George WhitefieldMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Originally published in 1973, I enjoyed it then, I still have my copy, and thoroughly enjoyed re-reading it. John Pollock is an excellent story teller and George Whitefield comes alive as you read about his life. From a hostelry in Gloucester, he became a Servitor at Pembroke College, Oxford where he met John and Charles Wesley. He joined with their group, derided as the ‘Holy Club’ and ‘Methodists’ by the others in the University. George Whitefield had already received a strong impression that he should preach, and soon that is precisely what he did but first he tried all sorts of ways to prove his devotion to God, and took things to extreme till he read a book which changed his life. He was then convinced that ‘new birth was the point of all devotion’. This he preached for the rest of his life. Though ordained into the Church of England, he sought out any who would listen to his message of salvation. Inevitably his ‘enthusiasm’ antagonised some but the majority of listeners in Britain and in his beloved American Colonies welcomed him with exuberance. John Pollock details how this came about.
