Product Description

An engaging, indeed compelling, narrative of the life of George Whitfield, the great 18th-century revivalist. Harry Stout makes Whitfield and the issues that concerned him - Calvinism, Methodism, and the winning of souls to Christ - come alive. This is the best kind of history book: one that brings new scholarly insight to bear while at the same time providing a story accessible enough for students or general readers.

Publisher's Description

Commonly acknowledged as Anglo-America's most popular eighteenth-century preacher, George Whitefield commanded mass audiences across two continents through his personal charisma. Harry Stout draws on a number of sources, including the newspapers of Whitefield's day, to outline his subject's spectacular career as a public figure. Although Whitefield here emerges as very much a modern figures, given to shameless self-promotion and extravagant theatricality, Stout also shows that he was from first to last a Calvinist, earnest in his support of orthodox theological tenets and sincere in his concern for the spiritual welfare of the thousands to whom he preached.
