He gave the entire English-speaking world a new face in four decades, becoming the instrument of 18th century revival - George Whitefield (1714-1770).
He was a worker of the gospel (during his life he preached over 30,000 sermons) and showed with shameful intensity what devotion is. And he was a peacemaker and a reconciler among brothers, a man of humility. Above all, he was a man overwhelmed by the grace of God. His life makes it clear that the true strength and motivation for holiness and devotion lies not in self-imposed laws, not in asceticism, nor in signs, wonders and ecstasy, but in complete trust in the God of all grace.
A very impressive, challenging and encouraging book!
