Summary

This fast-paced, inspirational narrative reveals how God used one man of great courage, discipline, and humility to bring countless souls to Christ.
God’s accomplishments through George Whitefield are to this day virtually unparalleled. In an era when many ministers were timid and apologetic in their preaching, he preached the gospel with aggressive zeal and undaunted courage. In the wake of his fearless preaching, revival swept across the British Isles, and the Great Awakening transformed the American colonies.
The previous two-volume work George Whitefield: The Life and Times of the Great Evangelist of the Eighteenth-Century Revival is now condensed into this single volume filled with primary-source quotations from the 18th century, not only from Whitefield but also from such prominent figures as John and Charles Wesley, Benjamin Franklin, and William Cowper.

A forgotten figure for many

This is a moving account of one of the greatest Christians who have ever lived. The author corrects a number of distortions about Whitefield which have been propagated by some writers about him. Whitefield's single-minded devotion to Christ is vividly portrayed but nowhere more than in the closing chapters. Soli Deo Gloria.

Very Engaging and Interesting! Great Narration!

I love reading/listening to biographies. This was short enough to listen to in a day and long enough to get in depth, and not just scratch at the surface of Whitefield's life. I love hearing about the life of George Whitefield and this was very satisfying, as I learned a lot more about the man and his friends (and enemies), than I had from other, shorter biographies.

By the way, the narrator, Bob Souer, was the icing on the cake. His smooth, clear and articulate delivery really made the book so easy to listen to. He obviously knew the subject matter. Sometimes, the narrator can make or break a good audio book, and Bob Souer really added great listening pleasure!

For fans of Whitefield, and biographies, I highly recommend this audio book!

Tremedous!

Dallimore is eminently readable and in this regard listenable. Proving His Word true The Lord gave Whitefield to the Church to equip the saints in manifold ways. How indebted we are to this man's example brought about by the hand of The Master he loved so well.
