George Whitefield, regarded as the preaching wonder of his day, and John Newton, one of the leading spiritual guides of the movement that Whitefield had a significant hand in creating, Evangelicalism, are perennially interesting figures.
These lives, intertwined as this study of a portion of those lives reveals, speak across the centuries to our day. These two marvelous characters have much to teach contemporary Christians. A great read for both the professional historian and the thoughtful Christian.
... an invaluable contribution to new understanding of the shared theology and history of these two great servants of the Lord. I could not recommend it more.
... gave me fresh insights into the ministries of those special men, and a fresh appreciation for the grace of God that enabled them. This is history worth reading and pondering.
Grant Gordon's careful research has uncovered an important story, both for fleshing out the early history of modern evangelicalism and offering an encouraging picture of that evangelicalism at its best.
... a beautifully written book which brings Whitefield and Newton alive for a new generation.
George Whitefield and John Newton were two of the titans of eighteenth-century British evangelicalism. But for too long, the precise nature of their mutual influence has remained unclear. Grant Gordon's much-needed book rectifies that problem with its treasure trove of illuminating research.
... spiritually delightful and historically valuable study of the precious relational dynamic between two of the greatest Anglican evangelicals of the eighteenth century.
Reading of the interaction between these two men of such significant influence, when our church today so badly neds a similar evangelical revival, is likely to be 'a great blessing' to you!
Grant Gordon has written a full and careful study of their relations which reveals something of the calibre of the two men as devoted Christian leaders.
