chronicle of George Whitefield's life is now our fullest " biography for the much-studied and much-debated eighteenth-century evangelist.
It combines unusual empathy with unusual comprehension. - Mark Noll"
