An outstanding biography, popularly written, and with an urgent message for the present day. Volume 1 brings the story of George Whitefield, and of the evangelical revival, up to the end of the year 1740. In it we are told in vivid detail how a young man of Gloucester - 'at 16 a tapster, at 26 the most brilliant and popular preacher the modern world has ever known' - exercised a ministry of the gospel crammed full of arduous labour and crowned with divine blessing. Volume 2 covers the period 1741-1770. It opened with the doctrinal conflict with the two Wesleys and with a serious division in Methodist ranks, quickly followed by a visit to Scotland in which revival reached its high watermark. It follows the remaining events onwards until his death in 1770.
