George Whitefield

Full Product Description

In the years prior to the American Revolution, George Whitefield was the most famous man in the colonies.

Thomas Kidd's new biography explores the extraordinary career of the most influential figure in the first generation of Anglo-American evangelical Christianity, examining his sometimes troubling stands on the pressing issues of the day, both secular and spiritual, and his relationships with such famous contemporaries as Benjamin Franklin, Jonathan Edwards, and John Wesley.

Based on the author's comprehensive studies of Whitefield's original sermons, journals and letters, this history chronicles the rise of the trailblazer of the Great Awakening. Whitefield's leadership role among the new evangelicals of the eighteenth century and his many religious disputes are meticulously covered, as are his major legacies and the permanent marks he left on evangelical Christian faith. It is arguably the most balanced biography to date of a controversial religious leader who, though relatively unknown three hundred years after his birth, was a true giant in his day and remains an important figure in America's history.

George Whitefield by Thomas S. Kidd was published by Yale University Press in January 2015 and is our 54689th best seller. The ISBN for George Whitefield is 9780300181623.
