About the Author
"As soundness in theology and genuine priety wane from the Evangelical tradition, many believers, who feel a profound need for genuine Spirit-worked revival, find great encouragement by reading about past revivals. In this massive biography of George Whitefield, preacher par excellence of the Great Awakening who traveled thousands of miles to preach thousands of sermons to thousands of people, we find immense stimulation to rekindle the psalmist's prayer, 'It is time, Lord, for thee to work.' O that God would raise such men of godly zeal and endurance in our day!"

"Illuminating and informative, Dr. E. A. Johnston's new biography is an inspiring portrait of the great 18th Century evangelist. The volume is not only an advance for our understanding of Whitefield studies, but provides insight into the context, challenges, and relationships that shaped the Great Awakening. Johnston's work is a welcomed addition to the history of revivals. I heartily commend these well written volumes."
