England in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries was in the midst of spiritual decline, marked by lifeless sermons, strife, persecution, and malaise. Into this dark time, George Whitefield burst forth as one of the greatest preachers the church had seen since the time of the Apostles.

Called the “Grand Itinerant” for his unprecedented preaching ministry, Whitefield crossed the Atlantic Ocean numerous times and lit fires of revival on two continents. Yet, as Dr. Steven J. Lawson illustrates, we must note that Whitefield was a man whose extraordinary evangelistic fervor was marked by remarkable piety and deep theology, and whose unswerving devotion to his God led him to risk all that he had to preach the name of Christ.

This book is part of the Long Line of Godly Men Profile series edited by Dr. Lawson, which includes biographies on such people as John CalvinJonathan EdwardsJohn KnoxMartyn Lloyd-JonesMartin LutherJohn OwenRichard SibbesCharles SpurgeonWilliam Tyndale, and Isaac Watts. The complete set is also available.
