John Wesley and George Whitefield were in many ways larger-than-life figures during their own lifetimes and continue to be so today. Yet our ability to appreciate their abiding influence on contemporary Evangelical theology and practice is lacking if we consider them in isolation from one another. Our understanding of Wesley and the legacy of his public ministry is impoverished apart from considering Whitefield (and vice versa).
This collection of essays explores the complex dynamics at work in the Wesley-Whitefield relationship, spanning a variety of theological, historical, and pastoral facets of their full-orbed public ministries. They serve as an invitation to grow in our awareness of their undoubted affinities and significant differences, all the while resisting the potential allure of either uncritically ecumenical “Wesley and” or uncharitably partisan “Whitefield versus” narratives.

The Philokalia is a collection of texts written between the fourth and the fifteenth centuries by the spiritual masters of the Orthodox Christian tradition. First published in Greek in 1782, then translated into Slavonic and later into Russian, The Philokalia has exercised an influence far greater than that of any book apart from the Bible in the recent history of the Orthodox Church. It is concerned with themes of universal importance: how man may develop his inner powers and awake from illusion; how he may overcome fragmentation and achieve spiritual wholeness; how he may attain the life of contemplative stillness and union with God.
Includes the writings of St. Theodoros the Great Ascetic, St. Maximos the Confessor, St. Thalassios, St. John of Damaskos and St. Theognostos.
Encourage your child to learn about George Whitefield, from his early beginnings as a hopeful actor in England through to his death in Newburyport, Massachusetts. A renowned Anglican preacher of the eighteenth century, Whitefield is most known for his foundation of the evangelical movement. Written with dialogue taken from direct quotes from Whitefield (in italics). Recommended for ages 8-14.
George Whitfield was one of the most extraordinary men of his time. Known mostly in connection with the Great Awakening of the 1700s, he befriended men like Benjamin Franklin, converted men like Patrick Henry, and inspired men like George Washington. Many of the American colonists considered him the father of their revolution. "Forgotten Founding Father" is an incisive look at the qualities of leadership that made him such an effective and powerful figure in both England and America and left a legacy that continues to this day.
George Whitefield (1714-1770) is remembered as a spirited revivalist, a catalyst for the Great Awakening, and a founder of the evangelical movement in America. But Whitefield was also a citizen of the British Empire who used his political savvy and theological creativity to champion the cause of imperial expansion. In this religious biography of "the Grand Itinerant," author Peter Choi reexamines the Great Awakening and its relationship to a fast-growing British Empire in the context of a dramatic human story.
As the British Empire and the Great Awakening evolved, so did Whitefield and his influence. Rather than focusing on his early preaching career, as many books do, Choi follows the trajectory of Whitefield's whole life, including his relation,ships to Britain, the American colonies, slavery, war, and higher education. George Whitefield: Evangelist for God and Empire tells the fascinating, multifaceted life story of Whitefield both as revivalist preacher and subject of the British Empire.

England in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries was in the midst of spiritual decline, marked by lifeless sermons, strife, persecution, and malaise. Into this dark time, George Whitefield burst forth as one of the greatest preachers the church had seen since the time of the Apostles.
Called the "Grand Itinerant" for his unprecedented preaching ministry, Whitefield crossed the Atlantic Ocean numerous times and lit fires of revival on two continents. Yet, as Dr. Steven J. Lawson illustrates in this latest entry in the Long Line of Godly Men Profiles series, we must note that Whitefield was a man whose extraordinary evangelistic fervor was marked by remarkable piety and deep theology, and whose unswerving devotion to his God led him to risk all that he had to preach the name of Christ.

The Sermons of George Whitefield consists of more than 60 sermons composed by George Whitefield--each carefully selected and edited--and presented in two durable hardcovers by Whitefield expert Lee Gatiss.
George Whitefield was the leading evangelical clergyman of the eighteenth century and one of the driving forces, humanly speaking, of revivals on both sides of the Atlantic, and worked with legendary revivalists Jonathan Edwards and John Wesley. Drawing on his charismatic personality, Whitefield's fiery preaching style had an almost intoxicating effect on his listeners-listeners whose numbers often rose above 5,000 people at once! Yet until now, his sermons have been left as an untapped resource in scholarship and for today's church. But Gatiss' contribution makes significant progress toward making Whitefield more accessible.
Gatiss includes careful and extensive footnotes detailing the historical and theological context necessary to understand Whitefield's preaching, message, and style. The language of Whitefield's text has also been updated for the twenty-first century with the additions of modern grammar, spelling, and punctuation--revised in a manner that leaves Whitefield's distinct voice intact and coherent for today's reader.
