Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

This edited and annotated, 2-volume set of George Whitefield’s sermons gives valuable historical and theological insight into his powerful and passionate preaching that lit the world on fire in the 18th century.

Author Bio

Lee Gatiss (PhD, Cambridge University) is the director of Church Society, a lecturer in church history at Union School of Theology, and a research fellow of the Jonathan Edwards Centre Africa at the University of the Free State, South Africa. He also serves as a member of the editorial board of Themelios and editor for the internet journal Theologian. Lee and his wife, Kerry, have three children.


George Whitefield was undoubtedly one of the greatest preachers of the modern Christian era, yet today he remains strangely neglected, even among evangelical Christians. Lee Gatiss’s excellent edition of Whitefield’s sermons will alleviate some of this undeserved obscurity. Pastors, professors, and laypeople would all do well to reflect on these sermons, which more than any other earthly force helped stir the massive revivals of the Great Awakening.
-Thomas Kidd,
Associate Professor of History, Baylor University; author, The Great Awakening: The Roots of Evangelical Christianity in Colonial America

Lee Gatiss has done us a service—dusting off, tidying up, and re-presenting Whitefield’s electric preaching to a new age. Gatiss’s introduction to the sermons is worth the price of the volumes alone. My prayer is that these sermons will raise up, and stir up, a generation to preach with gospel fire. Amen and Amen.
-Josh Moody,
Senior Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois; author, The God-Centered Life: Insights from Jonathan Edwards

George Whitefield has impacted my life and ministry more than I could ever measure. I could not be more excited about these sermons being back in print. One can only pray that the same Lord who used these sermons to shake the world so long ago will give us another Great Awakening through them. Whitefield’s own prayer for these sermons would surely accord with what he said when he gave the leadership of the Methodist movement to Wesley, 'Let the name of Whitefield perish, if only the name of Christ be glorified.'
-Jason C. Meyer,
Associate Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota

I have read some comments on the printed sermons of Whitefield that say these sermons don't translate well to the written medium. Well, I am sure it would have been amazing to hear him preach; but, given that, I find the written sermons to have an intrinsic fervor, power, clarity, and theological pungency that still leaps off the page into the conscience and affections in a gripping and edifying way. This publication is welcome; it will do us good and demonstrates once again that God’s truth transcends all generations and cultures and that God only rarely gives gifts to the church as transparently good as George Whitefield. Thanks to Lee Gatiss and thanks to Crossway.
-Tom J. Nettles,
Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

    George Whitefield was a servant used by God to bring revival back in the mid to late 1700s. His preaching style is wonderfully expository and is easily recognized as the style upon which Spurgeon modeled his preaching style. Extremely fruitful sermons. Thank the Lord that His servants from hundreds of years ago can still speak His word to us today!
